IGEL Tech Memories from Sébastien Pérusat – April 2021

April is over and I’m missing the April fools already… Welcome to my monthly technical recap. We covered a lot of topics in different sections of our product lines, where should I start? Tough decision… I guess the Unified Communication part is the most dynamic part of our Firmware, it overtook easily the Citrix Workspace App release speed and caught most of our attention (please check out the latest 11.05.133!). Do great things and speak about them, let’s do that!

IGEL Award Winners (INSIDERS & VIPs)


We shared the following in the IGEL INSIDERS & VIPs group, a private channel for award winners who have selflessly raised the bar through their contributions to others and community leadership:

  1. IGEL Insider: 13th of April: IGEL INSIDER/VIP Briefing - with Jed Ayres: Our CEO asked you what you want from IGEL? How can we get better?

  2. We share a lot of Roadmap information there and known issues. We miss you there, please join us by being active and helping others.

It felt more but March was a really tough month with new products in every sector, so I shouldn’t complain. April was a great time, and May will be even better !!
