High Speed Internet Conversion Deployed for Gift Card Terminal Networks
San Diego, CA – Systech Computer Corporation, a leading provider of IP network conversion devices,
today announced that its’ IPG-7010 dial-to-IP device will be used by Alphyra UK, Ltd., a UK-based
payment processor, to enable existing dial-based terminals to communicate through broadband connections
at various retail locations.
The primary goal addressed by Alphyra’s solution is to eliminate phone lines to significantly reduce costs.
An equally important requirement was to enable the conversion to IP using the existing dial-based gift card
terminals. The Systech IPG-7010 was the ideal solution for meeting both requirements.
At retail locations with gift card terminals, for example, the terminals are used to purchase gift cards and
mobile phone airtime, and to process loyalty program transactions. The Systech device converts the dial
port on the terminal to IP, eliminating the need for a dial up connection. The payment transactions now
travel securely encrypted on the broadband connection. The existing terminals required no capital
expenditures for upgrades, or buying new IP enabled terminals.
"Alphyra’s solution using the IPG-7010 resulted in the phone lines being eliminated, and transactions
processed on a faster, more reliable IP network,” said Jon Goby, Systech's Vice President Sales. "Systech’s
dial-to-IP and serial-to-IP network conversion solutions continue to allow payment processors and retailers
to reap the recurring financial benefits of IP communications with no major capital expenditures and no
changes to in-store operator interfaces."
Systech devices are available through leading retail, electronic payment and POS system resellers in the
U.S. and Europe.
