LONDON -- Axalto, formerly Schlumberger Smart Cards and Terminals, announces the expansion of its MagIC X1000 product range with a WiFi 802.11b enabled wireless point of sale terminal. The terminal, which will be rolled out in large volumes early next year, is able to accept both off and online remote payments transaction up to 300 metres from the docking station. It will enable shopping malls retailers and other businesses to offer customers more flexible and secure solutions for payment.

The WiFi-enabled MagIC X1000 offers key advantages: it is easy to install so it can be put in service and start processing payments very quickly. As all the online transactions are transmitted over the Wireless Local Area Networks (LANs), there is no wired lines required, and therefore provides considerable cost savings. Finally, the WiFi-based payment transactions speed is also considerably faster – by several seconds - than standard POS installations.

This development marks the completion of the range of point of sale terminals Axalto now offers to cover every customer’s requirements, including CDMA, GPRS, GSM, and now WiFi.

"WiFi is spreading out very fast bringing the wireless technology to a new stage, in particular in terms of performance and cost of ownership. Axalto believes that the market will respond positively to this technology and is looking forward to implementing it on a wide scale in 2004," says Michel Léger, vice president e-payment at Axalto.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
