Star Micronics Introduces the "i" Series of iOS Compatible Bluetooth Printers

EDISON, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 02/19/13 -- Keeping up with the rapid pace of mobile technologies is a challenge many businesses face on a daily basis. To help alleviate the stress of keeping up with mobile technologies, Star Micronics is proud to offer end-users its "i" Series family of iOS compatible Bluetooth printers dedicated to mobile POS printing solutions. The members of this mobile-friendly series are the SM-S220i, SM-T300i, SM-T400i and TSP650II BTi.

The SM-S220i is the Star's first portable Bluetooth printer to be MFi certified by Apple for use with its iPad®, iPhone® and iPod touch®. Not only can Star's SM-S220i printer pair with iOS devices but it also supports the Bluetooth Serial Port Profile (SPP), meaning it can pair with devices running most other common operating systems including Windows® and Android™. As one of the first printers available with both of these Bluetooth technologies in one device, the SM-S220i will make it easier for resellers to offer a simple hardware solution to merchants that is compatible with all of the popular mobile platforms.

Star's SM-T300i (three inch printing) and SM-T400i (four inch printing) iOS compatible Bluetooth portable printers are ruggedized versions of the SM-S220i. Their rugged and water-resistant design coupled with long battery life makes the SM-T300i and SM-T400i welcomed options for any environment. The SM-T300i, available at the end of the month, allows for restaurant servers and clerks working in demanding retail and hospitality environments to print standard three inch format receipts wherever they need to, and the SM-T400i's four inch format is ideal for law enforcement to use in issuing e-citations. The SM-T400i will be available in early Q2. The iOS compatible, SM-T300i and SM-T400i seamlessly makes the task of mobile printing in a demanding work environment easy.

Last but not least is the TSP650II BTi, Star's first desktop MFi certified Bluetooth printer. Available in March 2013, it offers the convenience of mobile accessibility with high reliability and lightning fast print. Fully equipped with a Bluetooth interface, "drop in and print" paper loading, small footprint and reliable guillotine cutter, the TSP650II BTi is a welcomed addition to POS systems, ideal for retail establishments and restaurants.

"The mobile POS market is full of challenges for businesses, big and small," stated Christophe Naasz, Director of Business Development at Star Micronics. "Star Micronics is committed to providing innovative and reliable printing solutions to meet these demands."

Contextual Analytics of various threat data provides a deeper understanding of a given threat and enables identification of unknown threat vectors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Dufour, Head of Security Architecture, IoT, Webroot, Inc., discussed how through the use of Big Data analytics and deep data correlation across different threat types, it is possible to gain a better understanding of where, how and to what level of danger a malicious actor poses to an organization, and to determin...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...

In this session, we will use customer use cases...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
