The EMVO Gateway is an alternative means of connecting to the EU Hub (alternative for developing a Direct Connection). The Direct Connection will suit many OBP’s, however it may be complex to realise.
The EMVO Gateway provides a lower effort route to connection, using typically understood techniques and is aimed at those OBPs who want to participate in pilot programs but do not yet have a Direct Connection established, or smaller OBP’s who have no need for the Direct Connection because their volumes of batches are much lower. It’s highly manual in operation, so not well suited to automated processes.
However, it is a very effective means for connecting easily with the EU Hub and wider EMVS. Please find an illustration, to visualize the concept, here.
