HP Brings Unified Communications to Mobile Users

HP announced software enhancements and new unified communication support for thin clients such as mobile devices. HP's network performance management software for thin clients, and extended support for Citrix, aim to solve connectivity, security and compatibility issues faced by mobile users. Citrix virtualization and networking technologies, coupled with HP Velocity, are now configured to enable applications such as video streaming, file transfer and VoIP to operate more reliably, even over challenging networks.

“As office workers become more mobile and more smartphones, laptops and tablets enter the workplace, the challenge to secure data grows more daunting,” says Jeff Groudan, marketing director of Thin Clients for HP. “With innovations such as HP Velocity and our support for unified communications, companies can enable their mobile workforce while knowing they have the security, reliability and manageability of thin clients without sacrificing productivity, user experience or performance.”

HP Velocity, included with HP thin clients, is designed to intelligently adapt to network conditions, improving network utilization to help ensure telecommuters, branch office workers and mobile users experience less distortion when using real-time communication applications.

HP also says its HP mt40 Mobile Thin Client is now Citrix Ready HDX Premium Verified with an AMD Richland processor. HP now supports Citrix Excalibur and Citrix Receiver 13 on HP t410 HDX-SOC platforms, and run on Citrix HDX-System on Chip (SoC) technology.

HP Thin Clients also are now certified to work with unified communication (UC) solutions such as Avaya VDI Communicator UC, Cisco UC backend, Citrix Lync Optimization pack and Microsoft Lync 2013 native UC
