Industry leaders Global Payments and Casio combine their industry expertise to deliver a versatile NEW EPoS package

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 04 December 2012 Release date- 03122012 - Global Payments and Casio Electronics Co. Limited announced today that they have been working together on a new Electronic Point of Sale (EPoS) package for small high-street retailers.

Traditionally, retailers have been challenged with sourcing the separate components of their PoS solution from a variety of suppliers with hardware, software, PoS installation and support being provided by many different organisations which creates ownership problems for the smaller merchant.

The powerful combination of these two global organisations allows the smaller merchant to install the EPoS hardware and PIN Entry Devices (PED) all from one source, making installation and training much easier to deliver and monitor. The Casio AndroidTM platform VX-100 EPoS terminal provides the customer-facing PoS solution, complete with stock control, appointment booking and business management tools within the core software. Global Payments' Global POS Link connects their terminal to the till for taking payments at a fixed location, when mobile on a shop floor or within a hospitality setting.

Clear benefits have been identified for smaller retailers: The small footprint of the Casio VX-100 takes less space on the countertop The solution's low power requirements create a typical saving of 85% against traditional WindowsTM based EPoS solutions An all-in-one EPoS solution with built-in easy loading printer, customer display and large 10.4' touch-screen LCD for the operator Additional apps for queue busting, electronic vouchers and receipts and SMS / email marketing to the retailers' customers The Global POS Link enables easier reconciliation with only one end of day report produced All terminals provided are Global Payments' accredited and provide all of the card/payment functionality which reduces testing requirements All transactional data (card number, expiry date, etc.) is kept away from the till or any back office system and is encrypted Allows the acceptance of the widest range of chip & PIN cards Option of printing receipts using the payment terminal either at the till or on your card terminal, and using a terminal separately if your POS system is not yet installed or not working All terminals and PIN-Pads are Contactless compatible** to allow additional, faster payment methods for your customers in a hurry and to help prevent queues in your outlet The combined package has been developed for independent retailers looking to install a completely integrated EPoS solution without having to find the considerable investment needed in the past.

Chris Davies, Managing Director of Global Payments, explains that, 'The high street is a challenging place for small independent retailers today, with the internet and larger stores attracting an increasing share of their traditional business. Global Payments and Casio will help make customer acquisition and the payment process much more straightforward, which will help the retailer to provide a better customer experience and increase loyalty'.

The Global POS Link from Global Payments and the VX-100 till from Casio are now available in the UK.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
