Fujitsu Optimizes Unified Communications With New All-in-one PCs

  • Integrated features in two new all-in-one ESPRIMO X PCs enhance unified communications
  • Low Power Active Mode reduces power consumption while enabling “Always On” instant communication
  • Busy Light function indicates users’ presence status for more efficient communications

Fujitsu today announces two new all-in-one X-line desktop PCs with integrated features that fully support Unified Communications and Collaboration (UC&C) environments. Fujitsu’s ESPRIMO X923 and ESPRIMO X923-T take unified communications and collaboration to the next level, advancing Fujitsu’s vision of a human centric intelligent society with technology that focuses on the needs of the user and on improving productivity.

More than ever before, enterprises need intelligent tools that enable a smarter, more integrated approach to communications. But due to so many communications mechanisms (email, voicemail, instant messaging and more), productivity can suffer when people are out of reach. In addition, many unified communications and collaboration environments require the use of a wide range of additional-cost accessories such as headsets, loudspeakers and handsets. With the new Multimedia module1, Fujitsu has integrated all these features into its all-in-one ESPRIMO X PCs, making unified communications easier and more effective. A busy light function indicates the user’s presence status and the touch-screen option is perfect for applications such as interactive White Board sharing.

The Fujitsu ESPRIMO X series also provides an elegant solution for users who need the full functionality of a space-saving desktop, but also require energy saving and constant connectivity. Both the ESPRIMO X923 and ESPRIMO X923-T can be switched to Low Power Active Mode (LPAM), which shuts down power-hungry applications such as browsers and office programs, effectively almost turning off the device. A network connection remains in active so that office programs can remain in sync.

In Low Power Active Mode mode, the ESPRIMO X923 and ESPRIMO X923-T draw just enough energy to perform critical background tasks, yet are still immediately available for incoming communications. This is a reduced cost approach to the Always On approach, which can run up power bills when desktop PCs are left running at full power, 24x7. Fujitsu’s LPAM means ESPRIMO X PCs use less than five watts per hour while still running Microsoft Windows 8.1 Professional – some 45 percent below the system’s maximum power consumption in standard idle mode2. This ensures that enterprises can cut their power bills and replace legacy telephony equipment with unified communications-enabled PCs.

Fujitsu also offers Managed Collaboration Services to support the entire Unified Communications and Collaboration solution stack. Managed Collaboration allows customization and parameterization, integrating and managing Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Lync and file services based on service classes with different availability levels and sizing options. For organizations looking to update their ICT environment, Fujitsu provides round-the-clock services, while Managed Collaboration provides a cost-effective solution with pay-as-you-grow options and a transparent cost structure.
