Avaya Approach
• Media direct to client
• Lighter load on server
• QoS model supported
• Call path unaffected by VDI architecture
“Headless Client” on end-point
• Media terminated locally
• “Remote Control” of Real Time app is extended
to ‘local client’ on the VDI end point
• Session Down UI for loss of connection scenarios
Avaya VDI Communicator

communications to thin client or PC
