FoodBucket Appliance

Foodbucket Appliance is enterprise-grade hardware that comes with a FoodBucket server, a built-in Router OS, An SNMP, and a Diagnostic system for our FoodBucket technician.

Our FoodBucket appliance is a masterpiece machine that just needs a push of a button to start and then anything that connects to it gels into our system and starts working.

Network Switch

A network switch is required to connect more devices to Foodbucket Appliance in order to communicate with our system and also with each other for example Printers, KDS Clients, and Wifi Access Points. All can be connected to Foodbucket Appliance via Network Switch with an ethernet cable.

Make sure your Network Switch has a number of required ports. A typical system with 4 KDS Clients + 1 Wifi Access + 2 Printers router will require 8 Ports.

One to connect to FoodBucket Appliance and 7 for connecting to other devices using an ethernet cable.

Network Hub

A network hub can also be used to serve the purpose but they usually under-perform.

Access Point / Wi-Fi Router

A Wi-Fi access point also called Wi-Fi Router is used to create Wi-Fi access to the FoodBucket appliances. This is used when you have a device that supports Wi-Fi e.g. iPad, Android Tablet, etc. They are connected to an Access Point which is connected to the FoodBucket appliance.

Desktop / iPad / Tablet

This is required to verify checks and see if our appliance is working perfectly and then we connect it to our POS application.
