NEW YORK, NY: IGEL Technology Sales, a manufacturer and distributor of thin and zero client hardware and software, has extended its portfolio of Unified Management Solutions to add the IGEL Universal Desktop Converter 2 (UDC2). It is the enhanced version of the IGEL UDC, which includes Dell Wyse 5000 and 7000 series thin clients and endpoint devices supported by the software.

The IGEL Universal Management Suite 5 (UMS5) comes with IGEL UDC2 software that lets users to distantly control any endpoint device running the Microsoft Windows 7 or IGEL Linux operating system. It also enables businesses to manage their workspace environments more efficiently; and diminishes the cost, time and effort linked with remote endpoint management.

Moreover, the addition of UDC2 enables organizations to modify thin clients of existing Dell Wyse 5000 and 7000 series into an IGEL thin or zero client running the Microsoft Windows Embedded operating system. It also allows users to change the previous D and Z generation or thin clients from other leading manufacturers and x86-based desktop computers and notebooks running any into Linux, ThinOS or Windows Embedded operating system, into an IGEL thin or zero client running the Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 7 or IGEL Linux operating system.

However, the transformation of local endpoint devices into IGEL thin and zero clients can be done through either a UDC token or USB device; while network transformation needs an IGEL UDC Deployment Appliance Server added with a PXE server and web GUI.

“The IGEL UDC2 is ideal for businesses that are looking to simplify the remote management of their desktops, or transition more smoothly to a VDI environment. By adding support for Dell Wyse 5000 and 7000 series thin clients, we are making it even easier for IT organizations to convert their existing desktops from leading suppliers that are used in cloud and virtual environments into IGEL thin and zero clients, while gaining all the benefits of simplified, central remote management,” says Simon Richards, MD of IGEL, North America.
