Connect the Dots

Product: GLI Link
Manufacturer: Gaming Laboratories International

Gaming Laboratories International is offering regulators and suppliers a way to do business smarter and more efficiently with GLI Link, a proprietary new technology that allows for remote interoperability testing of games and systems.

As games and systems continue to become more intertwined, interoperability is more important than ever to operators, regulators and suppliers. But before now, testing for interoperability required devices and systems to be in the same room with each other, so they could be wired together. This required devices to be shipped all over the world, which can be cumbersome, expensive and delay time to market.

GLI Link solves the problem by connecting manufacturers’ products and operators’ systems, expanding interoperability testing to every GLI lab. With GLI Link, interoperability testing can be performed on any game with virtually any system from any GLI lab in any time zone.

Because GLI Link operates remotely over the internet, devices no longer have to be shipped around the world, saving both time and money. With GLI Link, suppliers based anywhere in the world can test for interoperability against systems that are used in casinos around the globe.

GLI Link can operate from any GLI lab, which enables suppliers to test against specific casino configurations in their local lab and time zone. The entire process is monitored by GLI’s worldwide team of experts, so if, for example, a device is in Macau and a system is in Las Vegas, GLI engineers in both labs personally monitor the test to ensure accuracy.

GLI Link is the latest in a series of proprietary tools exclusively developed and used by GLI, including GLIAccess, a web-powered database of submissions, certifications and revocations; GLI Verify, a hand-held verification tool for regulators; and GLI University, a continuing education program for regulators.
