HP Expands Thin Client Solutions for Mobility and Unified Communications

HP Velocity, Extended Support for Citrix Enhance Reliability, Security

PALO ALTO, CA -- May 23, 2013 -- HP (NYSE: HPQ) today announced software enhancements and new unified communication support to help companies realize the reliability and security benefits of thin clients without sacrificing the user experience.

These solutions will be showcased May 22-24 in Booth No. 201 at Citrix Synergy in Los Angeles.

Many organizations provide desktop or mobile thin clients to their employees who work in remote offices, at multiple work sites or frequently travel on business. These devices are optimal for ensuring the security of sensitive data because if they are lost or stolen, the data on them is still secure in the organization's data center. Challenges arise, however, when organizations want to add real-time communication applications such as Voice-over IP (VoIP) to their thin clients. Infrastructure issues such as network latency and spotty Wi-Fi can result in distortion, static and echo, therefore rendering these much-needed communication applications impractical.

Enhancements to HP Velocity, network performance management software for thin clients, and extended support for Citrix solve these common thin client customer problems. They address network performance issues, correcting for latency and packet loss, to deliver enhanced computing performance for end users. (1) Citrix virtualization and networking technologies, coupled with HP Velocity, enable applications such as video streaming, file transfer and VoIP to operate more reliably, even over challenging networks.

"As office workers become more mobile and more smartphones, laptops and tablets enter the workplace, the challenge to secure data grows more daunting," said Jeff Groudan, marketing director, Thin Clients, HP. "With innovations such as HP Velocity and our support for unified communications, companies can enable their mobile workforce while knowing they have the security, realibility and managebility of thin clients without sacrificing productivity, user experience or performance."

New solutions for mobility and unified communications

  • HP Velocity enhanced with latency and congestion control optimization. Networks are dynamic, with constantly changing conditions. This is especially true of the Wi-Fi and 3G/4G networks used for many mobile thin clients. HP Velocity, included with HP thin clients, intelligently adapts to network conditions, improving network utilization to help ensure telecommuters, branch office workers and mobile users experience less distortion when using real-time communication applications.
  • The HP mt40 Mobile Thin Client is now Citrix Ready HDX Premium Verified with an Intel® Celeron® processor. Combined with HP Velocity, the HP mt40 provides the security of a mobile thin client with the performance required to offer excellent end-user experiences. For example, users are able to easily process multimedia, such as training videos, while on the road.
  • HP now supports Citrix Excalibur and Citrix Receiver 13 on HP t410 HDX-SOC platforms. HP thin clients running Citrix HDX-System on Chip (SoC) technology offer the high performance necessary to run VoIP or other multimedia over a challenging network. (2) The system also offers low power consumption, which makes it ideal for use in older buildings or at any location where reduced energy use is essential.
  • HP Thin Clients also are now qualified to work with the following unified communication (UC) solutions:
    • Avaya VDI Communicator UC
    • Cisco UC backend
    • Citrix Lync Optimization pack
    • Microsoft Lync 2013 native UC

In addition to showcasing the solutions above, at Citrix Synergy, HP will demonstrate its portfolio of tablets and notebooks, integrated with back-end virtualization and Citrix XenMobile, giving attendees a look at the most cutting-edge enterprise mobility solutions.
