CALGARY, Alberta, Nov. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- E-Debit Global Corporation ("E-Debit") (OTCQB: WSHE) announces today the transition of its Digital Communication network to enhance and add the next level of security and redundancy to its Financial Switching Operations.
"Over the past 8 months WSI which is our electronic payment processing unit has been working with our communication partners Shaw Communications, Bell Communications and TELUS to transition our Communication network in order to expand our security and redundancy," advised WSI Chief Operating Officer Sonja Dreyer.
"Our WSI business unit offers debit and credit payment processing solutions and connectivity to the Canadian Interac Network and Credit Facilitators. Our initial introduction of our ATM network to our fiber communication system has been reviewed and to meet our future requirements with the role out of GROUP-LINK we moved to expand our redundancy to ensure we have the best of industry communication connectivity.
"These enhancements are end to end and includes the move of our data centres both in the US and Canada to enhanced PCI compliant facilities. Our experience to date has met the challenge of the new requirements related to chip based card product processing and EMV protocols and at the same time has increased speed of transaction processing by a minimum of 25%.
"Once we conclude our transition we will be able to expand our focus towards our custom payment solutions across a wide range of communication protocols including private-label, travel & entertainment and fleet cards as well as expanding our reach within the Canadian ATM and POS marketplace with contracted switching services to the Canadian ISO ("Independent Sales Organizations") being offered by GROUP-LINK.
"With this transition we are now in total control of our communication protocols and significantly reduced our reliance on non-affiliated contracted managed services to connect, operated and service our switching platform and to give our guarantee of the best of industry transaction processing in the most secure, stable, reliable and high performance environment to our existing client base and our future ISO potentials which we are going to aggressively pursue," Ms. Dreyer stated.
