Skype for Business and Horizon 7.3!

With the release of VMware Horizon 7.3 VMware is adding more features to the Microsoft Skype integration. The Microsoft Skype integration is designed to offload the hosted environment when making video calls to other Skype users. The local client will process the call and handle the video/audio streams while the end user still works in a centralized desktop.

Until now this was only available for virtual desktops (VDI) but with the 7.3 version this will also be available for an RDSH hosted solution. Here is a quick overview of the new features offered from VMware Horizon 7.3 with the Microsoft Skype integration.

  • Multiparty conferencing
  • E911
  • Customized ringtones
  • Forward Error Connection (ECC)
  • Quality of Experience (QOE)
  • RDSH support as mentioned before
  • Call park and pickup
  • USB Desk phone

Client side things are changing as well. Where previously only Windows clients were supported now also Linux is and Max is in a private beta.
