BOSÂNOVA thin clients ship with newest Citrix ICA client


Martin Pladgeman, president of BOSÂNOVA, Inc., the North American Master Distributor of IBM eServer connectivity products from BOScom, Ltd., announces that its Windows CE-, XP Embedded- and Linux-based BOSÂNOVA Thin Clients are already shipping with Version 8, the newest version of the Citrix ICA client.

The Citrix ICA client is the software component that executes on the client device (i.e., the Thin Client) and allows the user to establish a Citrix ICA session with a Citrix MetaFrame server. This session enables the user to access server-based applications that appear to run locally on the client machine but execute on the server. Version 8 offers many new enhancements which BOScom users can take full advantage of immediately.

"Within two days of notification from Citrix about Version 8 of their ICA client, we were able to incorporate and ship it in our family of BOSÂNOVA Thin Clients," said Pladgeman. "Such responsiveness is our hallmark. As a Citrix Premier Business Alliance Partner, we get early notice of such changes. Our responsive R&D team were able to incorporate these new drivers and produce new builds much quicker than other Thin Client providers who rely on third party or overseas R&D."

BOSÂNOVA, Inc. markets its Windows- and Linux-based Thin Clients through a network of independent VARs. More information is available at
