BLE Mobile I/O

Now there’s another convenient way for casino gamers to play thanks to JCM’s new BLE Mobile I/O technology, the latest innovation from the engineers at JCM Global.. BLE is an acronym for “Bluetooth Low Energy,” and the BLE Mobile I/O device is an internal module that enables contactless transactions at any EGM.

Installation is simple: the BLE Mobile I/O is plugged into the USB port of JCM’s Peripheral Network Adapter (PNA) unit inside the EGM. Once connected, mobile applications developed to interface with BLE Mobile I/O allow players to use their mobile device to securely identify their EGM location, conduct transactions, receive and act on marketing and promotions, verify their wagering ID, and more.

To complete a transaction, information is communicated from the user’s mobile device to the PNA through JCM’s FUZION system.

JCM’s BLE Mobile I/O has a wealth of benefits. Because it’s Bluetooth-based, it enables connection with any mobile device, and 2D barcode pairing provides an easy path for installation. Any application can interface with BLE Mobile I/O through secure APIs, plus applications can notify patrons of available promotions, expiring player funds, or specific events. Additionally, because it’s mobile-based, it allows for location-based services, such as geolocation.

The BLE Mobile I/O is system and EGM-agnostic, so it is compatible with any EGM that has JCM’s iVIZION or UBA Pro bill validator, GEN5 printer, and FUZION technology.

The BLE Mobile I/O also improves compliance with enhanced KYC and AML capabilities. It allows for easy identity verification for every financial transaction, and any suspicious activity or money laundering activity is easily traced back to any user account.
