Transaction Switching

Around the world, financial institutions require functional, compliant and flexible systems that can acquire, authenticate, route, and authorize large volumes of financial and non-financial transactions across multiple channels. The foundation platform used for the payments processing business is switching. The switch drives all the industry standard front-end devices such as ATMs, POS, cash-in systems, and provides transaction authorization by connecting to hosts, interchanges and co-networks. Transaction processing as a business expects reliability, scalability, flexibility, extendibility, availability & efficiency from a switching application.
