Thin-client devices are now being delivered with end-to-end Windows support in the form of the Winterm 3000 series from Wyse.
The Winterm 3000 uses Windows CE 2.1 for Windows-based terminals to offer multi-user access to Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition. The series enables multi-protocol access to Windows applications and legacy applications. Users can choose between Citrix's ICA (Independent Computing Architecture) protocol or WinFrame server software Microsoft's RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) protocol, or various terminal emulations.
Current users of Wyse's Winterm 2000 series, using pure ICA, can convert their devices to Winterm 3000 through a software upgrade.
Hitting the streets at #499, the 3315SE model includes a 14in integrated monitor.
Wyse has also introduced a high-end version of its Winterm 2000 terminal, featuring integrated audio output and optional embedded 3270/5250 terminal emulation.
Eileen O'Brien, enterprise NC program director with analyst group IDC, said there remains a need for ICA-based thin clients in the corporate market. "We expect that a majority of existing thin client installations will continue to use Citrix's WinFrame software, as well as MetaFrame software," she said.
