Wyse Technology Receives Technology & Learning 2006 Award of Excellence

Wyse Technology, the global leader in thin computing, is a recipient of Technology & Learning's 2006 Awards of Excellence. The team of 35 education judges tested more than 110 entries, and Wyse Streaming Manager was one of those honored and singled out for distinction.

These awards recognize innovative applications that break new ground in some important way and best-of-breed examples that demonstrate clear superiority over similar products in the market. To see the complete list of product award winners visit .

Wyse Streaming Manager (WSM) automates the management of student desktops, enabling the use of the broadest array of PC-based educational software titles, including rich animation, multimedia sound and video, on simple, stateless, thin computers. Thin computers or PCs can be used on the desktop, so the student experience is identical to that on a PC, but with WSM, the experience is secure, controlled, and less costly to schools.

"As a pioneer in thin computing solutions, we are honored to be acknowledged by this prestigious award from Technology & Learning for outstanding education technology," said Bill Platt, executive vice president, Products, Wyse Technology. "Wyse Streaming Manager enables schools to further enhance the computing experience for students, teachers, and administrators."

WSM can be deployed alone or with Citrix Presentation Server or VMware VDI technologies, to eliminate the hassles surrounding PC management, break/fix activities, and provide teachers with greater control over what is done by students at each desk. WSM provides reports to teachers as to "who did what, when, and for how long", so student activities are well understood. Because the student desktop has no hard disk, but is in every other way a PC, costs are reduced, useful life is extended, and student learning benefits from the latest in OS and application technology.

Wyse Streaming Manager was profiled in Technology & Learning's recent 2006 Awards Issue.
