Lantronix works with Diebold to eliminate
leased lines on some ATMs
IRVINE, Calif. -- Lantronix Inc. (Nasdaq:LTRX), a developer of Device
Server Technology which enables electronic devices to be accessed
and managed over the Internet or other networks using TCP/IP
protocol, is working with Diebold Incorporated to develop networking
technology which enables financial institutions to link their ATMs
with IT networks.
Using Lantronix's technology, high transaction volume ATMs will no
longer need to be connected to leased lines, saving banks the high
monthly surcharge of long distance network connections.
"Lantronix's technology has allowed us to integrate legacy networking
systems with new, faster and more reliable networking protocols," said
Bill Aitken, Diebold vice president of systems integration and
services. "For our customers, this means the end of incompatible
hardware and an entirely cohesive network at a reduced cost."
