Info: New IGEL Product Names explaned (short version)

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Hello Folks,

since the Universal Desktop W7 3.07.100 you might noticed that the product name/description has been changed.

Old names like UD3-720 W7 or UD5-740 LX are gone away to a more easier description.

The new syntax will be UD(Hardware)-Operating System + feature extensions. Sounds crazy? Ok, here is a sample:

Old: UD3-740 W7  New: UD3-W7 cp

Possible extensions:

p = PowerTerm Emulation (Requires  an extra License now which can be received for free from IGEL)

s = Shared Workplace (Extra Login feature for AD based Users and to assign profiles in the UMS to these users, requires a seperate sold license)

c = Codec Package (Multimedia Codecs, seperate sold license regarding the fact that multimedia codecs are not for free for business use)

u = Universal Multi Display (Seperate sold license to support more then two Displays)

If you upgrade a device it depends on the current feature set what type of extension(s) will be available, a device with the Advanced License will get c and p, a device with a Standard License will get only the p and an old Entry License will receive no extensions at all.

So it’s not really hard to translate…


Regarding the new IGEL Zero Clients it’s also quite simple; first of all the new Zero Clients are not Universal Desktop devices and this means: UD for Universal Desktop will be replaced thru IZ for IGEL Zero. Also the Hardwareplatform is coded in the name, if you want a hardware that is similar to the UD3 the name will be IZ3. Simple or not?

Now you have three Zero Client solutions available: HDX (Citrix), RFX (Microsoft) and Horizon (VMWare).

So if you want a Zero Client based on the UD3 Hardware it’s a IZ3-RFX, for VMWare View it’s IZ3-Horizon and IZ3-HDX for Citrix. There are no extra features/extensions available for the Zero Clients so we can skip this part.

Intresting: If you decide to upgrade a IZ Client to the more flexible UD Platform, this can be done but it requires an extra license (..on the other side it helps saving your investment in case that you move from one solution to an other one).

I will explain this in more detail in the Hardware Overview Whitepaper but regarding the fact that i’ve currently much to do it can take some time for the update.
