Ace Computers' Announces its New NUC Micro Desktops for Schools

ADDISON, Ill., Jan 24, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- What if schools could convert their computer labs into much-needed classroom space, be nearly immune to technology theft and save money in the process Ace Computers' tiny, but powerful Vision Pico NUC micro desktops promise just that and much more for a price that leaves laptops in the dust. The basic palm-sized device includes a motherboard, processor and case, but no memory, storage or operating system. Custom upgrades are nearly limitless.

Ace Computers' new Vision Pico is based on Intel's cutting-edge Next Unit of Computing (NUC) technology. The NUC features an Intel Core i3 processor in a highly customizable package. Like all Intel mobile CPUs it uses the full Intel HD 4000 GPU. The benefits to schools include: Less Need for a Computer Lab: Since the Vision Pico NUC is both highly portable and can be unobtrusively installed on an individual desk--it seamlessly brings computing power into the classroom.

Less Vulnerability to Theft: The NUC can be bolted in place (for example the underside of a desk).

Smaller Footprint: At roughly 4.6 by 4.4 by 1.5 inches these devices free up precious surface space.

Significantly Less Energy Draw: The entire system consumes less than 50W of power. This means "always on" is not a problem.

Rugged: The tough case and quality components make this device hard to damage.

Lower Price: When compared with a laptop...the Vision Pico NUC with either a touchscreen monitor or monitor and keyboard, still comes out ahead.

John Samborski, Ace Computers' CEO said, "Our long-term partnership with Intel is a major reason that we stay on the cutting-edge. The Vision Pico NUC is a great example. We saw the possibilities and benefits to schools immediately and used our expertise to develop custom NUCs that will maximize benefits for our clients." Typical Vision Pico NUC specs include: Processor: Intel(R) Core i3-3217U (soldered down) Chipset: Intel QS77 Express Chipset Memory: Dual channel SODIMM DDR3 1066/1333 MHz; 2 SODIMM, 16GB maximum Graphics: Dual HDMI Expandability: 2 x PCIe mini slots (1x half-length & 1x full/half-length); 2 x Internal USB 2.0 via 2x5 header; 2 x USB 2.0 connectors on back panel; 1 x USB 2.0 connector on the front panel Connectivity: Intel 10 / 100 / 1000 Network Connection Additional Features: Windows 7 and Windows 8 logo; wireless option via mini PCIe card; Bluetooth option via mini PCIe card; supports new mobile SATA (SSD) card via full-length PCIe mini card; compatible with Linux (Fedora, Ubuntu, OpenSUSE); 19V DC power input (external power supply) While there are no analog audio connectors, audio output can be routed through an HDMI port.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
