Symbol Technologies today announced the availability of
wireless support for IBM's 4694 point of sale terminals,
using Symbol's Spectrum 24 wireless networking

>From now on, retailers using IBM 4694 POS terminals will be
able easily to add extra terminals during peak selling times
or to set up terminals in special locations - for example,
on the pavement outside a store. In addition, customers who
have already standardised on Symbol's Spectrum 24 wireless
LAN technology will be able to integrate the IBM POS
terminals into their environment.

Symbol's wireless POS solution simultaneously and
transparently supports IBM's 4694 POS terminals and Symbol's
own hand-held computers.

Spectrum 24, operating at the global 2.4GHz frequency,
functions as a full wireless LAN. The Spectrum 24
infrastructure provides a transparent connection to wired
LANs through special access points.

"Spectrum 24 offers retail customers the flexibility,
scalability, and reliability necessary to implement a
wireless point of sale infrastructure", said Shoaib Oosman,
product marketing manager, mobile and wireless systems for
Symbol Technologies International.

Support of Spectrum 24 in the IBM wireless point of sale
environments enhances the current marketing strategies
between IBM Retail Systems Solutions group and Symbol
Technologies - providing complete solutions to Symbol's
retail customer base. - ends -Notes to Editors Symbol
