Application: Secure Transmission of Video and Data at Global Bank’s ATMs
Lantronix Solution: Lantronix E210 Series Routers
Challenge: Securely Transmit Video and Data 24/7 in Real Time
Argus Secure Technology needed to find a way to securely transmit video and data in real time from a global bank’s ATMs to the bank’s central control station on a 24/7 uninterrupted basis. It was challenged to find a reliable, secure and durable router that would meet the real-time video requirements of its ATM security solution. The router had to enable the entire video and data stream to be transmitted over the bank’s secure Virtual Private Network (VPN), not the unsecured public Internet. It also had to meet the banking industry’s strict regulations.
Solution: Lantronix E210 Reliable, Secure and Durable Router
To provide 24/7 live video streaming and data transition at the bank’s 1,000+ ATM locations, they chose the Lantronix E210 router. Video and sensor data are transmitted in real-time to a central control center via the E210 high-speed router over the bank’s VPN as part of the bank’s advanced ATM security solution which comprises an IP camera for video surveillance as well as motion detection sensors.
Results: Lantronix Routers Deliver a Secure, Reliable, Regulatory-Compliant Solution
With the Lantronix E210 routers, the bank can monitor its 1,000+ ATMs on a real-time basis. Receiving the video and data in real-time enables the command center to detect any malicious intent and report to regional security officers for rapid action.
At each ATM location, the Lantronix E210 router quickly transfers video at high data rates and also transfers data from the alarm panel, showing when the outer door is open or closed as well as when the cash door is open or closed.
- Quickly deliver market-ready solution
- Provide technology that helps contain development costs
- Deliver a powerful yet affordable and secure device
