Network Optimization

PCoIP is a real-time protocol with built-in features that optimize, shape and throttle network bandwidth use automatically. However, network administrators can make many adjustment and service quality improvements to optimize a network for use with PCoIP. Settings within the PCoIP Management Console allow you to make broad and incremental adjustments that affect bandwidth, As well external QoS-enabled equipment and software help network administrators to monitor and manage network traffic.

Build to Lossless, or Perceptually Lossless?

The PCoIP protocol is flexible in terms of how it builds client-side screens. Very few applications require full lossless resolution and high refresh rates. For example if your typical user is a knowledge worker who accesses an ERP system, that is not a graphically intensive application. In this case, you can choose to set the system for much less than visually lossless compression. On the other end of the spectrum, a medical imaging application requires demands full lossless compression. Select resolution settings that make sense for the typical use case.

Store Frequently Requested Content on the Client-side

Frequently requested information static content stored on the client side cache

Presented locally from the cache rather than sending it over the wire again.For certain applications this makes sense. For example, if you are running a kiosk in a shopping mall, which shows a looping slide show you can save 30 – 40% on bandwidth by turning on client side caching.
