GRAPEVINE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cybera, a leading managed service provider, in conjunction with Shell Oil today announced that Cybera's Wireless Broadband network connectivity solutions are approved for use within the Shell Coolband program. Shell's Coolband program provides a set of approved network connectivity options for Shell branded payment solutions. Now any Shell branded store can access Shell's payment processing solutions through Cybera's managed Wireless Broadband services. As the only wireless broadband solutions approved for use in the Coolband program, Cybera's fully managed services are deployed in the c-store environment to meet three critical areas of need: rapid deployment for store grand openings, primary network connectivity, and diverse-routed broadband backup.
"When we considered Cybera's wireless products for the Coolband program we focused on PCI compliance and reliability. Our goal is to ensure a fast, secure and consistent payment experience for customers of Shell branded locations. Our jobbers basically want fast deployment of a dependable broadband solution and that's exactly what Cybera has delivered," said Scott Taylor, Wholesale Technology Advisor, with Shell Oil.

The simple yet secure nature of the Wireless Broadband products help manage the complexity of the application environment often found in the c-store. Beyond Shell branded payment options, virtually all other applications in the store environment can leverage the Wireless Broadband connection including: non-branded credit and PIN debit payment cards, gift and loyalty cards, tank monitoring, Point of Sale (POS) system and back office application support, digital signage or media delivery, self service kiosks, digital video, environmental control and many others. Cybera's Wireless Broadband solutions are based on 3G wireless network infrastructure for nationwide coverage, are PCI compliant, and fully managed.
