Communications

Communication with the network is required to process transactions and the ATM operator has three choices with CHC.

(1)Regular phone line, (2) cellular or (3) Internet.

  Note that all ATMs we sell have standard modems and are configured for dial up communications.

(1) Most commonly a basic regular analogue phone line is used. Dedicated for the ATM with no special features such as caller ID, call waiting etc.

(2) A cellular modem is another option. The unit tricks the ATM into thinking it has dial tone and sends a secure encrypted signal over Rogers Wireless Network.

The Celular modem costs $350 vs Bells' new line installation costs of about $216. The cellular charges are a flat $35 per month vs Bell's $50+/- for business lines so the economics of cellular pan out in about a year. The added attraction is the flexibility of not having to wait for bell to arrange installation, no wires to run and you can move the ATM around with ease.  You do not need to set up a Rogers account or apply for credit approval of any kind. The monthly charge can be conveniently deducted from your surcharge revenue. There are no long term contracts and service can be cancelled on one month's notice.

(3) The third communication option is the whIP  internet modem. The whIP unit tricks the ATM into thinking it has dial tone and sends a secure encrypted signal over your existing high speed internet connection. This provides the fastest transaction processing and the lowest monthly connection fees around $20. The whIP Internet modem costs $245 and requires a high speed internet account you set up with your choice of internet provider. This is useful for locations that have internet already.
