Lowers  Cost  

•  Point to point audio and video

•  No compromise voice and video quality

•  Cisco VXI Unified Communications solution first to support

•  Will support Microsoft Lync 2010 in XenDesktop 5.6 FP1

Page 9: What's new in XenDesktop and XenApp

HDX RealTime: Complementary approaches

• Generic: Media-over-ICA • Unmodified softphone ○  Very broad app compatibility J

• Audio-video traffic transported over ICA

• Citrix audio/video codecs, echo cancellation, jitter buffering, etc., to maximize audio-video quality

• Optimized: Peer-to-peer • Softphone modified or hooked to offload media processing to user device ○  Maximum server scalability J

• Real-time audio-video traffic bypasses Citrix server ○  Zero degradation J
