Continuing in its mission to help iSeries users leverage their investment in Twinax, BOSaNOVA Inc. has begun shipping a complete kit that turns its BOSÂNOVA LTC-600 Thin Client into a leading-edge wireless communications solution.
"Wireless makes a lot of sense in large, open locations such as warehouses. Several customers have already ordered our BOSÂNOVA LTC-600 Thin Clients with the wireless kit for that purpose," explains Martin Pladgeman, BOSaNOVA, Inc. President. "Wireless gives them more flexibility and freedom, since they don't need repeaters and won't have to restring wires every time they reconfigure the space."
A complete solution, the Wireless Kit (PID 8022) adds 802.11b wireless communication support, a PCMCIA card and an activated PCMCIA slot to the standard BOSÂNOVA LTC-600 configurations. (PID 8021 supports Cisco's Aeronet 350 wireless card.)
The BOSÂNOVA LTC Series of thin client terminals feature embedded iSeries and pSeries emulation to provide a low cost, easily configurable and versatile solution for TN5250e and TN3270e connectivity. A built-in Mozilla web browser supports e-mail and provides intranet/Internet access.
Whether the application is data entry, point of sale, training, ISPs, or web kiosks, these thin clients provide highly cost-effective access to Windows desktop applications residing on a Microsoft Windows NT/2000 Terminal Server or Citrix server. Centralized configuration and user management, including security, drastically reduce cost of ownership, while the versatility of the hardware platform and customization capabilities increase user productivity.
Pricing and availability
Available now, the Wireless Kit (PID 8022 or 8021) has a suggested list price of $175.
