Cisco Jabber VDI
The Cisco Jabber® platform streamlines communications and enhances productivity on many devices, including PCs, Macs, tablets, and smartphones. It unifies presence, instant messaging, video, voice, voice messaging, and conferencing capabilities securely into one client on your desktop.
But what if your organization is implementing virtualization strategies? Now you can use the Cisco Jabber Softphone for VDI (JVDI), formerly known as Virtualization Experience Media Edition (VXME), to deliver the rich, uncompromised user experience of the Cisco Jabber platform to virtualized desktops in addition to your PCs, Macs, tablets, and smartphones.
In virtualized environments, the Cisco Jabber application is deployed in the hosted virtual desktop in the data center, while Cisco JVDI runs on the local thin client. With the Cisco Jabber application running on your hosted virtual desktop, you can see presence status, send an instant message, check voice messages, or collaborate via voice and video calls. Cisco JVDI processes voice and video traffic locally and routes from point to point between clients, bypassing the data center. This feature eliminates the inefficient “hairpin” effect in which messages between two endpoints are routed through the data center, rather than traveling directly from the sender to the receiver. With this optimized architecture, users in virtualized settings benefit from the same uncompromised experience they enjoy with the traditional Cisco Jabber for Windows solution.
