Total Control® STG (Secure Transaction Gateway) provides secure transaction transport between dial-up Point Of Sales (POS) transaction systems and payment processor authorization servers. Dial-up POS systems are linked with authorization servers capable of transporting millions of transactions per day with support for TPDU, ISO8583 and custom transaction protocols.
The Total Control STG is a high density transaction processing gateway that consolidates transaction protocol handling, transaction routing, high speed download, multiprotocol support and network routing within a compact rack-mounted system.
Key benefits include:
Modem Optimization – Fast-train protocol support enables lower rate modems to communicate with higher baud rates. Fast train reduces modem hand shake time by up to 75% and speeds connection time to less than a second.
Compact Capacity – Up to (8) E1 or T1 spans optionally expandable to (16) E1 or T1 spans in a 2U rack mount form factor. Can linearly expand E1/T1 capacity with additional servers.
Redundancy and Load Sharing – Can be configured for redundancy or load sharing between the E1/T1 modem ports and PSTN. In the event of a specific modem span failure the platform can switch to the redundant pair. Additional E1/T1 modem spans may be used for load sharing.
Reduce Traffic – Appears to Point of Sale (POS) terminals as a host, but communicates to the host with fewer packets than if the POS terminal(s) connected directly to the host. As a result, network congestion and host response processing is reduced, allowing the host to handle more calls per day.
PSTN + IP – Maps Dialed Number Identification Service (DNIS) digits from the PSTN into specific Host Servers for IP connectivity to specific TCP host and port numbers. This allows transaction processing centers to use the rich addressing capabilities of PSTN and IP networks to route transactions to different IP addresses depending on the transaction destinations.
SIP Trunks for Payment Transactions – Total Control STG system supports the handling of SIP trunks with the ability to route the transaction traffic originating from regular PSTN based POS terminals. SIP trunks connecting traditional dial networks to packet networks enables it to be highly useful for payment transaction networks with high bandwidth packet networks enabling the transmission of data to be swift and more accurate along with the ability to complete transactions faster. Along with uncompressed codec of G.711 to ensure the data integrity of the data from Dial POS terminals sending the transaction data and with adequate QoS (Quality of Service) being ensured for data integrity, Total Control STG system facilitates an economical evolution for Dial transactions to the packetized networks using SIP trunks.
