PRAGUE, Hypercom Global Partners Summit, May 30,2007 (www.AllPayNews.com) -- Hypercom Corporation (NYSE: HYC) today announced the expansion of its Optimum family of 32-bit multi-application electronic payment terminals with a new global countertop platform featuring the highest security, largest memory and broadest feature set of any countertop device family of its kind. The new PCI PED-approved Optimum T4200 family will be available in three EMV and three non-EMV models, including a dial only model, Ethernet/SSL with dial backup and wireless GSM/GPRS connectivity also with dial backup. The new products can be used in either merchant-facing or hand-over payment environments to meet the varying requirements of global merchant markets.

The six Optimum T4200 models share the same compact form factor including a 19-key keypad layout. They also each offer faster transaction processing, a higher-resolution display and a faster modem than competitive units. They join a full array of high-performance Optimum countertop, multi-lane, wireless and portable terminals that have been adopted by leading banks, retailers and independent sales organizations around the world since Hypercom introduced its first 32-bit Optimum product in 2004.
