LG and Microsoft today signed a license agreement to
collaborate on the development and marketing of the LG Network
Monitor, a multi computing solution with Windows MultiPoint
Server (WMS) and RemoteFX.
Under the agreement, LG will introduce a new line of Network
Monitor with RemoteFX in mid-2011, placing LG at the center of
the B2B cloud computing market. The strategy will also allow LG
to expand its presence into enterprise and mid-markets in
order to address customer needs for session virtualization and
VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure).
LG?s Network Monitor will use Microsoft?s WMS 2010 which will
allow schools to provide more students with individualized
Windows experiences at lower total cost of ownership. In
addition, LG Network Monitor working with Microsoft WMS 2010 is
designed to be simple enough for a teacher without technical
skills to set-up and manage student stations. For multilingual
needs, each student can also work independently on a Network
Monitor connected to a WMS host in a different language.
One of the major sectors for LG?s Network Monitor is education,
a market that is expected to grow to 20M units (per seat) by
2015. LG will pursue opportunities for its Network Monitor
using WMS 2010 in the global education solutions market, with a
goal of capturing 25 percent of the market by 2012 to become
the industry leader.
LG and Microsoft are also teaming up to develop an integrated
Network Monitor with RemoteFX functionality. As the RemoteFX
platform gains significantly enhanced security and management
functions, its use in conjunction with LG?s advanced Network
Monitor technology will enable LG to expand its monitor
solutions to cloud computing in the enterprise market. Cloud
computing is virtual-based computing which allows users to
access the exact infrastructure, platform and software services
they need via the internet in a market expected to grow 1.2M
units by 2012.
