Prior versions of Windows Embedded, including Windows Embedded 7, 8 and 8.1 products, have limited support when running on new processors and chipsets from manufacturers like Intel, AMD, NVidia, and Qualcomm. For more information, please see the Support Lifecycle FAQ.
Companies can place a high degree of confidence in solutions built on Windows Embedded Standard 7, thanks to Microsoft’s enterprise-level support and worldwide network of Windows Embedded partners. You’ll realize reduced costs in deployment, servicing and maintenance of your intelligent system with support for industry standards, and Microsoft desktop and server technologies. And devices built with Windows Embedded Standard 7 software development tools can easily hook into existing enterprise infrastructure, allowing you to extend your existing investments in management beyond PCs and servers to specialized devices.
Leverage the industry expertise of Microsoft’s partner community to deploy devices that are designed specifically for your needs. Industry devices powered by Windows Embedded Standard 7 provide a reliable platform for intelligent system solutions that engage customers and help employees get more done in less time. Device makers use an extensive set of drivers, feature sets, language packs and other components of Windows Embedded Standard 7 to design solutions for use by people throughout your company, and for use with a variety of peripheral devices. With support for custom shell and branding capabilities, device makers can wrap the application in a user experience that’s secure, features your company’s brand identity and prevents the user from accessing unnecessary or unauthorized features.
Improve your company’s operational awareness by building a network of purpose-built devices that can generate new types and new streams of information. Provide remote workers with better network connectivity so they can access important information from wherever there’s an Internet connection. Enhance the remote application experience so they can get more done in less time. Tap into customer behavior to identify new business opportunities. With Windows Embedded Standard 7, you can create intelligent systems that permeate your company and provide new information that can lead to a better understanding of operations, customer perception, threats to the company’s position in the marketplace and opportunities for growth.
Reduce your time to market by taking advantage of a familiar set of tools. Support for industry technology standards makes Windows Embedded Standard 7 a sound investment for device makers looking to leverage existing skillsets. Offering the ability to boot from removable media such USB or an SD card help reduce costs and shorten development time. Your Windows Embedded-based solution offers your customers powerful security features, too; the availability of Applocker, Bitlocker and write filters helps secure data, guards against the installation of malware to the hard disk and lets enterprises control which applications people can access. In addition, Network Access Protection and support for IPv6 and IPv4 ensure that they can securely connect your device to their existing networks.
With Windows Embedded Standard 7, device makers can focus on their core competencies and develop distinct solutions based on an enterprise’s core requirements, rather than being tied to a rigid development experience. You’ll have all the resources you need to customize a solution that meets your customer’s requirements, including a wide range of driver sets and feature packages. You can configure and assemble the software image directly on the device and further customize by adding features, drivers and language packs—either to the device or the image. You can also create a user experience that features your customer’s brand and eliminates any pop-ups or notifications, giving the device user an experience that’s consistent and uninterrupted.
Help your customers accommodate a diverse workforce by creating solutions that increase their employees’ productivity. With the seamless connectivity made possible by Remote Desktop Services and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, mobile workers can access business-critical data from the field. And with DirectAccess and BranchCache, they can access their company’s network anywhere they have an Internet connection, while reducing the lag time of applications. Network management is made easier through the ability to apply group policies to embedded devices. When you connect these devices to your enterprise customers’ backend data systems, you’ll increase their operational intelligence and ultimately, their competitive edge.
