X2nSat to Use New POS Access Point for Mobile Point-of-Sale Sites with 100% North America Coverage
Petaluma, CA — July 28, 2016 — Global satellite communications solutions provider X2nSat announces its latest point of sale (POS) solution in North America, offering mobile POS connectivity for even the most remote locations. The advanced POS access point boasts high reliability and coverage that extends to even the most remote sites.
Understanding that a loss of connectivity means retailers are unable to collect money, X2nSat acknowledges the drawbacks of terrestrial and cellular connections. Even with “store and forward” features, if a credit card is bad, the retailer is responsible for the loss in revenue. When connections are down, debit cards are not an option as the customer’s bank cannot be contacted to hold the amount needed for the transaction. Oftentimes in rural, isolated locations cellular and traditional wireline connections are not available at all.
X2nSat announced in April its partnership with Thuraya to offer their portable L-band terminal in the U.S. Adapting this into a POS access point for transactional communications is not surprising for the innovative company, as the terminal offers exceptionally efficient bandwidth usage, low-latency IP networking, and high levels of security. The access point’s portability and always on connectivity enables real-time, secure, two-way communications anywhere. “We find the POS access point is a perfect fit for vendors at outdoor events, remote trade shows, and concerts. With X2nSat’s reliable L-band connectivity we can bring dependable performance to areas where existing systems are either overloaded or inoperable,” shares Garrett Hill, CEO of X2nSat.
X2nSat also offers fixed POS solutions utilizing a small antenna located at each retail location. Offering easy installation and integration with a retailer’s current equipment, X2nSat’s always-on connectivity completes transactions in 2-5 seconds. Says Tim Aboudara, Head of Sales at X2nSat, “Our fixed-site solutions are designed for the owner of the remote ski resort, or the gas station chain servicing primarily rural locations. Whether as their primary or backup connection, companies need the assurance that their transactions are being completed securely and quickly.”
X2nSat will be showcasing the POS access point at RetailNOW 2016 in Grapevine, Texas August 1-3 at Booth 138.
