Gaming Laboratories International (GLI), in partnership with NYCE, is proud to announce the recent installation of the award-winning and patented GLI Link® at NYCE’s facilities in Mexico, further solidifying GLI’s commitment to the Latin American Region.
“As technology has advanced, and now that systems are providing electronic funds transfer and TITO, interoperability is more important than ever, and more and more jurisdictions are requiring this type of testing,” said GLI Director of Latin American Development Karen Sierra-Hughes. “Taking into consideration the growth in the Mexican markets and the various systems being utilized by casinos to better administrate their operations, GLI Link is a natural solution for system and gaming suppliers to take advantage of a testing environment where the communication among their products can be verified.”
This installation will be placed in the Mexico City IT-Cluster, where NYCE has a very functional office with enough infrastructure to serve the entire country throughout a high speed connection, embedded security and 24x7x365 high quality service.
NYCE engineers have been trained by GLI’s experts and will have continuous direct contact with GLI to support and fix any kind of trouble.
This is the second GLI Link environment available for the Latin American Region. The first installation was completed and is available now in GLI’s South America laboratory in La Plata, Argentina.
“With a wide range of international suppliers providing products in this jurisdiction, GLI Link is a perfect solution, eliminating the problem of shipping devices and systems to locations around the world. GLI Link operates remotely, meaning there is no shipping of devices, saving time and money. Further, GLI Link creates a ‘real world’ environment that provides a sense of security and lowers support costs for equipment providers around the globe,” said Salvador Sanchez, NYCE Director of Operations.
With GLI Link, suppliers can test against specific casino configurations in their local lab, in their own time zone. With GLI Link, there is no more waiting for devices to be packed, shipped, received and tested, streamlining the entire process and speeding time to market.
GLI prides itself on establishing complete testing centers, not just offices, and GLI Link adds to the capabilities of each GLI testing lab.
With GLI Link, interoperability testing can be performed on any game with virtually any system from any GLI lab in any time zone, in Asia, Europe, Latin America or anywhere on the globe, and GLI can interface devices to a variety of systems that are operating in any major casino in the world.

GLI will continue o work closely with regulators to help regulations remain current and with suppliers to make their testing and certification process as efficient and cost-effective as possible.
