Devon Terminal Operating System (DeTOS) Dell Edition is an embeded Thin Client Operating System designed to be simple, secure, and centrally manageable. DeTOS can be used to access hosted desktops using Microsoft Remote Desktop Services, VMware View, Citrix XenApp or XenDesktop, web based applications, and more.


  • Simple: Configuring a session out of the box is quick and painless using the intuitive web based control panel. The same control panel can be used either locally from the thin client or remotely from the management software

  • Modern: DeTOS can connect to hosted desktops using industry's best protocols including PCoIP, Citric ICA Client, Citrix XenDesktop, rDesktop (RDP) or Windows Terminal Services, and VMware View Client. DeTOS also includes a built-in browser that allows accessing web-based applications or kiosk usage.

  • Centrally Managed: DeTOS-based terminals can be centrally managed using Echo Thin Client management software.

    • Echo is shipped as a virtual appliance, so it is easy to set up
    • Echo can automatically discover and inventory the thin clients on your network.
    • Echo has the concept of default profile. Using a default profile, additional thin clients are automatically configured when you plug them into your network.
    • Echo allows individual profiles for different users, including specific Connections, Thin Client Settings, Passwords, and Customizable Desktop Icons.
    • Echo allows you to update the thin client's firmware. Updates can be scheduled to happen outside of production hours.
    • Echo allows you to remotely take control of thin clients to help troubleshooting end user issues.
