Hughes Network Systems is now certified as a Verifone Managed Network Service Provider (MNSP). This certification enables the company to offer Verifone Point of Sale (POS) retail customers a transition to a Payment Card Industry (PCI)-compliant solution compatible with outdoor Europay, MasterCard, and Visa (EMV) chip-card readers, replacing the discontinued Enhanced Zone Router (EZR).

“Retail petroleum customers can’t afford any downtime on their POS systems,” said Hughes North America Senior Vice President (SVP) of Sales and Marketing Dan Rasmussen. “With this certification, Hughes completed a rigorous vetting process with Verifone to ensure existing and new HughesOn Managed Services customers can transition easily to a PCI-compliant solution replacing the discontinued EZR — and with the assurance that it will work seamlessly and affordably with their existing infrastructure.”

As part of the fully turnkey HughesON offerings, the EZR replacement solution is also EMV-compatible,  and is under a comprehensive managed service contract.
