Technology Solutions for Point-of-Sale Applications

There are billions of credit card transactions in the U.S. each year. In fact, most customers use plastic when they buy goods and services – even for small, everyday items. To enable the modern consumer to buy from you, your business needs to be setup to process all types of payments. And the foundation for effective point-of-sale systems is reliable Internet connectivity – whether you are processing payments in store or online.

By processing electronic payment transactions quickly and efficiently, you improve your productivity and cash flow, and create a more enjoyable experience for your customers. FairPoint Communications addresses the point-of-sale needs of today’s retailers with a range of business Internet technology solutions, including:

  • High-Speed Internet – Many businesses like to have one Internet connection just to handle point-of-sale transactions and another Internet connection to run the rest of their operations. This helps keep payment processing from slowing down when other devices or applications running over the same Internet connection are also gobbling up bandwidth. For many small businesses, a few megabits are all it takes to effectively run a credit card machine. But FairPoint also offers many higher speeds, up to 1 Gbps in some locations, to process your transactions faster or to complement the Internet connection reserved for payment processing. Plus, we back-up our business Internet solution with 24/7 service and support either by online chat or phone. With our years of experience, our support teams understand how to best deploy Internet solutions best-suited for POS transactions.
  • Ethernet Dedicated Internet Access (E-DIA) – If you need additional bandwidth to run more than just credit card machines or want the peace of mind that comes from having a dedicated connection to our fiber network, we also offer business-class Internet connectivity. Our E-DIA provides a dedicated connection to FairPoint’s resilient fiber network with speeds up to 10 Gbps. By ensuring symmetrical bandwidth for both uploads and downloads, you gain greater cost efficiency and reliability.
  • Managed Wireless LAN – Want to process customer payments through a mobile device? FairPoint can provide a robust, reliable and secure wireless signal throughout your business location. Using a laptop, tablet or smartphone, you can access the Internet at the same speeds as a hard-wired connection. FairPoint’s scalable network allows connectivity anytime, anywhere, and from any device.

Your customers expect a lot from your business. FairPoint’s advanced business Internet solutions allow you to process customer payments with confidence. Plus, we continually invest in new technologies to extend and enhance our high-speed business Internet capabilities. Contact us to learn more.
