Beaverton Oregon - Gates computers placed
in libraries around the U.S are nearing the end of their useful
lives as PCs. To stretch the technology life cycle and save libraries
valuable resources Veicon has introduced VELP, a low cost program
that converts Gates computers to a network of V-Link terminals for
Internet access, checking email, and using MS Office tools.
For many years, Veicon has promoted the benefits of
thin client technologies: increased security and reliability, reduced
upfront and ongoing costs, as well as time saving centralized administration.
Veicon now offers a unique way for libraries between budget cycles
to easily afford a thin client upgrade by utilizing existing public
access computers. The solution entails converting one PC into a
client server with the remaining PCs converted to V-Link thin clients.
The conversion solves problems common to PCs both
new and old. Hard drive failures become a non-issue, maintenance
becomes centralized, no virus protection is required, and automatic
session login and logoff clears all traces of patron activity and
resets all settings to defaults. Veicon Technology will install
patented V-Link software on the server and quickly transform remaining
PCs to thin clients remotely.
V-Link terminals employ Veicon's patented software
technology that provides unmatched file system protection, remote
administration, and both user and system level security. V-Link
systems require significantly lower maintenance and provide greater
security for both the users and the network than standard personal
