For the people with retail businesses, obviously they are facing a lot of similar issues such as lack of a high amount of reliability, security and network management. For the ATM operators, generally not all ATM machines are in one place; they are dispersed within villages and cities, so operators need to look for effective methods to collect their data back securely.

Besides, how much time it takes to connect machines and get them out in the market determines how much profits operators can make from their investment. To tackle such problems, Ursalink adopts industrial grade UR32 3G/4G router to provide a reliable, stable and secure connectivity solution for ATM transaction over mobile cellular network.

Challenges

Trditionally, data of ATM transaction has been frowarded via fixed-line connection, which brings much difficulty and inconvenience to install and setup at branches and standalone ATMs, such as in subway station, shopping mall and airport. And it would be a high-cost investment to relocate the ATM for banks and financial institution.

  1. Network deployment in unattended area with limited space
  2. Expensive Ethernet feed for Internet
  3. High maintenance cost for always-on cellular connectivity and uptime
  4. Lack of reliability and security for retail transactions

Solution

Ursalink offer the speed and trustworthy you need for your ATMs without compromising the privacy of your customers.

The big focus on high security in the retail businesses in fact results from the large amount of data transmission of financial information; therefore, since the IoT device UR32 router supports secure VPN transmission for the cellular data, any type of VPN that customers use is supported in the router. And the firewall will monitor and control incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined rules.

The other big focus is on the high reliability. Since UR32 router upports auto recovery and redundancy features, it is no doubt that it plays a key role in the “always-on” Internet connectivity by cellular. Thanks to the Ursalink DeviceHub platform, ATM operators can easily realize configuration in bulk and efficiently implement central network management for all deployed routers.

The fast and easy ATM installation, operation and relocation is no longer a challenge. UR32 router  doesn’t neither require an Ethernet connection or consume infrastructure resources, as it uses the router’s connectivity. Furthermore, it protect the device from hackers since the device doesn’t use addition IPs.

In addition, CCTV connection is another common deployment for ATM applications. Inside the UR32 router, there’s a PoE capable port that can connect with a camera for both power supply and data transmission.
