Columbus Data Services and TNS Further ATM Migration to IP Infrastructure

Tuesday 4 November 2003 17:56 CET | News

Columbus Data Services (CDS) has deployed TNS TransXpress Secure to further the migration from legacy processing protocols to an IP infrastructure by enabling ATM operators to access TNS private transaction data network via the Internet.TNS, one of the worlds leading providers of fast, cost-effective data communications services for transaction-oriented applications, recently began offering TransXpress Secure to support access to TNS secure data networks via the Internet. TransXpress Secure requires an IP connection from client-side devices through the Internet and manages security concerns associated with Internet connectivity by providing a secure path between the client and the secure TNS network through a fully-managed VPN (Virtual Private Network). Now, CDS can enable ATM operators to use their existing network connections provided by the local Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to access TNS secure data networks, eliminating the need to add another communication path into its organization. The IP processing infrastructure uses Transmission Control Protocol (TCP/IP) to establish a direct virtual connection between the ATM and their host. By migrating from leased-line, legacy protocols, (such as 3270 bisync, SNA/SDLC) to TCP/IP, ATM terminal operators will experience the benefits of reduced network communication costs and faster transactions through an always-on, secure connection. CDS provides processing, driving, monitoring, settlement, reconciliation, cash management, vault cash services and ATM card management programs for ATM operators and financial institutions.
