When it Comes to Design and Construction, High Performance or Nothing
Design, engineering, analytics, and construction professionals need quick and easy access to graphics-intensive applications to work with design concepts, simulations, and project data from anywhere. Enter remote desktops, where AEC organizations are rapidly equipping workers with lightweight laptops that offer user experience and performance advantages that far outweigh traditional deskside workstations.
The portability and availability are key factors that allow laptops to shine. Not only are workflows accelerated by modern hyperlinks between centralized workstations and data assets, but IT Teams may also rest assured that client confidentiality agreements are strictly maintained – software applications run centrally so no data leaves the corporate data center. This facilitates seamless collaboration and rapid design progression too; when users interact with centralized content, the risk of out-of-step change orders on disconnected endpoints is drastically reduced.
Teradici PCoIP® technology offers a remote desktop experience renowned for lossless reproduction of text and crystal-clear representation of wireframes, textures, and other intricate graphics. Users maintain the responsive visual interactivity with their data expected of a modern local workstation. PCoIP technology ensures accessible, remote access to a wide array of AEC, BIM and CAD applications so that projects are supported through all phases from design concept through development, construction and closeout.
Unrivalled Performance and User Experience
Access mission-critical and graphics-intensive 3D applications from anywhere with impeccable interactivity. Allow design and technology to work in unison.
Whether working on-site with a lightweight laptop or in-office with dual 4K monitors, the PCoIP remote display protocol offers best-in-class user experience including lossless text, crisp wireframes, color accuracy, and unrivalled responsiveness. No matter if you’re working on project documentation or advanced AEC design visualizations, Teradici CAS (Cloud Access Software) offers a user experience rivalling a local workstation, even under challenging network conditions.
Anywhere, Anytime Access to Leading AEC Design Applications
For building/infrastructure design, construction, and CAD/CAM/CAE software, seamlessly access these applications with the device you have on hand. In many cases, a lightweight endpoint connected to a PCoIP-enabled remote workstation offers considerably higher performance than an expensive graphics laptop throttled by a slow VPN connection to corporate data assets. With limited bandwidth on local laptops connected by VPN, sending large amounts of 3D data would suffer. Instead, with Teradici CAS, remote workers can continue to enjoy their full suite of GPU-accelerated, graphics-intensive applications from leading developers, such as Autodesk, Bentley, Nemetschek, and Trimble.
Whether licensed for applications on your workstation back at the office, or a public cloud virtual workstation, Teradici PCoIP technology simply transmits the original display pixels to whichever device you have at hand. So you can harness the computing power of your office, or leverage the vast capabilities of the public cloud -- all from your laptop bag.
Manage Endpoints or Devices with the Ultimate Flexibility and Scalability
By augmenting your existing hardware platforms with public cloud infrastructure, you significantly reduce the need for expensive hardware upgrades. Teradici CAS includes a comprehensive management solution, CAS Manager, that enables highly scalable and cost-effective hybrid deployments bridging on-premises and public cloud workstations. CAS Manager provides user entitlements, brokers secure connections between users and desktops, offers multi-factor authentication and manages cloud computing costs by powering resources up and down strictly as needed.
Scale your deployment up or down only when needed, at a rapid pace across regions. Plus, remove the geographic barriers to international projects demanding collaboration between teams, contractors or specialists across different regions.
Wide Array of Host Options and Client Devices
Teradici CAS supports major operating systems including Windows, Linux, and macOS. A broad range of software clients, mobile clients, thin clients and stateless PCoIP Zero Clients on all operating systems are supported. Teradici collaborates with more than 25 OEM partners to ensure consistent performance of PCoIP-enabled devices.
Enjoy the benefits of USB peripherals critical to AEC design efficiency such as 3Dconnexion SpaceMouse or Wacom tablets and pen displays. The PCoIP local termination feature offers accelerated user interactivity with peripheral devices even over high latency networks.
Flexibility is the New Normal
With recent PCoIP Ultra™ protocol enhancements, CAS now delivers high frame rate 4K/UHD graphics workloads without compromise over LAN or WAN networks. Leveraging PCoIP Ultra Auto-Offload, power users can work from home across multiple displays and full frame-rate 3D graphics and corporate IT no longer need to pre-configure for specific use cases.
PCoIP Zero Clients also allow remote staff to access the full range of design applications back in the office from the comfort of home, with better security and often offering higher performance than locally installed applications on home computers or laptops. IT teams will appreciate the central management and ease of deployment.
Our enterprise subscriptions deliver a complete set of secure remoting solutions for knowledge workers and power users across a wide range of vertical markets. There are four All Access plans choose from to fit your particular needs. Each plan includes Management Console Enterprise Edition and 24 x 7 support from Teradici.
With a Desktop Access subscription you can rest easy knowing that your deployment is up-to-date, managed efficiently and supported by the inventors of PCoIP technology. Be certain that your infrastructure will evolve and scale with you, whether in your data center or the cloud.
The CA subscription gives you access to the PCoIP Standard Agent and is designed for applications that run solely on the CPU to process the workload. The CA+ subscription unlocks the PCoIP Graphics Agent and supports applications that require GPUs to support graphic-intensive workloads.
