Mako managed network appliances and services are now available to all Sinclair dealers.
ELGIN, IL, February 19, 2019– Mako Networks has signed an exclusive agreement with Sinclair Oil Corporation to deliver PCI-compliant managed network appliances and services to Sinclair dealers nationwide. Dealers will acquire Mako’s services directly from Sinclair.
Sinclair will deploy Mako’s newest 6600-M/LTE appliances. With a sealed, tamper-proof case, no moving parts, and high heat tolerance, the 6600-M is well suited to the tough network environments found at petroleum retailers. Performance advantages over previous models include higher throughput and a dual-SIM LTE module. The Mako solution provides fast failover from broadband service to the Mako’s built-in cellular LTE connection, allowing dealers to maintain full network operation during broadband service outages.
Sinclair dealers with Gilbarco Passport and Verifone Commander POS systems will receive Mako’s manufacturer-certified MNSP services for those systems which allows dealers to eliminate the SZR for Gilbarco Passport systems and the EZR for Verifone installations, simplifying site networks. Additionally, dealers using Gilbarco will no longer need a Micronode when using Mako, speeding up transactions for Passport users.
“We are thrilled to partner with Sinclair Oil to ensure that one of the oldest names in the petroleum industry has the newest and best technology available today,” said Simon Gamble, President, Mako Networks. “Their confidence in the Mako System speaks to its proven security, speed, convenience, and value benefits for large-scale businesses.”
