Definition

ASTREX is the payment industry’s most powerful real-time payments simulator for any Issuer, Acquirer, or Third-Party Processor that wants to test their payment infrastructure host systems.

Change is the only constant in the cards and payments industry. Your payment system must keep up with customer expectations while staying compliant with the latest standards. You need to get more new products to market faster than ever before.

As an Acquirer or Third Party Processor you want to test an acquirer network’s capability to generate correct messaging properly. As an Issuer you want to test an issuer host system’s ability to process authorization messages. A next generation test and validation environment is key to getting ahead of the competition. ASTREX supports you in achieving your test objectives for both acquiring and issuing host systems.

With ASTREX you can independently emulate every payment network scenario and transaction type in an end-to-end simulated environment. This single test environment can be made available to every participant in your product development lifecycle.
