Long-standing partnership with Citrix
IGEL Technology is one of the world's leading manufacturers of thin clients, zero clients and thin client software and has been working closely with Citrix for over 12 years. IGEL has been a Citrix Global Alliance Partner since 2002, and IGEL thin clients have been certified by Citrix on an ongoing basis since 2006. With their great potential for standardization, the thin and zero clients from IGEL perfectly complement the Citrix portfolio.
Certification for zero clients
When it comes to accessing Citrix XenDesktop, IGEL zero clients offer outstanding performance and an optimum user experience. The "Citrix Ready HDX Verified" certificate issued by Citrix verifies that IGEL zero clients support advanced HDX functions including the operation of external smartcard readers or two monitors connected in parallel (dualview). Other examples are voice over IP, video conferences and 3D graphics. Standard users of IGEL zero clients enjoy a user experience which is comparable to that of a modern Windows 7 PC. At the same time, they benefit from minimal operating costs as IGEL includes the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS), the leading remote management solution, with all zero clients.
High productivity and future-proofing
The IGEL Appliance Mode for Citrix XenDesktop is an additional benefit. It takes the user to the logon mask of the virtual Windows desktop immediately after switching on the device and without having to make contact with the zero client's local operating system. The high-quality, rugged design of IGEL’s devices and regular firmware updates ensure long service lives and investment protection. What is more, all models in the IZ2 and IZ3 ranges come with an upgrade option allowing them to be converted into the IGEL UD2 and UD3 multi-protocol thin clients. The Bremen-based manufacturer emphasizes the typical IGEL future-proofing with the slogan "Zero Clients – The IGEL Way!".
