Österreichische Bundesbahnen deploys Matrox Extio to enable remote desktops of up to 10 displays to better manage operations
Österreichische Bundesbahnen (ÖBB; Austrian Federal Railways) already automates railway traffic across a distance of over 5000 km. Adding hundreds of meters between employee desks and their computers to enhance system-wide operations was an easy decision to make, made easier through the use of Matrox Extio F2408 KVM extenders. Solutions-provider ARGE VLZ, an Austrian traffic-monitoring-market leader, was initially contracted to address ÖBB’s remote-computing needs. The task at hand—to optimize ÖBB employees’ workspace by minimizing heat emissions and background noise while maximizing desktop space—was technologically demanding to say the least. Asked to outfit over 100 desks spanning five offices with a high-performance external solution, ARGE VLZ selected the Matrox Extio with little hesitation.
