Title: SYSTEM FOR CARRYING OUT A TRANSACTION
Abstract:
The invention relates to a system for carrying out transactions using terminals that basically enable the execution of a plurality of different transactions. To this end, the terminals (10, 11) are connected to at least one node computer (40, 41) by a terminal network (30) that can be set up for carrying out a transaction. Appropriateness to execute another transaction that has not been hitherto prepared can be subsequently established at any time without requiring any special setup measures. A terminal (10, 11) requests data from a node computer (40, 41) which responds to a triggering signal characterizing the other transaction, said data providing the functionality needed to carry out the other transaction. Execution of the transaction is then effected by interaction between the terminal (10, 11) and a node computer (40, 41).
