Secure transaction and payment processing over the digital highway
Fast and easy integration of card reader terminals into global networks
Whether paying the fare in a taxi, the check at a restaurant, for your food or beverage at a vending machine, or purchases in a retail shop, users of your payment terminal expect rapid, secure, reliable processing of electronic payment transactions.
In today’s fast-moving, mobile world, point-of-sale (POS) terminals that are self-service or merchant-operated must include features that ensure the satisfaction of the payer, the merchant/service provider, and the payment processor.
Many appliances accepting payments are POS devices in every respect, requiring a high degree of security to transfer payment information. Typical devices include:
- Credit card terminals
- Fuel pumps
- Vending machines (food, beverage, and industrial products)
- Commercial washing machines
Proper terminal hardware and software design should enable rapid implementation of new communications standards and protocols, such as Near Field Communications (NFC) or compliance with security regulations such as PCI DSS, for example. Correct design should ensure:
- enterprise security
- immunity to hacking
- easy switching between LAN and WAN operating modes
- fully certified WiFi modules
Connect One’s low-cost wireless solutions, for example, provide the above capabilities and include among many other features:
- remotely updateable firmware
- internal hardware firewall
- internal or external antenna option
- WiFi access point services with routing to a cellular modem (3G router)
