Testing is always important to an organisation's success - within the payments industry it is genuinely mission critical. Iliad supply testing solution, T3, to complement fault-tolerant systems moving them closer to their 100% availability goal.
T3 offers end-to-end coverage for all components of a payment system. From EMV enabled cards through all types of POS and ATMs to the formats supported by the world’s switches, credit card schemes and interchanges. This is provided by a single extendable product which consolidates all protocols, test data and collateral into one single, auditable and highly performant environment.
T3 is used by the Lusis team in testing new developments and installations of TANGO. T3’s single view, from Chip to Clearing, greatly increases the productivity of all testers and offers institutions a low marginal cost when extending the scope of their test system.
TANGO is completely hardware independent and has been deployed on HP-UX, IBM p-series, Linux and Windows. In 2009 however Lusis Payments responded to direct requests by the financial industry to create a credible payments alternative on HP Non Stop.
Working with HP Integrity NonStop servers at the EMEA technical centre, we have demonstrated that the TANGO architecture fits well with the open and modern NonStop software. TANGO fully utilises the power of the NonStop platform, together with its unmatched scalability and reliability, to lower the cost and risk of implementing next generation payments processing architecture.
TANGO is available on the full range of the HP NonStop Integrity product line – including HP Integrity NonStop BladeSystem and the HP Integrity NS2000 family of entry-level servers.
