Alphyra UK Ltd selects Transaction Network Services for GPRS mobile phone services

Friday 27 February 2004 11:48 CET | News

Alphyra UK has teamed up with Transaction Network Services (TNS), to provide wireless connectivity enabling mobile phone top-up services to be available in locations that have previously proved difficult to service.

Under the terms of the UK pilot, TNS is providing General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) Sim cards in a number of alphyra kiosks on behalf of travel operator Travelex. These cards allow kiosk customers to quickly credit their mobile phones with additional talk time. The kiosk customer initially chooses a top-up value and completes payment. The kiosk then generates a top-up request, which is routed via TNS for delivery to alphyra’s processing host. Alphyra then switches the transaction to the appropriate mobile operator for immediate authorisation. Additional talk time is then credited without the kiosk customer having to activate a separate PIN for airtime authorisation.
