Fujitsu has announced the new FUTRO S700 and FUTRO S900 thin clients, the first Fujitsu thin clients to use innovative and eco-friendly Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology. Despite drawing only a trickle of power over Ethernet networks, the FUTRO S700 and FUTRO S900 are among the most powerful thin clients available today, boasting up to six times enhanced performance over previous models.
Fujitsu is taking Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology from its pioneering Zero Client line to introduce the technology to its thin client line. Offering both power and Ethernet via a single cable for increased flexibility and connectivity, PoE technology requires very low power consumption, benefiting both the environment and companies’ bottom lines. Thin clients can also be connected to a traditional electrical outlet if preferred. Rollouts and power requirements alike are simplified since the units need only one cable for combined connectivity and power.
The new Fujitsu FUTRO models also provide added flexibility and convenience. Up to four displays can be connected to the FUTRO S900 thanks to an additional graphics card, making it ideal for environments where operators need multiple screens. System performance is enhanced with two memory slots for increased local performance, while both models feature integrated WLAN for improved connectivity.
The thin clients are even able to provide the processing capabilities to cope with rendering and performance-intensive 3D modeling: the Fujitsu models are among the first to introduce support for DirectX11 graphics technology.
Rajat Kakar, Vice President Workplace Systems at Fujitsu Technology Solutions says: “Thin clients are an important component of today’s efficient, virtualized workplace. For companies ready to take advantage of the cost and performance benefits of virtual desktops or server based computing, the Fujitsu FUTRO S700 and S900 models make the transition easy.”
