Encore Networks, a leader in Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions for fixed and wireless communications, announced that WorldPay US, Inc. has certified Encore's line of C2C routers for wireless Automatic Teller Machine (ATM) transactions. After product compatibility testing, the C2C router was approved for global wireless transactions over the WorldPay processing platform.
The C2C is immediately available to WorldPay ATM clients. Encore Networks and its C2C line of wireless and wireline routers will be on display at the 2012 WorldPay ATM Distributor Conference. This year's conference is being held September 18 - 20, 2012, in Atlanta, GA.
Available in both industrially hardened and commercial grade models, the C2C is a low-cost, embedded, cellular replacement for Plain Old Telephone Services (POTs) lines when migrating Legacy ATMs to advanced IP over cellular. By converting dial-up ATMs to IP-based cellular services, the C2C provides existing ATMs with the benefits of a 3G network's increased throughput, reduced costs, reliability, and speed.
"Certifying Encore's C2C further enhances the suite of best-in-class tools available to our ATM ISO partners," said Michael Cowart, WorldPay Vice President of ATM and ISO. "The additional security the C2C provides ATMs using dial and IP users is something we believe will add tremendous value."
The C2C is best in class in protecting an ATM providers' investment by providing the utmost in flexibility and provisioning choices. The C2C supports either AC or DC power and can provide loss of site power notification when equipped with the Power Failure Alert feature.
"We were pleased when we received the final test results for our C2C," stated Scott Harper, Vice President of Product Management for Encore Networks. "WorldPay's first class Quality Assurance test environment puts products through rigorous tests resulting in certification for only the best."
