HDX Enlightened Data Transport Support

Dec 20, 2017

Enlightened Data Transport (EDT) support for NetScaler Gateway ensures a high definition in-session user experience of virtual desktops for users running Citrix Receiver.

Also, end-to end encryption with DTLS 1.0 for EDT termination between Receiver and VDA is facilitated. For more information on DTLS configuration, click https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/netscaler/12/ssl/config-ssloffloading/config-dtls-vserver.html.

EDT enabled NetScaler Gateway delivers a good user experience on both LAN and WAN conditions, without any administrative or user configuration when roaming from one to the other. The benefit is most visible in high-latency networks with moderate packet loss, where user experience would generally lag with alternatives. Fore more information, see HDX.
