Cabled Network Connectivity for Tablet POS
Star’s unique SteadyLAN™ technology makes unstable Wi-Fi signals a thing of the past!
Star’s SteadyLAN™ patent pending technology is the market’s first solution to provide control of the POS printer and attached peripherals as well as network tethering to iOS, Android and Windows tablets and mobile devices via the Ethernet port of the printer. This includes iOS devices with Star’s mCP21LB, mCP31L, mCP31LB printers and supported Android, Windows and Mac devices with Star’s mCP31C and mCP31CB printers.
Simply by connecting a tablet to the mC-Print printer via the standard Lightning USB or USB-C cable and connecting the printer to the internet via a wired LAN connection, the tablet is able to connect to the internet without WiFi communication. At the same time, the tablet can communicate with the printer via USB or LAN and the printer will also charge the tablet.
For locations where WiFi connectivity is not possible or unreliable, the stability of a cabled internet connection combined with the flexibility of Tablet POS is now possible.
