For NCS-branded desktop virtualization, we feature Teradici-enabled zero clients and our booth staff is available to describe the benefits of this technology. We also feature and sell HP thin clients, including the HP t420 and HP t530 Thin Client, which support the Citrix HDX access protocol.  Both zero client and thin client technologies are widely implemented and we can describe use cases for both. On the booth are Matt Cooke and Mike Turicchi, who can demonstrate all the approaches you may wish to implement.
