Sync Wi-Fi enabled devlices like media players or digital cameras
Share content among your Wi-Fi devices anywhere
Show content from one Wi-Fi enabled device on another Wi-Fi device. Ex. Show a streaming video from the Internet on an HDTV
Print directly to a Wi-Fi enabled printer
My WiFi technology lets your Wi-Fi enabled CE devices connect directly and securely to your notebook without having to go through a Wi-Fi network access point. Your Intel Centrino 2 processor technology based notebook is your own portable Wi-Fi network.
Intel My WiFi technology inherits the same mature security capabilities of conventional Wi-Fi (i.e. WPA, WPA2, etc)

Typical Terminal Services/Citrix Implementation Remote Computing Branch Offices Windows Terminals and NCs Wireless Terminals and Information Appliances Web Computing Cross- Platform Desktops WinFrame & MetaFrame Server Farms
Can Support Windows CE, XP Embedded, Thin OS’s (i.e. ThinConnect) and Linux Environments.
Some are configured with NO local OS.
Can Be Configured On As Low As 16Mb Of RAM.
Same Feel As Working On a Windows Based OS – basic Windows fidelity.
Remote Computation….Server Takes Care Of All The Processing.
Works On either Citrix`s ICA (Independent Computing Architecture), Sun’s ALP (Appliance Link Protocol) Or Microsoft's RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) Protocols (Both Require Only 20Kbps Speed Over Network To Work).

Client Hardware Virtualization Share excess computing resources among multiple users! Turn 1 PC to up 30 Virtual PCs Capacity of the average CPU is under-utilized (using less than 10%!) < CPU meter >
NComputing Technology Enables Desktop Virtualization 1 2 3 NComputing vSpace Software runs on standard Windows or Linux host computer NComputing User Extension Protocol (UXP) delivers a secure, multi-media interface NComputing Access Terminals are slim, silent, efficient, and very low cost
Hardware Product Line Overview L-Series: Ethernet Connection X-Series: Direct Connection
Host in same room (10m)
1 watt per user
X550: Up to 11 users per host
X300: Up to 7 users per host
Highest # of users per host
Ethernet = no distance limits
5 watts per user
Up to 30 users per host computer
X Series Configuration Note: Four users can share a PC running with one X300 kit. Seven users can share with two X300 kits. Ideal environments: K-12
L Series Deployment Architecture Note: Up to 30 users can share if the host hardware is a server running a server OS (i.e. Terminal Server 2008). Ideal Environments: Some Higher Ed computer labs Connects over the LAN or WAN at any distance using an IP address
Why buy an access terminal vs. another PC
Saves Hardware cost (less expensive than a thin client and easier to deploy).
Reduces IT Maintenance
Promotes central storage networks to increase data security
Reduces Power consumption and saves energy
Essentially, never obsolete and easy to upgrade
Eliminate any down time by having multiple host PC’s
Sample Hardware Virtualized environment During Class Time, Playing a game Send a warning message to a student and close an game window by using NControl NControl can monitor student sessions, send warnings, and even close the game window Student is playing a game in class In this example, just four host PCs are needed for a lab with 24 students!
Access Terminal at student:
Powered by the Ethernet cable, so
no additional electrical needed
Generates no heat, hence no
HVAC retrofits required
Only 1 network cable drop feeds 7 students -- dramatically reducing wiring costs/time
