Ultra Thin Clients from Axel
Axel are a European developer of thin-client devices who design terminals from a unique perspective. Our concept is to develop hardware and software specifically to run RDP (Terminal Services) and ICA (Citrix), not to “improvise” on existing PC technology.
As such there is no debate for Axel as to which operating system to use – none is required for a thin-client, so none is used. The device will only ever run RDP or ICA, both of which require 3Mb or so of memory to run. Axel develop hardware optimised to run these protocols. The flexibility offered by an operating system cannot realistically be used on a thin-client, but the advantages of not having an operating system are many….
No local administration (no usernames / passwords / dowloading settings)
Less hardware, so less power consumed (6w), less heat generated leading to higher reliability
Physically much smaller and ideal for mounting out of sight on rear of monitor (M70w is size of a cigarette packet)
Instant connection - (ie no booting)
Simple and intuitive remote administration (no scripts, no TFTP etc)
Lower cost (& special educational pricing, please call/email for details)
