N-series | Citrix® Ready HDX™ Verified System-on-Chip (SoC) Thin Clients

100% of the HDX experience at 1/3 the cost.

Since its initial release in May of 2012, hundreds of customer organizations have selected N-series Citrix® Ready HDX Verified System-on-Chip (SoC) Thin Clients as their endpoint solution for Citrix deployments.

Momentum continues to grow as a result of the N-series delivering 100% of the amazingly rich HDX experience at approximately 1/3 the cost of typical HDX-capable PCs and traditional thin client devices. Powered by our third-generation dual core Numo™ 3 System-on-Chip (SoC), N-series devices support and simplify XenDesktop®, XenApp®, and VDI-in-a-Box® desktop and application virtualization deployments with full HD video while using less than 5 watts of power.

Centralized Management and Support
With web based centralized device management and mission-critical 24x7 premium support, N-series thin clients from NComputing dramatically lower both price and complexity compared to alternative endpoints and transform the economics of enterprise desktop virtualization by enabling organizations to rapidly accelerate their Citrix and HDX deployment adoption.
