Acknowledging NCR Corp’s dominant position in the retail point of-sale business, AT&T Co has teamed up with the Daytoner to create a systems architecture enabling department stores to use a common network for speech and point-of-sale data communications at the store level. AT&T and NCR have tested the architecture by connecting NCR point-of-sale terminals through AT&T PABXs. For the test, an NCR Tower Unix supermicro, a T9100 processor and the NCR 7052/7003 Stores system were linked to AT&T System 75 and System 85 PABXs connected by the AT&T Accunet T1.5 Service. Testing is under way to include AT&T’s Premises Distribution System wiring plan for connecting voice and data systems within a building, building complex or campus, which would simplify the task of reconfiguring the two nets. The partners promise end-to end system support so that if there is a failure, AT&T and NCR will provide the technical support to solve the problem in a co operative manner. The combined data/voice architecture from AT&T and NCR is available now in the US; cost and savings will depend on the size and type of systems installed at each store. The announcement was made at this week’s National Retail Merchants Association show, New York.
