NewNet launches addition to AccessGuard mobile and broadband payment processing portfolio

Scaling to meet increasing demand

The new platform, called the AccessGuard 1000 (AG1000), provides enhanced security, performance and scalability for payment and financial processing services, alleges NewNet (view press release). The product is delivered ‘off the shelf’ with Intel servers running Linux in a 1U or 2U form factor. Through specialised hardware accelerators on the server platforms, NewNet claims the AG1000 can scale to “very high rates of simultaneous transactions processed.” The product is designed to provide support for a range of transaction protocols, flexible transaction routing, ease of management and superior analytics and reporting.

Globally, mobile payment transactions continue to grow and portend a much lesser need for cash in the near future,” said Amy Cravens, Senior Analyst of Mobile Payments a t NPD / In Stat. “With transactions projected to exceed USD636 billion in 2016, having a system like the AccessGuard 1000 that can scale to meet increasing demand is a high priority for carriers and payment acquirers.”
