Thursday 4 November 2004 22:45 CET | News

Hypercom has introduced the MegaNAC 240 high-density, multi-function point-of-sale network access controller to speed transactions for financial institutions, retailers, service providers and other high traffic transaction-oriented entities.

The compact MegaNAC 240 delivers unprecedented performance, speed, flexibility and data capacity to network operators who need to move thousands of transactions quickly, securely and accurately - and significantly lowers the cost per port for dial and IP transaction networks. Hypercoms new MegaNAC is being rolled out now to meet a significant and escalating market demand. Hypercoms MegaNAC 240 concentrator utilizes an advanced, high-density Digital Signal Processor (DSP) network interface module that supports a full T1, E1, or ISDN PRI trunk on a single card. As a result, a single 19-inch wide chassis can support up to eight digital trunk lines totaling 240 multi-speed, multi-protocol modem or data ports. The chassis also supports TCP/IP network interface cards, allowing a user to mix-and-match dial and IP transactions within a single, common platform. On the backbone network side, the MegaNAC 240 supports an array of host and WAN protocols, including TCP/IP, SNA/SDLC, X.25 and Frame Relay. Intelligent Integration for the Most Demanding Network Environments Fault tolerant, multi-function MegaNAC 240 devices can be interconnected to form high performance intelligent networks. These networks can support a wide variety of access modes and protocols, including all varieties of async and sync dial, ISDN V.110, direct digital data connections and TCP/IP, in the most demanding environments. Importantly, the MegaNAC 240 supports all modem modes up to V.92, including the Hypercom FastPOS, the 9600bps fast train modem technology that allows high speed transaction processing, software downloads and batch uploads. In addition to the network access interfaces, the MegaNAC 240 solution uses secure socket layer (SSL) to encrypt and transmit transactions virtually instantaneously. The high density, multi-function network access controller supports an array of host connection options such as X.25, SNA or TCP/IP, plus Wide Area Network interfaces, such as X.25, Frame Relay or IP VPN. Other features include hot-swappable port processors and dual AC or DC power supplies, dynamic multi-protocol dial access software, powerful transaction routing and load balancing functions, and protocol conversion. For IP networking users, the MegaNAC 240 can directly connect to the Internet and provide a complete firewall function to protect a corporate LAN. The MegaNAC 240 can also connect to Hypercoms IN-tact IP Gateway Converter to provide TCP/IP consolidation. And thats not all. The feature-rich HypercomViewâ„¢ network management system and associated applications for the MegaNAC 240 provides all of the tools needed to manage high volume point-of-sale/point-of-transaction networks in a true client/server architecture. Specifically designed for transaction networks, these systems provide features for status monitoring and detailed reporting, configuration management, activity and performance statistics, alerts and alarms, transaction statistics and analysis, remote downloads and upgrades.
