Triton Dynamic Language (TDL) is the next generation in ATM message format and communications protocol, and TDL is the de facto specification for retail ATMs worldwide.  With customers' needs changing and the demands for more features and transaction types increasing, TDL allows ATMs to better meet the needs of both ATM owners and customers.  Some of the possibilities with TDL include the ability to define screen, receipt, and transaction flow based on a specific customer's card and transaction information; to be able to configure changes to the ATM remotely through the host; and to create custom applications for the ATM without extensive development.

Triton continues working to develop alternative communication methods and communication upgrades for our ATMs. Triton was a pioneer in dial-up ATM technology, allowing retailers the flexibility of purchasing a machine and keeping maintenance costs affordable. The options outlined below are just a few of the cost-effective methods Triton has developed. If the technology is available in your area and is supported by a local processor, these communication alternatives could create a far more efficient ATM network for you. Your Triton Sales Representative will be happy to help you determine the best solution for your area.

Affordable Communication Solutions for your ATM Network

Dial - Up

Triton pioneered the use of dial-up lines to connect lower-volume ATMs; the same technology millions of people around the world use today to connect to the Internet. For dial-up communication, an ATM’s modem dials the phone number of its host computer to facilitate a connection. This method is convenient and in most areas, less expensive than a dedicated leased-line, making it the most common communication method in the off-premise market
