IGEL provides Citrix users with unique two-speed migration opportunity to Citrix XenDesktop 7 with its latest firmware update

Latest IGEL firmware updates for zero clients, thin clients and software thin clients gives Citrix customers the option of switching to Citrix XenDesktop 7 or extending the use of their existing deployment.

Reading, UK. 6th May 2014 - IGEL Technology is keeping the options open for Citrix users of its thin and zero client solutions whilst preparing for Citrix XenDesktop 7. With its latest firmware update, the German thin client company is allowing its customers to decide when they switch to the new release and to ensure that the upgrade is smooth and trouble free. The IGEL firmware update (5.3.100) for Linux-based thin and zero client solutions includes two versions of the Citrix Receiver access software: the new Version 13 for Citrix XenDesktop 7.x or the previous Version 12, enabling IGEL customers to use their devices with any Citrix application.

"IGEL's approach is always about open desktops and providing our customers with choice," said Simon Richards, IGEL's Managing Director for UK & Ireland. "By incorporating both Citrix Receivers into our firmware we are allowing our customers the option of continuing to add to their existing desktop estate using their existing setting profiles, whilst certain in the knowledge that their IGEL desktops will be ready for Citrix XenDesktop 7 when they choose to deploy it."

Citrix XenDesktop 7 is an attractive proposition for thin client users for a number of reasons, such as access to the virtual desktops provided as part of the cost-effective Citrix VDI in a Box solution. It also provides direct access to StoreFront stores and Citrix XenApp sites. Citrix Receiver 13 also features a new graphical user interface via which users can subscribe to and launch apps and desktops (Self-Service UI).

Price and availability
The new IGEL firmware Version 5.3.100 with both Citrix Receivers is now available for downloading free of charge at www.myigel.biz. The update is aimed at all IGEL zero clients (IZ2/IZ3 HDX) and all multi-protocol thin clients in the IGEL Linux Universal Desktop range (UD2, UD3, UD5, UD9 and UD10) as well as all software thin clients that were created with the help of the IGEL Universal Desktop Converter 2 (UDC2) client standardization solution. The firmware with both Citrix Receivers will also be made available for IGEL's IZ1 HDX zero client.

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will look at the protocols that communicate data and the emerging data analy...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
