PCI (Payment card) Network

A specialized wired network is provided to connect devices receiving payment card (credit or debit) data. It is available on main and west campus. For  payment card  PinPads in other locations, a cellular PinPad  is required. Regular Wired Network connections may not be used for transmitting payment card information, because they do not meet PCI security requirements.
