Citrix Suite Network Optimisation & Application Acceleration
- Citrix Branch Repeater
Citrix Branch Repeater is a WAN optimisation solution which is used to accelerate application, desktop and data delivery to branch office and mobile users. Without altering the current network infrastructure, Branch Repeater appliances also reduce WAN bandwidth requirements. Once in place, appliances automatically discover other appliances on the network and tune themselves to optimise WAN links based on network conditions, data flows and applications used.
While Citrix Branch Repeater does optimise use of WAN links, focus is given to improving an end users experience when using virtual applications, virtual desktops and multimedia. SmartAcceleration technology is used to deliver a high quality of experience (QoE) and availability while reducing bandwidth consumption. Management is simple and IT is given granular visibility of the enhanced prioritisation and control of this traffic.
Why use Branch Repeater?
Only Branch Repeater provides the ability to fully accelerate, control and prioritise XenApp and XenDesktop service traffic that traverses the WAN. HDX (ICA) connections to branches are identified and prioritised based on branch office locations, desktop groups and published applications. Branch Repeater provides local caching and de-duplication of data across multiple XenDesktop and XenApp sessions. In conjunction with XenApp and XenDesktop, Branch Repeater also senses real-time network and traffic conditions and adapts to provide optimal delivery to branch offices. This allows IT to support more users in each branch office without upgrading WAN bandwidth.
SmartAcceleration technology accelerates the delivery of desktops, applications, multimedia and other data. Traffic is prioritised and shaped service based on granular policies to deliver the best user experience. Branch office and mobile users can experience LAN-like access to all services and resources across the WAN.
Consolidate services to the datacentre from the branch office to simplify remote branch office IT management. The Branch Repeater VPX virtual appliance can be used to reduce server hardware footprint. An integrated branch acceleration appliance which includes essential Windows services (file, print, DHCP, DNS, WINS, Domain Controller, Active Directory and DFS) can be deployed at the branch office to replace existing server hardware to reduce maintenance costs.
