Citrix SD-WAN now optimizes the experience for users accessing hosted or managed desktops, SaaS including Office 365, and more. When adding an SD-WAN virtual appliance in Azure, Citrix SD-WAN can prioritize the critical streams of HDX traffic, such as real-time audio, between the offices and the SD-WAN instance in Azure. Quality of Experience (QoE) monitoring provides networking teams deep visibility into desktop sessions, HDX users, and virtual apps. For Microsoft Teams, since Citrix optimizes and redirects the traffic to the local user device, SD-WAN can steer this traffic directly to the cloud avoiding unnecessary network hops that result in latency.
Networking teams can configure and manage Citrix SD-WAN from a single platform, allowing them to view, monitor, and adjust bandwidth usage quickly and to ensure the best user experience. Citrix SD-WAN for Azure and “Works with Office 365” help deliver the modern desktop. Citrix SD-WAN integrates with Azure to automate policy control and deployment for reliable cloud application delivery over the WAN.
