Eicon Networks Corporation, a worldwide provider of secure Internet connectivity products, announced that Fujitsu Transaction Solutions Inc. is exclusively using Eiconcard C21 wide-area network interface cards to provide secure and reliable connectivity between its Series 8000 family of ATMs and banks’ X.25 telecommunications networks in North America.
Fujitsu, one of the industry’s leading ATM manufacturers, selected the Eiconcard C21 for its durability, reliability and low field-failure rate. In addition, support for Microsoft Windows 2000, the operating system upon which the Series 8000 ATM is based, was also a critical factor in Fujitsu’s selection of the Eiconcard C21.
“We selected Eicon’s C21 WAN cards to ensure fail-safe network connectivity for our line of Web-enabled Series 8000 ATMs,” said Neill F. Collins, Fujitsu’s vice president of financial systems sales. “Eicon’s excellent reputation and track record as a strong global manufacturer of highly reliable WAN solutions have led us to once again purchase Eiconcards, which we had previously used to deliver network connectivity for our Series 7000(TM) ATMs.”
X.25 networks provides services to millions of people every day, as many common applications and devices – ATMs, credit-card authorization systems and airline reservation systems – rely on it as their means of transporting data because it is a reliable transport mechanism. X.25 is known as a reliable service because it guarantees that data is delivered in the same order it was transmitted and is available in almost every part of the world.
“This deal continues to expand our market share in the X.25 WAN communications arena,” said Norbert Cazabat, Eicon’s senior director of sales for the Americas. “It also further strengthens our relationship with Fujitsu, whose leadership in providing transaction systems for the retail and financial industries remains unmatched.”
