Cisco Jabber & Microsoft Skype for Business, and other unified communications solutions, are some of the solutions often requested in virtual desktop deployments. Citrix & VMware have both made some key advancements on the server side, i.e. Citrix HDX RealTime Optimization Pack (RTME) & VMware Horizon Virtualization Pack for Skype for Business.
Most of the client side solutions to ‘offload’ some of this processing has been focused on using Windows, or Windows Embedded, based endpoints. The request of many customers is to simplify & secure the endpoint as much as possible, which can lead to using a non-Windows based endpoint and running Windows 10/7 in the data center.
Dell Wyse just released Wyse ThinOS 8.6 which includes support for Cisco Jabber Softphone for VDI for Citrix and Skype for Business on VMware Horizon.
You can see more on these announcements here and some technical details in the Wyse ThinOS 8.6 release notes here.
