Hewlett-Packard is the latest company to enter the Windows based terminal market.
The company today launched its Netvectra line of terminals in Europe, which the company said, will ease deployment, maximise uptime, lower cost of ownership and reduce day to day maintenance.
At the Cebit trade show in Germany earlier this month, Acer also announced its entry into the Windows Terminal market.
According to Phil Hall, product manager for HP's UK desktop division, the combination of HP Netvectra windows based terminals and its Toptools Web based management software, enables IT managers to save time by performing routine tasks - including the ability to search, group and track by users, department or customer group - without leaving their desks.
Hall commented: "IT managers need only visit a users' desk once - to plug in a terminal. It's really that simple. With the increasing cost of IT resources today, we are making deployment and maintenance of our Windows based terminals as intuitive and simple as possible with remote manageability and built in networking features."
He said HP would be providing further Toptools functionality for the terminals in the second quarter of this year, including remote configuration, trouble shooting and security management.
In addition, with SNMP industry standard manageability, the terminals can be viewed, tracked and managed using enterprise management platforms such as HP's Openview, Computer Associates Unicenter TNG or Tivoli TME 10.
Pricing starts at #339.
