The extra functionality can be added to the entire Wyse thin-client product line, using either integrated or external add-on solutions.
Wyse Thin OS, Microsoft Windows CE, Windows XP Embedded (XPe) and Linux are among the operating systems supported on the enhanced devices.
Wyse said the new units can securely connect to any supported wireless network without requiring any driver installation or assembly.
Jeff McNaught, chief marketing officer for Wyse Technology, said, "The new wireless and smart card capabilities open up new applications for thin computing, including kiosks, internet cafes, hospitals and school rooms."
He said, "The simple, secure set-up of our Wyse wireless thin clients enables our customers to operate in places that can't be wired with traditional Ethernet."
