Transaction Network Services (TNS) is taking centre stage at the Cards & Payments Conference in Melbourne next week when it showcases its latest two new payments solutions and a senior executive plays a major role in the conference agenda.
Delegates will be able to learn more about TNS’ new Global Wireless Access product, which is a multi-carrier, wireless roaming SIM solution designed specifically for wireless point-of-sale terminals. This is the first time the service will be showcased following its official launch just a few weeks ago.
Alongside Global Wireless Access will be TNSLink, a portfolio of retail, kiosk and ATM solutions which has recently been enhanced to include 4G/LTE network support across Asia and Australasia.
“We’re delighted to be taking such an active role in this year’s event,” said Lisa Shipley, Executive Vice President and General Manager of TNS’ Payment Network Solutions, who will be speaking on the Identity, Payment Security and Fraud in the Digital World panel at 12:20pm on Wednesday 20th May. “This is a great forum, bringing together important players from across the industry to participate in valuable discussions which will help us to advance the payments infrastructure across this important market.”
Launched to the Asia Pacific region during April, Global Wireless Access provides secure and reliable payment-specific wireless connectivity in over 150 countries around the world. Helping to mitigate single carrier blackspots, the solution adds much needed reliability to wireless terminal deployments, enhancing the operation and management of terminal fleets for processors and acquirers. Performance and reliability are further enhanced by TNS’ optional Roam+ terminal application which provides quality of service based carrier selection along with easy to use features to enable estate owners to minimise merchant impact due to poor wireless coverage in any given area.
TNSLink for ATMs enables ATM operators to use next generation, bandwidth sensitive applications. The addition of 4G/LTE support will help protect investments in ATM networks as telecommunications operators rapidly migrate from 2G to 3G and 4G networks while operators in Australia work hard to keep up with the impending EMV mandates in 2015. TNSLink currently connects tens of thousands of ATMs across the world, using 2G and 3G carriage, and is now also able to support 4G speeds and frequencies as each market goes live with LTE.
With a strong payments heritage and more than 20 years of expertise, TNS now provides services in more than 60 countries across Europe, the Americas and the Asia Pacific regions. TNS is a Level 1 PCI DSS certified service provider and its secure network is supported 24x7x365 by its Network Operating Centres around the world.
