Citrix Unplugged at CeBIT 2001 Thursday 1 February 2001 PDF Print Application Serving Software Leader to Demo Effective Wireless Connectivity to Enterprise Applications on Handheld Devices At CeBIT 2001, Citrix Systems Inc., a global leader in application server software and services, will show how its industry partners and customers can leverage Citrix technologies to enable secure wireless access to the latest enterprise applications. On Stand B07 in Hall 3, the company will demonstrate wireless deployment of 32-bit business applications to medium and small form factors such as the Compaq iPAQ Pocket PC. The demonstrations will show the effectiveness of Citrix' bandwidth-efficient technologies in providing, rich, interactive application access over today's and tomorrow's wireless network connections. In addition, Citrix will be making an announcement regarding its latest Independent Computing Architecture (ICA®) Client, developed for version 6.0 of the Symbian platform. Symbian's licensees are currently developing a new generation of advanced personal devices based on this new version. "CeBIT 2001 will see the mobile device coming of age as a truly viable option for ubiquitous, real-time application access and data manipulation," said John Glendenning, director of Citrix iBusiness Europe. "Citrix technologies, such as MetaFrame and NFuse, will be at the core of successful application delivery in this space through their ability to provide a full- featured, rich application experience over a low-bandwidth wireless connection." Citrix technologies, including the recently announced Citrix® Extranet Virtual Private Network security solution, Citrix NFuse application delivery software for the Web, and Citrix MetaFrame, the company's core application server software, already allow users to securely access mission-critical business applications on wireless operating systems such as EPOC 5 and Microsoft's Pocket PC platform. About Citrix ICA With more than 24 million users worldwide and 6 million concurrent user licenses since its introduction in 1995, the Citrix Independent Computing Architecture (ICA) is an emerging industry standard for server-based computing. Citrix ICA technology includes a server software component, a network protocol component, and a client software component. On the server, ICA separates application logic from the user interface and executes 100% of the application on the server. The ICA network protocol transports keystrokes, mouse clicks and screen updates over standard protocols to the client, typically consuming 10-15 kilobits-per-second of network bandwidth. On the client, users see and work only with the application's interface.
