TinyTERM Enterprise for Android

Product Overview

TinyTERM Enterprise for Android combines third-generation secure terminal emulation with a highly configurable industrial web browser to allow creation and deployment of purpose-based devices requiring access to legacy hosts or HTML5/Javascript applications in modern web environments.

The included secure SSH, SSL and telnet IBM/VT/ANSI/Wyse/ADDS terminal emulation provides macros, printing and automation capabilities with scanner support. TinyTERM Enterprise provides enterprise deployment capabilities including configuration push, user interface lockdown and extensive configuration import/export management.

TinyTERM's Industrial Browser includes comprehensive scanning capabilities for scanning bar codes into input fields and redirecting QR scan codes to web pages. Full compatibility with Safari with extensions for locking down the user interface and custom onscreen keyboards allows deployment of existing web applications into purposed environments.

TinyTERM Enterprise is designed for corporate IT departments to create purposed solutions for non-technical users or uses where pre-configured automated application startup is required.

Chrome OS

Chrome OS devices such as Chromebooks and Chromeboxes provide a lower-cost alternative to desktop PCs. TinyTERM Enterprise is fully supported on Chrome OS, allowing users to switch devices seamlessly.

Session Persistence

TinyTERM Enterprise TE Server provides session persistence for TinyTERM Enterprise for iOS and Android clients. This allows TinyTERM Enterprise to connect through the TE Server, which maintains the connection to the UNIX, Linux or mainframe host.

This is especially useful in situations where the mobile device may not have a reliable WiFi connection. If the mobile device loses its connection to TinyTERM Enterprise TE Server, the connection to the host is still available. Reconnecting causes the existing login to come back up on the mobile device, in the same state where it was left off.

Once configured, this is transparent to the user. The connection looks and acts exactly the same as a direct (non-proxy) connection. But it has the added benefit of stability in all circumstances.

License Proxy

TinyTERM Enterprise TE Server can be used as a proxy for the Century Software License Server (LCS service). Using the license proxy can allow for more detailed tracking of clients by optionally forwarding the private IP addresses of devices behind a firewall.

The proxy may also be used as a means to provide access to the license server in environments where the ability to make outgoing connections is limited, as long as the server is hosted on a machine that can make outgoing connections to Century's license server; e.g., a machine in front of a corporate firewall.

In larger corporations, this allows tracking of the internal IP address from each location instead of the gateway IP for the corporation.

Screen Modernization

Century offers a variety of comprehensive onscreen touch input options to make the user experience the best it can be. Our screen-matching capability displays distinctive keyboards based on the content of the screen. We include an array of pre-designed keyboards and also the ability to customize button size and placement.

Our large number of touch input options allow creating a simple and easy way for users to efficiently operate the device.

Keyboard Swipe

Swipe between keyboard layouts with a simple gesture. Just drag your finger left or right across any keyboard to switch to the next custom keyboard.

Create numerous custom keyboards to aid in data entry and device use on a per-screen basis. Simply use one finger to swipe to select the appropriate keyboard for the screen you are on. Want it to be even easier for users? See Screen-Sensitive Keyboards below for more detailed information.

Screen-Sensitive Keyboards

Create customized keyboards per screen that display only the needed keys for that specific screen. This allows modification of not only the keys displayed, but also the size and location of the keys on the keyboard. This creates streamlined functionality and increased productivity.

Custom Keyboard Colors

Change the foreground and background colors for the on-screen keyboard, and for individual keys. The keys can even change color when they're pressed. Color-code keys for specific tasks, improving processes with quick identification and data entry. Combined with screen-sensitive keyboards, priority tasks become easier to recognize at a glance.

Deployment Options

Century supports deployment through the Google Play store, as well as the more flexible Enterprise ID method of deployment. Century´s License & Configuration Server supports automatic license registration and initial custom configuration push at install time. Deployment is also supported through all major MDM and MAM vendors.
