EFTEX, part of the Banktech Group, has outsourced its entire wireless ATM communications network in Australia to Transaction Network Services (TNS) in a multi-year, multi-million dollar deal.
The deployment covers more than 1600 wireless ATMs and leverages TNS’ latest technology for automated boarding integration and in-field signal strength testing for installation teams.
It is the first deployment of ATMs using 4G to go live since TNS introduced 4G network support for TNSLink for ATMs across Australia and the Asia Pacific region a few months ago.
EFTEX is also to use TNS’ multiport solution that allows for multiple devices to be operated from a single point of broadband access.
EFTEX general manager, Paul Stewart, said TNS was an early contender and stood out during the tender process because of its adaptable feature-rich TNSLink for ATMs solution, PCI DSS credentials and knowledgeable local team.“We chose to partner with TNS after an extensive market analysis. TNS proved to be the most experienced provider for ATM communications in Australia and could offer a creative commercial model that fit our business needs,” he said.
