Live Payments teams TNS for Smart Terminal upgrade

Friday 18 November 2022 10:19 CET | News

Australia-based payment services provider Live Payments has teamed up with Transaction Network Services (TNS) to leverage its network for a Smart Terminal upgrade.


Live Payments is looking to strengthen its 8,000 terminals with managed connectivity from TNS as part of a strategic upgrade to its nationwide network.  As such, following partnership, the company will be enabled to use TNS’ resilient and fully managed 4G-connected payments network to power its smart terminals collection.

By collaborating with TNS on the Smart Terminals migration, the company will be enabled to offer transactions in a faster manner, with innovative commerce and payments capabilities, support for new apps, and the ability to build value added services more efficiently. TNS’ 4G connectivity will be used alongside the Smart Terminal’s Wi-Fi and offline processing capabilities. TNS’ managed service offering provides resilient connectivity while simultaneously delivering heightened levels of security, as data is routed across TNS’ PCI DSS certified payments network, thus eliminating the risk of misusing SIM card data which is present when SIMs are exposed to the internet. 

Speaking on the partnership, Live Payments officials have stated in the press release that the enhanced level of security that is provided by TNS’ network and its round the clock monitoring and support is what made the company a strategic fit for their business, stating that the smart terminal technology aims to empower their customers to focus on their core objectives and leave the payments service elements to them. With TNS having experience in facilitating moves to the latest technology, company representatives have advised that offering support in enabling Live Payments’ adoption of smart terminals and secure and resilient connectivity plays to TNS’ strength, continuing to say that they are looking forward to being a part of Live Payments’ digital transformation.
