M2M simplifies mobile point-of-sale payment process



  • SIA is a leading international player in debit/credit card processing, collections and payments
  • it wanted to launch a new transaction collection service and ensure visibility, control and security of SIM data
  • SIA needed a partner with integrated M2M and network (fixed and mobile) capabilities
  • we implemented a mobile M2M point-of-sale terminal solution with global roaming connectivity services and dedicated access point name to collect SIM traffic and forward it to the Orange MPLS network
  • this, along with a Web-based M2M portal, enables the management of up to 60,000 terminals
  • this fully-integrated, secure, flexible and redundant solution provides real-time visibility and control of SIM management operations as well as enhanced security
“Thanks to the Orange solution, from today we are able to further simplify communications between merchants and banks by offering payments via mobile POS terminals at the continental level. This reconfirms SIA’s role as a single partner in Europe, managing the last mile of payments, regardless of the type of connectivity employed or the country where the transaction is originated.”
Andrea Galeazzi, Network Services Division Director, SIA

issues and challenges


SIA is a European leader in the design, creation and management of technology infrastructures and services for financial and central institutions, corporates and public administration bodies, in the areas of payments, e-money, network services and capital markets. With headquarters located in Milan, Italy, SIA has 1,450+ employees working in a network of seven companies that operate in over 40 countries. In 2013, it managed 2.7 billion card payments and 2.2 billion credit transfers and collections, 28.6 billion trading and post-trading transactions and carried 293.3 terabytes of data on its certified network.

SIA was looking to grow its payment processing services to banks and merchants by simplifying communication via an increasing number of remote/mobile point-of-sale (POS) terminals. The payment traffic generated by the wireless POS terminals would need to be delivered securely and reliably to the authorization systems of banks, terminal operators and other acquirers.
