Press Release

Wyse Debuts New Thin Computing & Client Virtualization Technology

Delivers full PC functionality on a virtual client

Virtualization Magazine on Ulitzer

Wyse Technology, a provider of thin computing and client virtualization, will be showcasing its latest technology solutions including a new mobile thin client and the latest versions of its provisioning and virtualization software solutions.

BETT 2010 will be a first opportunity to see the new Wyse X90cw ultra-light mobile thin client in action.

With all user data stored safely and securely on central servers, this new product allows teachers and students to gain secure access to their course work and software whenever and wherever they need to inside or outside of school. Like all Wyse thin clients, the Wyse X90cw contributes to meeting carbon reduction targets with lower power consumption and a smaller form factor that reduces manufacturing and end of use disposal impacts on the environment.

On the stand several Wyse X90cw units will be running in a classroom workgroup layout. Stand visitors can enter to win a Wyse X class device every day of the show.

For running IT infrastructure for all sizes of schools and colleges, the latest version of Wyse’s provisioning software, WSM 3.0, delivers full PC functionality on a virtual client, while creating scalable, low-cost and easy to manage architectures.

WSM 3.0 uses distributed architecture scalability combined with the flexibility to run the student environment on Microsoft Server 2003, 2008 or XP Professional, or a Wyse WSM Appliance device. Most important for schools and colleges, WSM centralizes security and data storage in order to keep the system safe.

For thin computing implementations with Citrix, Microsoft and VMware technologies, Wyse will be demonstrating Wyse TCX Suite 4.0, which addresses traditional 'thin client' user experience limitations in one unified software suite. Wyse TCX ensures teachers and students have an end user experience that is as good as or better than a comparable PC experience. Wyse TCX Suite 4.0 includes:

  • Multimedia Acceleration – a technology that streamlines the delivery of the multimedia stream to the local client for a rich playback experience within a thin computing architecture.
  • Flash Acceleration – an innovative technology which extends the capabilities of the remoting protocols for delivering Flash video content using Windows Internet Explorer 7 and Windows Internet Explorer 8, without the need for a Flash player on the local client.
  • Multi-display system – makes virtual desktops and applications multi-monitor aware over RDP and ICA connections.
  • Client USB Port Virtualization – makes client attached USB devices visible to virtual desktops and applications.
  • Rich Sound – enables and facilitates the deployment of virtual desktops and applications that require receiving and transmitting audio without compromise.

In addition to its own technology, Wyse will be showing how a digital classroom ICT infrastructure can be combined with the latest software from Microsoft and NetSupport.

Wyse will be previewing the new Microsoft Windows MultiPoint Server 2010 solution that allows multiple users to simultaneously share one computer. This is ideal for educational institutions that want to provide more teachers and students with access to technology.

NetSupport School software provides teachers with the classroom management software tools to instruct, monitor and interact with their students. The latest version of NetSupport School also provides full audio monitoring and language lab functionality as well as new electronic journals for each student, providing a full record of all activity undertaken during the class.

In addition to its stand, Wyse will be running a seminar in the BETT 2010 TrainingZone on Friday 15th January at 2pm on the advances and new developments in virtualization technology and the subsequent benefits to the 21st century digital classroom.
