"The PCoIP Remote Workstation Solution, with Host Cards and Zero Clients, is ideal. It doesn’t break the illusion, and that’s the goal of our simulators – to make you forget you are in a simulator."

Challenge

  • Supporting embedded workstations (cumbersome access; remote locations)
  • Access to very high-end GPUs from all endpoints (driving sophisticated 3D displays)
  • Avoiding distractions for trainees (noisy computers break the illusion)

Solution

  • Teradici® PCoIP® Remote Workstation Cards
  • Dell® P25 and P45 PCoIP Zero Clients

Results

  • Quiet, cool operation: Fewer distractions, for a better user experience.
  • Ease of support: No software updates for endpoints, and more reliable operation.
  • Real-time performance: Pixel-only downloads drive high-speed imagery and high levels of interactivity for large teams of users.
  • Resource efficiency: GPUs can be centralized, remotely accessed, and therefore easily shared across multiple simulator stations.
