Remote access to vending machines
More data-driven service offers require stronger networking, higher data transmission rates, standardized interfaces and a higher security standard. Data communication via cellular networks becomes the determining infrastructure.
Stationary vending machines
MC Technologies MRLQ routers are used in many stationary ticket and vending machines or pay-at-the-pump systems. This allows to process payment transactions (credit card debits, etc.) and, for example, to carry out remote maintenance procedures. The routers can be used to make changes to vending machine user interfaces, to alter prices or to display advertising.
Mobile vending machines
The passenger wi-fi systems which may be installed on buses or trains are not secure enough to be used for transmission of customer data and payment information. Devices such as the programmable MC100 are ideal to integrate small ticket vending machines on buses and trains using a secure LTE connection. For such applications, the MC100 is available as a complete device or as an OEM circuit board version.
