Companies Team Up to Release ATM Cellular Wireless Modem
Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. and Symstream Americas, Inc. announce their SocketModem SS embedded cellular wireless modem. Designed to reduce ATM fleet management cost on Symstream enabled GSM/3G networks, the Model MTSMC-G1-SS cellular wireless modem incorporates Multi-Tech's cellular wireless hardware and Symstream's data transfer protocol that is fully supported by Symstream's management and gateway system. The modem offers flexibility and connectivity for ATM terminals, kiosks and POS terminals since it provides connectivity throughout the carrier's larger GSM (voice) wireless network as distinct from their packet data network. The modem is plug-compatible with the Multi-Tech dial-up SocketModem currently used in many ATMs in the USA marketplace, allowing a simple upgrade to this wireless modem. An external model is also planned supporting Ethernet, RS-232 and USB interfaces.
