October 8, 2020: The premium audio brand, EPOS – part of the Demant Group, today announces that it will team up with IGEL Technology, one of the leading international companies offering solutions for server-based computing and desktop virtualization, to ensure flawless collaboration and communication across organizations.
As working remotely is being more relevant than ever before, and more professionals use mobile devices in their day-to-day work via cloud-based services, the future of thin clients in the modern workplace is set to increase. Being highly secure and manageable due their ability to streamline hardware and run specific programs for specific tasks, thin clients are often used by larger organizations dealing with sensitive data in sectors including Banking, Finance and Insurance Service, as well as Healthcare, Government and Education. To keep up with demands within these sectors, and ensure optimal communication and collaboration among professionals, the audio brand EPOS announces its new collaboration with IGEL Technology, one of the leading international companies offering solutions for server-based computing and desktop virtualization.
Businesses leveraging Linux thin client via the IGEL OS operating system will now have the opportunity to integrate EPOS Device Management into its operating system to ensure seamless optimization and management of their EPOS audio devices. The EPOS Device Management consists of two interconnected audio device management solutions for thin clients – EPOS Connect and EPOS Manager – that are both now compatible with VDI solutions and enabling IT managers to optimize and update an organization’s audio devices from a central position.
A dedicated version of the client application EPOS Connect has been integrated into IGEL OS, and once enabled via Universal Management Suite (UMS), IT managers can download and install EPOS Manager – a free cloud-based IT management tool that allows full audio device management, configuration management and firmware updates across an entire organization from a central position, thus ensuring full control.
