The next generation Virtual PC Center (VPCC) will be on display at the NEC Computers stand (E90) which will showcase NEC's latest desktop VPCC terminal, the US110, and the new ultra-compact mobile thin client, the TCM270. The VPCC is NEC's fully integrated virtualisation offering for fixed or mobile PCs and is ideal for an education environment. The many benefits of VPCC include large power savings, increased functionality, cost-effectiveness and enhanced manageability of IT systems.
NEC's VPCC solution allows hundreds of users to work on "virtual PCs" that are connected to a centralised server through a small terminal that has no moving parts, consumes 77% less power than conventional PCs and can be mounted on the back of a monitor to maximise desk space. The US110 also includes accelerated multimedia to provide users with enhanced use of multimedia applications. The end-user experience is as close to that of a conventional PC as possible, whilst enabling the centralised management of hundreds of workstations from a single remote server. A particularly important factor for the education market is that the desktop terminal is low-cost, does not store any information in it and will not work as a standalone unit, so it will only function if it is connected to its server.
