IGEL Tech Memories from Sébastien Pérusat – Jan/Feb 2021
Written by: Sébastien Pérusat, Director of Community at Senior Engineer at IGEL + IGEL Community FELLOW!
Welcome to my new monthly technical recap. As it is already March, I will take the liberty to bring you up to speed on the first two months of the year and then monthly moving forward.
What a start to the year. IGEL achieved amazing things in only two months! Guess what? It's more than I had expected, and I hope you will feel the same.

Awards: IGEL Disrupt: IGEL Insiders, VIPs, and Fellows are now named for their outstanding performance in 2020. Please join me in congratulating them! Please keep it up!

IGEL Community Events
January Community Meetup: the PI is coming! In this Meetup, we discussed the newly announced IGEL RPI4 Raspberry Pi device in cooperation with NComputing.
We also sat in on an IGEL Ready webinar with IGEL's IGEL Ready partners. Over the coming months, we will be adding the IGEL Ready partners to the community, so you have a place to communicate with the partners directly, ask them questions, learn about their solutions, and more.
Our February Meetup featured 'me'. I showed you how I reverse engineer things and solve common IGEL-related support issues. This was part 1 of 2 and featured debugging and command line.
IGEL Technology Partners
As mentioned above, we are adding new Technology Partners all the time. The following partners joined the IGEL Community. Visit them on the IGEL Community on Slack.
Lenovo (coming soon)
New Papers & Videos
The IGEL Software Suite Step-by-Step Getting Started Guide was updated. It includes the latest releases of all products, including an updated ICG section. Please check it out!
We released a NEW IGEL PRI4 (Raspberry Pi) Step-by-Step Getting Started Guide. As usual, we tried to give you all the information you need. This Guide covers "from unboxing until the device is configured."
Advanced Services created a Unified Communication in a Box Getting started Guide, explaining how to set up different Unified Communications solutions on our IGEL OS and server-side. Check out the latest best practices there!
IGEL Feature Proposals board was launched. This Feature Proposals Board will not only give you the ability to share your product ideas, but you can vote for existing items. Your votes help us understand which suggestions/ideas are essential to you.
IGEL Roadmaps Documents were published to the IGEL Community.
On February 25th, We launched the IGEL OS RPI4 on NComputing RX420(IGEL) hardware! Finally, IGEL is coming back to the ARM Platform. It is excellent to have this platform as part of IGEL's offerings and offers a great price to performance ratio and unique use case. It is highly recommended.
We launched the UD Pocket 2. Finally, USB C is covered by our smallest endpoint.
