    Star Micronics Co., Ltd. will launch the “Wireless LAN Unit” that can convert a wired LAN port (*1) to a
    wireless LAN in order to meet the demand for printer operation in a wireless network environment. This product
    will be lined up as a new peripheral device for the receipt printer mC-Print®, which boasts a high market share in
    the mPOS (*2) market.

    The mC-Print® series printers released in 2018, have multiple interfaces in one unit, and due to their convenience,
    they are used in various situations such as printing receipts, waiting tickets for the queue management systems,
    and kitchen order slip in store usage. In recent years, IT systems such as POS have been acceleratingly evolving in
    retail stores and restaurants, and store systems are becoming more diversified. As a result, the flexible

    This product enables wireless network connection in stores where the LAN wiring work is difficult or has trouble
    with complicated wiring. It can realize a neat layout without being restricted by wiring or location. In addition, it
    supports the 5GHz band, which is resistant to the interference of radio waves generated by microwave ovens, so it
    can be used safely in the kitchen of restaurants. Even in stores that already use the mC-Print® printer via wired
    LAN, there is no need for additional settings to the application, and it is easy to switch to wireless by simply
    adding this product. By providing this Wireless LAN Unit, we will further improve convenience in store
    operations and further expand our market share in the mPOS field.
