Kabira Real-Time Card and Payment Processing Solutions Support Rapid Growth and Evolution of Electronic Payments

    San Francisco, CA. (ots) - Kabira Technologies Inc., provider of the Infrastructure Switch┬Ö software for high-volume, real-time transactions, announced today that it has released commercial grade enhancements to its core volume switch architecture that support payment authorization pre-processing, message gateway functions, intelligent fraud management, real-time risk management and enable very-high volumes exceeding fifty thousand messages per second on standard UNIX system hardware from Sun and HP.          "Electronic payment transaction volumes are increasing rapidly due to industry consolidation and the advent of new delivery channels," said David Marshall, vice president corporate development for Kabira. "In order for growth to continue, card and non-card payments must become as reliable as hard cash, with more security and convenience. Consumers and merchants have come to expect and demand fast response times as well as consistent service. It is essential that payment transaction processing systems support high availability, scalability, and reliability. At the same time, revenues-per-transaction are declining, and pressure exists to optimize IT spending and reduce costs by using new technology. Card and payment processing solutions from Kabira Technologies enhance real-time authorization systems and can process payment transactions from any delivery channel, reliably 24 hours a day. We are able to augment systems for credit and debit cards in addition to newer forms of electronic payment and contactless payments."          Services are Evolving: Trends in card and non-card payments include: new switching center technologies; volume increases that dictate augmentation or upgrades of data centers; new fraud and risk systems require low-level (close to the network) logic; smaller transaction sizes require lower cost systems; the need to add 'closed loop' value to 'open loop' networks; differentiated global services; and micro-payments models are growing as consumers migrate away from cash. In order to succeed, card and payment processing solutions must:          -  Support massive increases in volumes     -  Significantly lower the cost-per-transaction     -  Support high-availability and constant-on requirements     -  Ensure that transaction processing is secure and reliable     -  Provide access to data across multiple systems     -  Support faster time-to-market for new products and services     -  Allow for augmentation to existing legacy systems

    Solution highlights:
    
    Kabira's card and payment processing solutions allow providers to
offer new Real-Time Financial Services and extend their existing
platforms as more sophisticated services are planned for
introduction.
    
    The Kabira Infrastructure Switch supports:

    -  Real-time message parsing and matching
    -  Support volumes exceeding fifty thousands of
         transactions-per-second
    -  Reliability (99.999%) and constant-on availability
    -  Rapid integration of existing legacy platforms, including
         low-level hardware
    -  Hides complexity of interfaces from application
