This article provides an overview of the Unified Communication software and hardware solutions that are supported by IGEL OS.


Virtual Desktop Optimizations

The virtual desktop optimizations provide the endpoint device with a media engine and redirect the audio and video streams so that they are exchanged directly between the endpoint devices. This results in higher performance and a lower server load.

For Citrix Sessions

For Horizon Sessions

Local Installation on the Endpoint Device with a Custom Partition

In contrast to the virtual desktop optimizations, where the Unified Communication apps are installed on the VDI server, this approach involves installing the apps on the endpoint device. This is achieved by using the Custom Partition mechanism of IGEL OS. 

For building a Custom Partition by yourself, see the Custom Partition Tutorial.

You can acquire any of the following Custom Partitions free of cost; just ask your IGEl contact:
