Bleu Jour is a leading European provider of mini PCs built with Intel NUC Element products. Based in Toulouse, France (the company’s name means “blue day”), Bleu Jour needed to serve its German solution provider, OCTO IT, with a robust, fanless design for a powerful and stylish mini PC.


Bleu Jour chose modular Intel NUC Element products. They feature interchangeable, prequalified building blocks that Bleu Jour built into a uniquely stylish, fanless mini PC product line called WAVE.

Bleu Jour’s president, Jean-Christophe Agobert, calls the Intel NUC Compute Element “yet another great innovation.”


> Rapid Time to Market: The modularity of Intel NUC Element products allows Bleu Jour to design innovative mini PC solutions in about four months.

> Powerful Performance: The Intel NUC 11 Compute Element offers boundary-breaking performance with up to 11th Gen Intel Core i7/i5 processors — with or without Intel vPro technology — and connects easily to an Intel NUC Assembly Element.

> Faster Refreshes: The Intel NUC Compute Element makes it easier, less costly, and more sustainable for customers to refresh to a next-gen processor without discarding the chassis and board.

> Reliable Performance: Intel offers ongoing support and extensive reliability testing, prequalifying, and standardizing Intel NUC Element components to streamline integration and sales.

Put it all together, and you can see why OCTO IT’s CEO, Carsten Huwer, says the Intel NUC is “the top product in its class.”
