SAN FRANCISCO, June 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Revel Systems, the leader in iPad point-of-sale solutions, today announced the release of the Revel Router, a "made-for-iPad" device that allows retail shops and restaurants to run their iPad POS systems without additional Internet connection hardware or wiring. The Revel Router – patent pending – accesses an Internet connection directly via the user's Verizon 3G- or 4G-enabled Apple iPad, eliminating the need for an Ethernet router or a MiFi 3G hotspot.
By removing the need for bulky connectivity hardware and cabling, the Revel Router finally saves customers the time and money it takes to maintain traditional POS infrastructure. This first-of-its-kind transformative connectivity solution is purpose-built to meet the needs of POS users, allowing them to focus on what matters most—better serving their end customers.
"The Revel Router is completely disruptive for the point-of-sale industry," said Lisa Falzone, CEO and co-founder of Revel Systems. "Many of our customers need quick, easy-to-use mobile solutions, so spending time troubleshooting an Ethernet router just isn't an option, and the Revel Router completely solves this problem. There are no cables or cords, and you don't have to deal with Internet connectivity issues, which allows for a completely seamless cloud-based solution. It just works."
Following an exhaustive search and rounds of testing with routers from leading legacy routing equipment makers to identify an adequate connectivity technology, Revel Systems came to the conclusion that no existing solution was capable of providing an affordable, secure and reliable connection without bulky equipment. The company developed the Revel Router as a proprietary technology in conjunction with the Apple Hardware program. Until now, Revel Systems has released the router to only a few select beta testers and has received an overwhelmingly positive response.
Priced at $3,200 per terminal, the cost-effective Revel Router is available for pre-order immediately, and will ship June 29th, 2012.
