How Long Does It Take to Install Secure Wireless Ethernet at Your Fuel Pump?

If you’re a fuel center owner, you may be putting off installing wireless Ethernet at your pumps because it appears time-consuming, expensive, and difficult. Luckily, this couldn’t be further from the truth. A wireless Ethernet connection offers a quick and easy way to upgrade your fuel pumps for EMV compliance, while taking only around five minutes per fuel dispenser.

Replacing a Wired Fuel Pump Connection is a Hassle

In the past, most fuel centers incorporated standard twisted-pair connections to the fuel dispensers, designed to support low bandwidth communication. That meant installing Ethernet in fuel dispensers was a major construction project that involved digging up concrete in the forecourt of the center in order to do extensive rewiring. Besides being hugely inconvenient, this process had a major financial impact due to construction labor costs and fuel center downtime. Worst of all, serial conversion relied on old two-wire cabling that used existing wiring as part of the installation, leaving the security and reliability of the results in doubt. It’s a solution that is simply no longer designed to meet the requirements of a high-speed, wireless world.

A Better Solution: Wireless Ethernet

Wireless Ethernet at the fuel pumps is UL 1238 certified and an attractive alternative to outdated wired connections. You can upgrade a pump to a secure wireless Ethernet connection in just five minutes, with no hassle or construction costs. The switch is cloud manageable, which means it can be accessed from anywhere on multiple devices. Wireless Ethernet was created for HD media solutions, so it supplies a bandwidth of 300 Mbps, more than adequate to meet a fuel center’s needs. The network is fast and reliable, so fuel center personnel and customers never have to worry about inconvenient delays during payment transactions.

Wireless Ethernet Makes an EMV Upgrade Simple

A wireless Ethernet conversion also delivers a simple way for fuel center owners to accomplish a simple EMV upgrade. EMV, the global technology standard used to authenticate transactions from smart cards equipped with computer chips, is required for all pay at the pump transactions by October 2020. Converting to EMV readers also ensures PCI compliance. PCI is an encrypted protocol used to protect a customer’s credit card information and reduce the possibility of identity theft, while also promoting optimal performance.

The deadline for fuel centers to meet EMV compliance is looming. But making the conversion doesn’t have to be difficult or costly. AvaLAN provides secure and reliable wireless solutions for EMV pump payment via wireless Ethernet. Trust the experts at AvaLAN for a wireless Ethernet conversion that is quick, reliable and secure.

No digging. No wires. No hassle.
