Ocius Terminals / Internet Authorisation

If you are using a fixed terminal with authorisation over the internet then you will need an ethernet switch to connect the devices together (if you have more than one device) and a router that is able to forward the authorisation request from the terminal to your ISP over your broadband or permanent internet connection. The router will need to have an ethernet port to connect to your switch and an ethernet port to connect to your internet connection. Many routers have an integrated switch which will have a number of ethernet network ports into which you can connect your fixed terminals and your PC / PCs. You will also need a broadband modem if this is not integrated into your broadband router. This very much depends on the particular manufacturer and piece of router hardware - and to be honest it can be a bit of a minefield. In the majority of cases it is easiest and simplest to try to obtain a device that includes all the functions you require: i.e. ADSL broadband modem, router functionality, ethernet hub/switch with at least 4 ethernet ports and a stateful packet inspection firewall. If you are using a wireless terminal then you will need a device that supports WiFi as well. Again if you have nothing currently in place we recommend that you get an all-in-one device if possible.

For failover situations where you require a backup for your broadband ADSL line (or where you cannot obtain an ADSL line or where cost is prohibitive) )we offer communications devices that utilise the mobile phone data network (GPRS) which is ideally suited to the low data usage of card transactions.

WinTI / BatchPro

If you are using WinTI or BatchPro for authorisation then you will need communications hardware in order to connect to the bank systems and obtain an authorisation. Supported methods are PSTN (standard telephone dial up) using a modem, ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) using an ISDN terminal adaptor or X.25 using an X.25 card/pad.
