Durabook Supplies a Complete Rugged Computer Portfolio

NCS sells Durabook solutions to government, military and commercial markets.

Consider the Durabook S14I Laptop, which pushes semi-rugged devices to the next level.

It is built with Intel® 11th Generation CPUs and has a class-leading 4' drop spec/IP 53 rating. The S14I is engineered to combine military-grade durability, field-worker functionality,  high performance, and long battery life for non-stop use, making it suitable for use in locations where rain or dust may be a regular occurrence.

The S14I features a significant CPU upgrade with Intel® Tiger Lake 11th generation platform, using Intel’s 10nm processor technology. This device comes with integrated Intel® Iris Xe graphics, and for professionals who use intensive graphic computing, it can be upgraded to an optional standalone NVIDIA GeForce® GTX1050. With the ultra-high-speed data transmission capability of Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 with max. speed of 2.4Gbps and Bluetooth® V5.2, all information is instantly synced and fed back to the data control center.

Durability and Security

The S14I is built with a robust mechanical design and rigorously tested components. It meets the standards of MIL-STD-810H; withstands up to a 4-foot drop; and boasts an IP53 rating. This tough yet elegant rugged laptop breaches the boundary between semi-rugged and fully-rugged devices.
It now includes Windows Hello encrypted biometrics, a more secure, user-friendly and faster way of accessing Windows® OS. The S14I semi-rugged platform is finding significant success in commercial markets, such as power/utilities, and in the military sector, including the U.S. Army and Air Force.

NCS Offers Leading Desktop Virtualization Solutions

Cirrus Portfolio for Government and Commercial Markets

NCS Technologies features Cirrus Notebook and Desktop endpoint solutions that are secure, cost effective and easy to use and administer. Maintaining strong security strategies at the desktop remain extremely important in government markets.

NCS desktop and laptop solutions are depended on for their strong security and portability. These products powered by HP Teradici software help IT managers maintain security and save money.

The Focus on Endpoint Security

IT managers understand that work PCs used in in the office and remotely can be too vulnerable to security breaches. For many administrators, using zero clients is the best solution to close the security gap.  NCS Zero Clients are managed by VMware Horizon software and use the ultra-secure HP Teradici PCoIP remote display protocol.

NCS Zero Clients have no local OS. The operating system resides in the data center. Therefore, there is no persistent user data, no patches, updates or antivirus software needed. Security concerns are addressed within the data center. Of the various ways to virtualize at the endpoint, zero clients prove to be a highly effective solution. PCoIP is a high performance computer display protocol used in endpoint VDI. PCoIP from HP Teradici uses advanced compression to provide end users with rich content from the cloud or data center. PCoIP securely delivers applications or workspaces to the endpoint by compressing and encrypting pixels. More than 15 million VDI endpoints use PCoIP.

To manage virtualized endpoints, NCS recommends the HP Teradici All Access Plan.
