Internet Speed 
NCR Silver Pro can operate in limited capacity with no Internet connection; however, you must access the Internet for cloud-based functions to work.
Internet is necessary for initial installation, to upload sales data, and to authorize credit cards and gifts cards.

Without Internet connectivity, you cannot submit sales data or download Silver Back Office configuration changes. Unless you enable offline credit, only cash transactions are available without an Internet connection.
Internet speed recommendations:
  • A single POS device requires at least 1.5 mbps download speed and 1.0 mbps upload speed.
  • A single device requires 1.5 mbps download speed and 1.0 mbps upload speed.
  • For each additional device, the download speed requirement should be increased by ~1.0 mbps and the upload by ~500 kbps.
  • Confirm with the store’s internet service provider that the service is considered high-speed or broadband.
