Aruba unveils mobile-based PoS for retailers

Tuesday 17 January 2012 | 05:45 CET | News
WLAN equipment provider Aruba Networks has unveiled a smartphone- and tablet-based point-of-sale (PoS). The product was developed in agreement with Infinite Peripherals and LightSpeed, and enables retail sales staff to execute sales transactions from any location in a store. The point-of-sale device combines Infinite Peripherals' Linea-Pro, a combination barcode scanner/credit card swipe reader with LightSpeed Mobile, a mobile PoS application supported by Aruba access networks based on the Aruba Mobile Virtual Enterprise (Move) architecture. Access networks based on Aruba's Mobile Virtual Enterprise (Move) architecture enable policy enforcement based on device fingerprinting, application fingerprinting and location. Aruba's Mobile Device Admission Control (MDAC) helps ensure that smartphones and tablets can be shipped directly to stores for self-provisioning by general sales staff. Retail sales staff can use LightSpeed Mobile to connect to a LightSpeed database and process sales anywhere in the store with an iPod touch or beyond the store at pop-up locations, trade shows and special events, using an iPhone. Infinite Peripherals' Linea-pro allows mobile workers to convert their iPod touch and iPhone handset into a point-of-sale device.
