CART Implements Maxspeed Windows Terminals.
PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 4 , 2000
Maxspeed, a leading developer of thin-client devices, today announced its MaxTerm WBT has been selected as the official Windows Terminal for the Center for Advanced Research and Technology (CART) in Fresno, Calif. The Maxterms will be used by students, faculty and administrative personnel in place of traditional PCs to access common productivity applications such as Microsoft Office and Microsoft Exchange as well as specialty educational packages. These applications reside on a central server farm running Microsoft(R) Windows(R) 2000 Terminal Services and Citrix(R) MetaFrame(TM) application server software at the CART data center. "Maxspeed is committed to providing cost effective, high performance solutions to CART and to the educational environment" said Wei Ching, CEO and President of Maxspeed.
CART is the most advanced and comprehensive, education reform effort at the secondary level to date. Fifteen hundred high school juniors and seniors within the central valley will be trained on applications that are hosted at a central data center at the 75,000 square foot CART facility. As part of the program, the students will also receive working experience from participating businesses. With the knowledge, skills, and support they receive, students leave CART ready to launch their careers. Among the many key partners of CART are organizations such as Microsoft, Pacific Bell, and IBM. CART has plans to expand the operation across the country.
"We are pleased to be partnering with Maxspeed," said Bryan Dickson, Chief Technology Officer of CART. "The students at Fresno Adult School have utilized MaxTerm Windows Terminals very successfully for over a year. The units excel in both performance and price. They enable CART to provide our full compliment of applications without requiring the purchase, maintenance and continuous upgrade of PCs."
"CART's Educational ASP enables us to minimize our staffing, maintenance and PC upgrade expenses," said Pat Wright, CEO of CART. "We have entered into a 3-year agreement with Maxspeed making them the exclusive provider of Windows Terminals for CART as we expand our services to students across the country."
RYNO Technology, a Platinum-level member of the Citrix Solutions Network(TM) designed and implemented CART's Educational ASP. "We are pleased to partner with both Maxspeed and CART", said Steve Kaplan, president of RYNO. "Because students run their applications from a central data center, they can utilize a variety of devices ranging from PCs to handhelds to MaxTerms. Students have access to their own virtual PC desktops whether working in a lab at CART, at a remote high school, or at home dialing in through the Internet."
