Citrix introduced the EDT Lossy protocol in its 2308 release. This protocol offers a robust solution to the common audio challenges faced in remote and hybrid work scenarios. Unlike traditional protocols that struggle in challenging network conditions, EDT Lossy protocol is engineered to ensure seamless audio quality even in adverse conditions. Whether an employee is transitioning between WiFi access points, working in areas with low bandwidth, or facing significant packet loss, EDT Lossy steps in to ensure an uninterrupted high-quality audio experience.
Citrix’s EDT Lossy protocol is a loss-tolerant transport protocol designed for real-time multimedia experiences during packet loss. It’s a part of Citrix’s Enlightened Data Transport (EDT), aiming for consistent performance on challenging connections while increasing server scalability through reduced CPU usage. The protocol’s loss-tolerant mode provides stable connections during network congestion. While both EDT and EDT Lossy perform well, EDT Lossy offers improved audio quality in situations with packet loss.
