Mobile payments are becoming more and more popular slowly replacing traditional non-cash payment methods such as a credit card. The main reason for this is the convenience and speed of such a payment. You do not have to pull out a wallet, then a card and then enter a PIN. You simply place the mobile phone to the terminal and the payment is done almost instantly, with a confirmation or the ticket sent directly to your mobile. This makes the payment also much easier.
Of course, this technology brings new problems for companies that want to implement these payments. To ensure that payments of this type can work quickly and safely, better communication quality is needed. For self-service terminals such as ATMs, vending machines and others, there is a need to carry out this transaction almost instantly. Any outages or delays are therefore unacceptable.
Therefore, Robustel has decided to solve this problem using its R2000-Dual routers. Compared to other routers fitted with two SIM cards, this router can maintain a connection to two networks at the same time, and in the event of one network failing, immediately switches the connection to the other network. This opens the gate to more demanding solutions, as already mentioned bank transfers, when several payment terminals can be connected to this router without losing performance. R2000-Dual also offers, like all routers in this series, secure VPN connections or cloud management.
