A new connection has emerged that will change the way point of sale systems operate on a network. Revel Systems has developed an Ethernet cable connection that links the Apple iPad to a network via a wired connection. This exciting development is called the Revel Ethernet Connect.
So, why the wired connection? The Revel Ethernet Connect was created as an alternative option to a wireless connection for a couple reasons:
• To give customers a reliable connection to their network • To heighten security measures • To speed up installation of new customers
Improving the customer experience is at the forefront of the Ethernet cable addition. Attached to the Apple iPad, the Ethernet cabled solution is vastly more reliable than a basic WiFi network. WiFi networks that are not properly setup and/or managed can contain potential security threats, causing breaches. A wired Ethernet connection is also the fastest way to process high volume transactions. There are no POS transaction delays with the Revel Ethernet Connect, meaning no slowdown for transactions and long lines.
