Managed Network Service Provider Program (Gilbarco & VeriFone)

As you are now aware, Verifone and Gilbarco have implemented the new Managed Network Service Provider (MNSP) certification program to help sites enable EMV at the dispenser and to provide a more secure remote support and software distribution process.  This move to an MNSP program has been prompted by a requirement from the network brands.  To implement MNSP configuration, sites will be required to remove the end-of-lifed Verifone EZRs and Gilbarco RVO42 zone routers to this newer, more secure technology. 

VeriFone Managed Network Service Provider Program

As announced in December 2018, continued support for outdoor EMV will require the deployment of a Managed Network Service Provider (MNSP) Solution.  VeriFone has been working with each MNSP partner to ensure that the requirements for outdoor EMV are established to streamline the conversion and ongoing support of additional networking requirements for sites installed with VeriFone POS systems.
