IGEL delivers the broadest range of thin clients supporting Citrix XenDesktop

Reading, UK - April 30, 2008 - IGEL Technology, the world's third largest thin client vendor, today announced the broadest range of thin client models supporting the important Citrix XenDesktop(tm) virtualization standard. With all of its 22 models now supporting Citrix XenDesktop, IGEL's unique digital services approach allows organizations to offer the best user experience combined with robust desktop resilience and powerful remote management.

The IGEL Technology range includes traditional desktop designs, PC upgrade cards, 17" and 19" LCD integrated units, wireless tablets and quad screen units. The wide variety of choice allows organizations of all types to deploy the Citrix XenDesktop virtualization solution to almost any part of the business, including office workers, mobile users, space constrained point-of-sale areas and multi-screen environments such as dealing rooms.

"The arguments for virtualizing PCs are becoming overwhelming," said Dirk Dördelmann, technical director, IGEL Technology. "Applications can now be migrated to the data center without compatibility issues. The access device choice is so broad that organizations can place them almost anywhere, and the process of deployment is no more complex than plugging in a telephone. IGEL offers the end user a thin client experience that is just like a PC but without the hassles, and we are excited to now offer this capability in conjunction with our long-term partner Citrix."

IGEL's Universal Desktop design delivers additional benefits to IT administrators and end-users because organizations are not forced to host all applications on the virtual desktop and deliver it using one protocol. The flexibility of the IGEL approach allows organizations to pick and choose the best digital services to deliver a true PC experience, including web browser, Java, SAP GUI, PDF, terminal emulation and VoIP. This also provides desktop resilience if the virtual PC connection should be lost, for example, users can access email via the local web client or SAP via the native SAP GUI.

The final component of IGEL's solution is its Remote Management Suite. This software is bundled free with every IGEL Universal Desktop and allows the terminal to automatically connect to its Citrix infrastructure and be remotely managed over a WAN with no scripting and minimal network impact. This allows a Citrix desktop to be "drop shipped" to a user and set up within five minutes by simply connecting the power, network, monitor, mouse and keyboard. Everything else is automatic.

IGEL Technology's range of Citrix XenDesktop compatible thin clients will be on display at the upcoming Citrix Synergy event in Houston, Texas from May 20-23, 2008; and the Citrix iForum08 event in Edinburgh, Scotland, from June 9-11, 2008.
