Wyse Accelerates Digital Classroom Innovation With Broadest Ever Portfolio of Cloud Client Computing Solutions for Educators at BETT 2012Global Education ICT Event to Showcase Fastest, Most Reliable, Easiest to Manage and Education-Friendly Virtual Device and Software Solutions on the Market (January 10, 2012)
SAN JOSE, CA and LONDON -- (Marketwire) -- 01/10/12 -- Wyse Technology, the global leader in cloud client computing, today announced its participation in BETT 2012, the world's largest technology in education event, which runs January 11th to 14th, 2012, Olympia, London, UK. Visitors will experience how Wyse solutions transform classrooms with more reliable, quieter and easier to manage virtual desktop and mobile hardware and software, enhancing and extending rather than disrupting teaching and learning. Wyse is demonstrating its solutions on stand E119.
BETT 2012 will be an excellent opportunity for educators to receive updates on the breadth of Wyse desktop virtualization solutions for all kinds and sizes of educational institutions.
Wyse will be showcasing several classroom settings in its stand, all of which take advantage of how Wyse thin or zero clients are centrally managed, have no moving parts, are extremely quiet and generate little heat. This all helps to make classroom ICT non-disruptive to lessons, when compared to PC reliability and performance issues. The smaller size and robustness of the Wyse devices allows educators to experiment and extend their use of computing with greater access for more students.
For smaller schools and colleges, Wyse offers a shared computing solution with Wyse E01 and E02 zero clients for Microsoft MultiPoint Server and enables up to 10 students to share a single computer. BETT will be the first opportunity to see how the new Wyse E02 enhances this entry level desktop virtualization solution, making it even easier for teachers to set up and use in the classroom, providing an excellent Microsoft Windows 7 desktop experience for their students. This solution is already transforming the provision of ICT in education worldwide including Serbia where Wyse shared computing is expanding access to the latest learning technologies for over 30,000 students.
For institutions that have selected a shared server strategy based around virtual desktops, visitors can try out the latest Wyse zero clients optimized for either Citrix XenDesktop or VMware View. These, and other selected Wyse thin clients, will be demonstrating how virtual desktops can replace PCs in classrooms, libraries, learning centers and across the full array of educational applications, including rich multi-media applications for digital arts and video production. This superb end user experience combined with ease of management and lower cost of ownership is attracting a growing number of schools and colleges worldwide like New College Durham and University of Nebraska at Omaha to migrate to virtual desktop infrastructure on a massive scale.
As schools and colleges explore how cloud services and applications can be utilized, Wyse will be demonstrating its latest desktop and mobile thin clients for web access. This includes the world's fastest thin client family, the Wyse Z class, and the new budget-friendly Wyse T50 thin client.
Alongside its hardware solutions, Wyse will also be demonstrating how its WSM software simplifies the management of cloud PCs and legacy desktop PCs working within a virtual desktop environment. Time-consuming management tasks that divert scarce educational IT resources are eliminated and replaced with more efficient centralized management. The education authority of Gauteng Province in South Africa is proving how this Wyse solution widens access to classroom ICT as they roll out 70,000 student desktops across all schools in Johannesburg and Pretoria.
Wyse is present across the event on its partners' stands including RM Education.
