How Does POS Protect Work?

POS Protect is the ultimate failover solution dedicated solely to supporting retailers, restaurants, and other vendor’s point-of-sale devices. Simple to install and use, POS Protect will ensure you can continue serving your customers even during network outages.


Connect the Device to Your POS Terminal

POS Protect hardware is compact and easy to set up. Simply follow the included instructions to connect the modem between your existing internet connection and your POS device.


Dual-Carrier SIMs

Our technology has two SIMs installed into the device, ready to use out of the box. POS Protect will give users a theoretical 100% uptime for your point-of-sale device.


Wireless Failover Protection

Wireless internet is the premier option for POS failover solutions. Wired internet connections may fail when providers share lines a mile down the road. LTE connections avoid this issue.

All standard point-of-sale terminal payments, including debit, credit, and NFC phone payments, can be processed using POS Protect during an outage.

The device has 2 modes of operation. One is NAT, and one is IP Passthrough. By default, the box operates in NAT mode, which results in the fastest failover time and minimizes the impact of an outage. In some cases, IP Passthrough may be required for interoperability with existing POS Systems (please contact us if this is required).
