MasterCard BIN Expansion for Modem Processing

If you are processing credit with a DataCap modem, you may need to swap, reprogram or purchase a new modem. First, determine if you are using an IPTran, DialTran, or DataTran model modem.

IPTran Modems

If you are using an IP Tran:

  • Send DRB® In-Bay Solutions an email with your site and modem information.
  • DRB will reply to your email with a screen shot of your processing information within three business days.
  • Please respond to the email, confirming that the processing information is correct.
  • DRBwill send you an RMA /Work Order number if you would like to have your modem Reprogrammed or Swapped.  You also have the option of purchasing a new modem.  See below for an overview of your options.

* Updating your IP Tran software to support the MasterCard BIN expansion will also resolve the upgrade required to support industry changes to security protocols for IP-based (Internet) transactions.

DialTran Modems

If you are using a DialTran, please contact your Distributor to upgrade to Internet processing.  Effective 2/20/17, DRB no longer offers dial processing.  Swaps are available while supplies last.

DataTran Modems

If you are using a DataTran, the software is not able to be upgraded and the modem is not PCI compliant.  Your modem is not available to be Reprogrammed or Swapped.  To accept the MasterCard 2-series BIN numbers, you need to purchase a new modem through your Unitec authorized Distributor or Manufacturer.
