Alongside its award-winning Linux-based LTC Series and the recently released XP-embedded model, BOScom has announced a Windows CE.NET-based thin client. The latest offering in the BOScom thin client family, the BOSÂNOVA WTC-400, is specifically tailored for iSeries shops that need a simple, cost-effective solution for connectivity to a server, whether it be iSeries, Microsoft Terminal Server, and/or Citrix.
"Like other award-winning products offered by industry-veteran BOScom, the BOSÂNOVA WTC-400 provides unique advantages to iSeries customers," stated Martin Pladgeman, President of BOSaNOVA, Inc. "For example, other CE.NET-based thin clients support only full-screen applications, while the BOSÂNOVA WTC-400 allows management of multiple browser windows within a single browser instance. As a result, even pop-up windows (which typically require the user to close the new window in order to revert to the parent window) are no longer a distraction to the user's workflow. This capability vastly improves the user experience and increases productivity."
The BOSÂNOVA WTC-400 joins the Linux-based BOSÂNOVA LTC Series (named in Search400.com's 2003 Product of the Year awards in the PC/Windows Connectivity Tools Category) and the BOSÂNOVA XTC-400 (the recently announced Windows XP-based model) in BOScom's rapidly growing family of thin client solutions.
The BOSÂNOVA WTC-400, based on a 400 MHz VIA processor with 64MB RAM and 32MB DOM, utilizes the same Remote Administration software as the BOSÂNOVA LTC Series. It comes embedded with the IE 6 Web browser; Pop3 email; VNC Client; Citrix NFuse; Tarantella; Word, Excel and PowerPoint viewers; and a PDF reader. Support for TN5250e/TN3270e GUI display and printing emulations is also included, as are the very latest RDP and ICA clients for connection to Microsoft Terminal Servers and Citrix, respectively. The BOSÂNOVA WTC-400 units also feature large icons in the Connection Manager, and support touch screen and the BOSÂNOVA 122-key keyboard, which increases user productivity by providing the full range of function keys for both Windows Terminal Server and iSeries applications.
AvailabilityThe BOSÂNOVA WTC-400 is available now via BOScom's distribution channel. Demo units are also available. Call (866) 865-5250 for details. Reseller inquiries welcome.
