Neoware Unveils Groundbreaking Heavy-Duty Thin Client that Drives Security, Manageability, and Reliability to New Levels
The Neoware e900 Delivers Mobility and Performance Under Harsh Temperatures, Water and Physical Duress
KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Aug. 29, 2005 -- Neoware Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: NWRE), the leading supplier of enterprise software, thin client appliances and related services, today announced the Neoware e900, a groundbreaking thin client designed to support industrial thin client applications in the harshest working conditions with superior security, manageability and reliability.
Powered by Neoware software and management tools, the Neoware e900 offers the security and manageability of traditional thin clients in a hardened, wireless device designed for non-office environments such as retail distribution centers, transportation hubs and manufacturing shop floors.
Employees can take the Neoware e900 into virtually any environment and input data using handheld barcode scanners or by using the Neoware e900 touch screen. Information can then be transmitted to servers using the Neoware e900's integrated wireless capability. Because the Neoware e900 has no hard drive or other moving parts, it is more reliable than hardened personal computers, more secure, since no data can be stored locally, and can be centrally managed using Neoware management software. The Neoware e900 was awarded a NEMA 4X/IP56 rating, indicating that it qualifies for use in extreme conditions. The Neoware e900 is designed to work effectively in both very cold and hot environments with an operating temperature range of -30 degrees C to +50 degrees C.
A leading global retailer is experiencing first hand the reliability that the Neoware e900 delivers. The Neoware e900 works with barcode scanners to read and transmit data quickly and effectively on thousands of pieces of products, inventory, supplies, etc. daily. The Neoware e900 is designed to work in varying environments, such as a freezer, open warehouse, tractor-trailers, dust, and outdoor lots. The Neoware e900 is designed to sustain falls and be exposed to moisture without being damaged.
In addition to providing sophisticated technical features, the Neoware e900 delivers user-friendly and ruggedized construction. The thin client provides a 12-inch, TFT active LCD screen that allows users to adjust brightness, providing optimum visibility even in bright sunlight. Unlike fragile personal computers, the heavy-duty Neoware e900 will function in adverse environmental conditions.
The Neoware e900 complements Neoware's existing line of thin clients and software, and can be managed using the same management software. By deploying the Neoware e900, global retailers, transportation companies, health care providers and manufacturers can now achieve the benefits of thin client computing, even in harsh environments.
"The Neoware e900 sets a new standard for rugged thin clients as it provides the enhanced security and central management of Neoware's software in a very durable and reliable device," said Roy Zatcoff, Neoware's Executive Vice President of Marketing and Product Development. "The Neoware e900 delivers the benefits of thin client computing over a wireless network, and under extremely harsh working conditions, so customers can get the job done efficiently and productively."
The Neoware e900 is designed to be customized for varying individual customer needs and is available from Neoware with a list price beginning at $3,999.
