Connecting vending through 4G technology

Optimise vending revenues through the flexibility of cellular communications – secure, resilient, cost effective and immediate

Vending technology has changed. Today the focus is on immediate two-way information for management of stock, monitoring of trends, secure payment and machine telemetry – to make sure vending owners are aware of faults, breakdowns and likely solutions. So whether for food, drinks, consumables or even new markets such as reverse vending (recycling), the need for real-time data has never been more important. The power 4G connectivity is now coming to the fore in terms of its flexibility – delivering high bandwidth data when required, securely, competitively and with minimal set-up.

Wireless Logic’s vending connectivity options give users the broadest choice of secure IoT tariffs combined with fit-for-purpose routers to ensure resilient data transfer. Whether working directly with vending machine OEMs, or with systems integrators/solution providers, we can jointly develop connectivity only, or connectivity and hardware packages to put your assets online.

Our router solutions enable remote capabilities for checking live connection and rebooting of associated hardware within a vending cabinet. With options for working in ‘extreme’ environments where vending machinery is located outside or within industrial environments, routers can enable connectivity where fixed lines are not available. Solutions are further enhanced by the router’s own management platform which can cap data usage to ensure costs do not spiral through misuse or machine error. With multiple ports, single, dual SIM or multi-SIM variants and three-year warranty on a number of models, advanced vending technology can now consolidate connectivity for telemetry, stock management, service information, digital advertising and more, all through one dedicated router.
