Benchmarking Adaptive Transport for Citrix HDX

Now with the release of XenDesktop 7.12 I’ve been quite busy testing the new preview of Adaptive Transport for HDX. Now one thing that it took some time for me to understand is that as it states “Transport Protocol” so you can still use ThinWire for instance over Adaptive Transport just like you did before. So for instance you can do NVENC with full-screen H.264 encoding on GPU , and deliver that via Thinwire over Adaptive Transport Protocol.

Now this new protocol unlike ALL other versious of HDX uses UDP as the default transport layer, and is aimed at where you have high latency / low packet drop scenarioes. So for instance if you are moving to cloud based infrastructure and your Citrix setup sits about 100+ MS away from your endpoint, chances are that this new transport protocol will improve the end-user experience. Now for information this next-gen protocol uses UDT.

UDT uses UDP to transfer bulk data with its own reliability control and congestion control mechanisms.

So how does it far against native TCP setup?
