Chassis Plans Releases CPZ-156T Rugged Zero Client

The CPZ-156T is a patent pending Zero Client offering a 15.6″ LCD with a multi-touch touch screen, Teradici PCoIP and Power over Ethernet is a rugged mil-grade enclosure.

San Diego, CA, February 17, 2016 — Chassis Plans today announced the worldwide release of the CPZ-156T Zero Client at AFCEA West in San Diego. The CPZ-156T Zero Client is the first such device powered by Power over Ethernet including an LCD display and is patent pending.

The rugged CPZ-156T provides a lightweight portable Zero Client including a 15.6” TFT 1920 x 1080 LCD with LED backlight and borosilicate strengthened multi-touch touch-screen overlay in a 15” x 9.5” x 1.5” 6 pound aircraft grade aluminum package. Two USB ports allow connection to external keyboards, mice, etc.

Designed be a state-of-the-art secure information device, the CPZ-156T is designed from the beginning for security, first and foremost. Utilizing the industry standard PCoIP™ Protocol (Teradici Chipset), Chassis Plans’ Zero Clients are designed to be compliant with currently available desktop Zero Clients but in a rugged form factor for deployment in the field. To further ensure security, the Chassis Plans’ CPZ-156T is powered through an IEEE- 802.3at Power over Ethernet connection. This means a single push-pull connector is all that is required to lose all display information on the Ruggedized CPX-156T Client. As in all true Zero Client architectures, no information is ever contained on the CPZ-156T; it is just an encrypted rendering of the actual Virtualized Desktop (VDI) on the server.

The CPZ-156T Rugged Zero Client offers the following benefits:

-Robust Network Protection
-Comprehensive Patch/Version Management
-Rugged Design
-Power over Ethernet
-Revision-Controlled Components
-Optional Carrying Case
-Compliance with Army Approved Thin Client/Zero Client Computing Reference Architecture v1

“In order to address a need for a Secure Ruggedized Data Terminal for the DOD, a system architecture was devised to provide a single connection to a PCoIP based Zero Client. This was made possible by selecting ultra-low power components including laptop display and touch panel as well as a low power Zero Client. This enabled implementing the IEEE-802.3at standard which provides for Ethernet connectivity, power and Human Interface with a 25.5 Watt Power Envelope.” said Tony Bowers, FAE for Chassis Plans. “The unit is designed to be the state of art in security as there is only one connection to the device and the unit is tethered. The moment that link is broken, there stops Ethernet activity as well as removing power from the device which requires re-authentication once the connection is re-established. This follows the Army Approved Thin Client/Zero Client Computing Reference Architecture v1. Dated 1 May 2013 which is to be used for SIPRNet and NiPRNet implementations.”
