Connect Ones Wi-Fi Solution Connects Devices to IP Networks

Tuesday 4 November 2003 08:51 CET | News

VeriFone has designed Connect Ones iChip CO710AG Internet Controller into their popular Omni 3600 portable wireless terminal to enable IEEE 802.11b Wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) connectivity. VeriFone is the only POS terminal manufacturer offering an entire line of Internet Protocol (IP)-enabled terminals that support Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and cellular connectivity. The selection of iChip CO710AG follows VeriFones successful deployment of iChip CO561AD in the Omni 3750 terminal for wired 10BaseT LAN access. VeriFone recently announced that Ford Motor Company is migrating more than 4,600 Ford and Lincoln-Mercury dealers from dial-up modems to faster IP-enabled systems. A primary reason why Ford chose VeriFones Omni 3750 was the modular design of the terminal, allowing different communications modules to be swapped, depending on the communications needs of the dealership. VeriFones Omni 3750 effortlessly adjusts to merchants changing requirements with field-replaceable Communication and Security Access Modules (SAMs). Customers can choose from a 2,400 bps modem, 14.4 kbps modem, ISDN, or Ethernet communications modules. The Omni 3600 is the only POS terminal on the market that supports packet-based GPRS and CDMA 1x service, as well as 802.11b Wi-Fi. With the "always on" connectivity supported by IP-based networks, the terminals can process transactions in two to four seconds, the fastest in the industry, according to VeriFone.
