Gemalto, a provider of digital security products and services, is expanding its MagIC3 range of Point-Of-Sale (POS) terminals. The new MagIC3 product is a wireless payment solution, requiring no extra subscription nor additional communication fees and it is light and compact.

MagIC3 W-1, a part of Gemalto’s MagIC3 product family, incorporates Open&Sec technology running on Linux and delivers convenience in restaurants and outdoor retail outlets.

The MagIC3 product line leverages internet protocol (IP) technology and ensures high-level security in an open environment. It features universal serial bus (USB) connections for instant plugging of peripherals such as check and barcode readers, WiFi dongles or electronic cash registers, making it a flexible payment solution. The MagIC3 W-1 terminal comes equipped with an integrated Ethernet broadband connection to offer speed and secure transactions.

Frederic Deman, senior vice president of e-payment terminals at Gemalto, said: “MagIC3 W-1 offers mobility, speed and ease-of-use that make it really convenient for retailers to present the terminal to their customers. Our customers have started deploying MagIC3 W-1 and we already received very positive reactions. Retailers using the Ethernet broadband connection expressed strong satisfaction with the transaction speed.”
