Switch

High performance, real-time authorization switching

As transaction volumes grow and the number of transaction sources and destinations explodes, the pressure on switches is growing.

With Switch from BPC, issuers, acquirers and processors can manage the fast-moving payments landscape and deliver the best levels of service to their customers.

With Switch, you can directly connect external devices such as POS terminals or ATMs and integrate with electronic and mobile payments. Switch includes built-in interfaces for the most common types of ATMs and payment terminals, and international and regional payment networks. In other words, the system is easily adaptable to existing customer infrastructure. It connects readily with online banking systems and interacts with external payment systems providers.
Multiple Deployment Options

Avoiding hardware vendor lock-in, Switch operates on a wide variety of industry platforms and hardware. It can be deployed to replace a legacy switch or work in parallel with existing systems. As all SmartVista modules are developed to fit and work together, Switch can be deployed alongside other modules to provide a complete end-to-end e-payments solution.

Optimised Routing

Switch’s proprietary algorithms optimize the routing of authorization requests. The message format can be quickly changed in accordance with specific requirements. Switch has extensive capabilities for managing payment networks, monitoring their condition and automatically reconnecting in case of problems.

Scalable, Reliable, Adaptable

The solution operates in a wide range of environments, from supporting an individual bank’s standalone ATM / POS network, to interfacing with other domestic and international networks and supporting the running of national switches.
