Citrix HDX Adaptive Transport and EDT: ICA’s New Default Transport Protocol – Part I

As members of the Citrix HDX team, we’ve been wanting, for a long time, to write a blog post about HDX Adaptive Transport and Enlightened Data Transport (EDT) protocol; ICA is our favorite protocol and these are some of its biggest improvements ever.
NOTE: This is a companion to the recent post written by Derek Thorslund, Director of Product Management for HDX.

In this two-part series, we will clear up misconceptions around EDT and explain what are we doing, why we are doing it, and where are we headed.

In the Q4 2017 release of XenApp & XenDesktop, HDX Adaptive Transport will be set to “preferred,” by default, so receivers will use EDT whenever possible. Therefore, we want to give you a thorough background on the enhancements. We always like to start with a little bit of history, because it is essential to understanding the present.
