Sennheiser Completes IGEL Interoperability

Andreas Bach

Sennheiser has certified its product interoperability with IGEL, an endpoint management software and thin clients for the secure enterprise.

The new partnership ensures the full compatibility of Sennheiser’s headsets and speakerphone solutions with IGEL OS-powered UD6 and UD5, UD Pocket and Universal Desktop Converter, together with the Citrix HDX Realtime Optimization Pack for Microsoft Skype for Business.

Andreas Bach, President at Sennheiser Communications A/S, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with IGEL and to be working together to offer our mutual customers a seamless, premium user experience. IGEL is a leading provider of unified endpoint management software and thin clients and IGEL’s commitment to high quality solutions fits well with Sennheiser’s value proposition.” IGEL OS simplifies access to virtualized desktops and applications. The OS standardizes endpoints and provides for adaptive configuration and granular control, while providing users with a familiar workspace.

IGEL solutions are suitable for office applications, video and multimedia presentations and, as Matthias Haas, CTO at IGEL explains, increasingly for virtual conferencing in virtual environments: “Communications in virtual environments relies on seamless integration of compatible software and hardware devices. All IGEL OS 10 devices are already equipped with Citrix RTME (RealTime Media Engine) for Skype for Business for easy deployment. Full interoperability with Sennheiser headsets and speakerphones will enhance the communication experience and ensure successful user adoption and satisfaction.”
