SAN JOSE, Calif. — VeriFone Holdings Inc. announced an international marketing alliance with D-Link to foster the adoption of Wi-Fi enhanced electronic transactions solutions.
According to a news release, the two companies will collaborate to provide merchants with expertise and installation assistance in establishing Wi-Fi based transaction networks.
"To set up a small Wi-Fi network is easy, as millions of consumers have demonstrated, but when it comes to setting up a private network with multiple access points in an area such as a mall that already has public networks, then merchants are looking for expertise and experience to ensure their needs are met," said William Nichols, VeriFone vice president.
VeriFone and D-Link have teamed up on several projects in Latin America and Asia, including the world's first Wi-Fi payment solution, installed in the San Marino Mall in Guayaquil, Ecuador in 2003.
According to a news release, MICROS will resell VeriFone's customer-facing electronic payment solutions, including the new Vx 670 mobile payment system fully integrated with MICROS RES 4.0.
