Cisco Virtualization Experience Client 4000 (VXC 4000) is part of the Cisco Virtualization Experience Client portfolio and is delivered as part of the Cisco Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI) solution.
Cisco VXI delivers the next-generation virtual workspace by unifying virtual desktops, voice, and video and enabling IT to provide a flexible, secure, and uncompromised converged infrastructure and end-user experience.
The Cisco VXC 4000 is part of a class of desktop virtualization endpoints that combine virtual desktops with rich-media capabilities. Workers demand access to data, applications, and services anywhere, at any time, and across a diversity of operating systems, device form factors, networking environments, and work preferences. At the same time, workers expect an uncompromised and unencumbered user experience, with comprehensive media and collaboration services.
Cisco meets these requirements with the Cisco VXC endpoints. These endpoints provide workers with secure, real-time access to business applications and content, any time and anywhere, without compromise of the rich collaborative user experience for which Cisco is known.
The Cisco VXC 4000 is a software appliance that enables users to enjoy the benefits of virtual desktops without compromising a high-quality collaborative voice user experience. In addition to the Cisco VXC 4000 software appliance, the Cisco VXC portfolio of endpoints includes zero clients, a thin client, and an enterprise tablet.
Whether your company supports a "bring your own PC" model by providing secure access to a remote hosted virtual desktop or plans to repurpose old PCs as thin clients, the Cisco VXC 4000 enables uncompromised collaboration without the latency and productivity inefficiencies of "hairpining" communications back and forth to and from the data center.
When you connect to your hosted virtual desktop using citrix receiver or VMware view for Windows, the Cisco VXC 4000 runs locally and transforms the virtualized Windows PC into a rich, media-capable virtual desktop client, delivering high-quality, scalable voice that eliminates the "hairpin" effect. Cisco Unified Personal Communicator or Cisco UC integration for Microsoft Lync runs on the Windows-hosted virtual desktop to provide a rich collaborative experience.Product Highlights
