IGEL Technology Enhances the Functionality of Software and Hardware Endpoints

New update supports mobile broadband connectivity, management of up to four displays through the IGEL Universal Desktop Converter (UDC), and expands multimedia capabilities

SAN FRANCISCO, June 22, 2016 – IGEL Technology, a world leader in the delivery of powerful workspace management software, software-defined endpoints, and thin and zero client solutions, today announced that it has enhanced the functionality of its Linux-based software and hardware endpoints with a update that supports mobile broadband connectivity and multi-display management, and expands multimedia capabilities.

“At IGEL Technology, we are always looking for ways to add new features and functionality that enhance the desktop computing experience for end-users, and make it easier for IT organizations to manage workspaces across the enterprise,” said Gary Sharp, Vice President of Sales, IGEL Technology North America. “With the new high-performance computing and advanced multimedia capabilities now available through our latest Linux update, we are ensuring that our Linux-based software and hardware endpoints meet the requirements of our end-user customers today, and well into the future.”

Some of the new features and functionality now available with IGEL’s Linux-based software and hardware endpoints, include:

  • Mobile Broadband Connectivity.
    Customer demand for the ability to connect IGEL endpoints to centralized IT infrastructure via a mobile broadband connection, instead of the traditional Ethernet network, drove the integration of a 4G wireless card. Now, end-users can simply and securely connect their IGEL software and hardware endpoints using a Huawei E3531 HSPA+ mobile broadband USB drive, which can be purchased separately.

  • Multi-Display Management.
    Many users within vertical markets, including financial services and healthcare, are increasing their reliance on multiple desktop displays. To meet this growing customer demand for multi-display support, IGEL has integrated a Radeon R7 250 Eyefinity 4 graphics card into its Universal Desktop Converter (UDC 2) software. Now, up to four displays can be conveniently managed through the IGEL Universal Management Suite 5 (UMS 5) software.

  • Expanded Multimedia Capabilities.
    Due to the growing use of HTML5 programming languages to develop websites, IGEL has added an optional multimedia codec pack that includes the latest version of the AAC audio code to ensure quick and easy playback of HTML5-based YouTube videos in MP4 format.

The new update also includes a trial of IGEL’s HDX 3D Pro hardware acceleration software. Designed for high-performance workstations operating within Citrix environments, HDX 3D Pro can easily be managed via the IGEL UMS.

IGEL Technology is a gold-level sponsor for the 2016 Citrix Synergy Unplugged Tour, and its family of Linux-based software and hardware endpoints will be featured during a 25-city tour event that began earlier this week, and will travel across the United States through Wednesday, September 7. More information on the 2016 Citrix Synergy Unplugged Tour is available here.
