Cisco launches next phase of its VXI

Announces endpoints that enable high-quality voice and video in virtual desktop environments

By CBR Staff Writer

Networking and communications equipment manufacturer Cisco has launched the next phase of its Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI) with a series of offerings.

The company claimed that the innovations can deliver uncompromised desktop virtualisation experiences. Cisco also announced endpoints that enable high-quality voice and video in virtual desktop environments – a development, that it says could help redefine collaboration in the virtual workspace.

Cisco has also made other announcements. It said that the company has entered into a broad strategic alliance agreement with Citrix. Cisco said as the first deliverable of this collaboration, Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) will be optimised for Citrix XenDesktop, which will help customers reduce bandwidth necessary to deploy desktops virtually over wide area networks (WAN).

The worldwide hosted virtual desktop (HVD) market is expected to reach 70 million units, or 15% of enterprise desktops and laptops by 2014. Cisco said to further accelerate this rapid market growth, customers need to ensure users receive a rich high-definition experience for voice and video, and an integrated systems approach that reduces the costs and complexity of deployment.

Cisco said that its VXI, an open, validated virtual workspace offering, integrates products and technologies across Cisco’s network-based architectures- from Collaboration to Borderless Networks to the Data Centre as well as from partners- to help deliver a flexible, highly secure infrastructure with exceptional user experiences and unsurpassed business value.
