Saving Bandwidth with Citrix Branch Repeater – See for Yourself
Over the past two years Citrix has aggressively been investing in optimizing the delivery of virtual applications and desktops to branch and mobile users with Branch Repeater. This is accomplished with HDX WAN Optimization, which maximizes XenApp and XenDesktop performance across a WAN by compressing, caching and prioritizing ICA traffic.
For the branch and mobile users, the benefits are obvious and tangible. XenDesktop and XenApp sessions launch faster, printing takes less time, video is experienced in HD, and file transfers are magnitudes quicker.
The bottom line – users have a LAN like experience and can get more done.
The other side of the benefits equation is the bandwidth savings you get with Branch Repeater. Network administrators and IT budget owners are especially interested in this, because Branch Repeater enables you to do more with your existing WAN circuits. You can read all about this in a collection of whitepapers, which articulate the benefits of optimizing XenDesktop, XenApp, and native apps such as Outlook and SharePoint.
