Citrix Branch Repeater

Citrix Branch Repeater enhances and optimises bandwidth between sites

Citrix Branch Repeater enhances and optimises bandwidth between sites by utilising Citrix HDX (High Definition Experience) technologies providing local caching and de-duplication on site. When a client requests a file from a remote site the branch repeater examines the rules and Quality of Service, provided the rules are met, the branch repeater will compress and send the file to the client, showing a marked improvement over normal traffic. The file is then cached on the local branch repeater, if other clients request the file; they will receive the file almost instantly. ICA traffic is also optimised and users are able to work over a 1.4s latency with the repeater where before this would have been unusable. Clients no longer notice the latency and remote sites on average are able to increase user headcount without increasing bandwidth.
