Neoware adds Linux thin clients

Nov 14, 2005 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 5 views

Neoware has added two devices to its line of Linux-based thin clients. The c50 offers a low price point, while the e370 (pictured at right) features an integrated design that builds the thin client electronics directly into a 17-inch flat panel display.

Both units are based on a 400MHz Via processor, and offer up to 512 MB each of DDR RAM and Flash memory. Built-in interfaces include 10/100 auto-sensing Ethernet, dual USB 2.0, serial, parallel, audio, and PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports. The e370 also includes a PCMCIA slot.

The c50's display controller supports displays of up to 1600 x 1200 resolution in 32-bit color. The e370's DVI TFT LCD provides 1280 x 1024 resolution and supports an optional touchscreen.

The C50 and e370 both include a local Netscape Navigator web browser, and Neoware's TeemTalk terminal emulation package, said to support more than 30 different green screen terminals, including IBM 3270, 5250, DEC VT, HP, and Wyse. Both thin clients can be configured to support ICA, RDP, or X.11/XDM, Neoware says.

Neoware says all its thin clients work with the company's ezRemote Manager based on open, standards-based protocols. This allows enterprises to integrate Neoware thin clients with PC networks, and integrate thin client management with existing PC management tools, including Altiris, Microsoft SMS, and IBM Tivoli.

Pricing starts at $299 for the Linux-based C50, or at $1,099 for the Linux-based e370. Both devices are also available with Windows CE, starting at $369 and $1,049, respectively, or with Windows XP Embedded, starting at $499 or $1,149.
