SAN JOSE, Calif., January 17, 2013 – As part of Cisco’s ongoing efforts to enable anytime, anywhere collaboration, Cisco today announced new software that extends the Cisco Jabber™ unified communications application to virtualized workspace environments. As part of a long-term software strategy for collaboration-enabling virtual desktops, this software, called the Virtualization Experience Media Engine (VXME), will be available initially on Cisco thin clients, followed by support for third-party devices, starting with Dell Wyse thin clients, and then Windows-based thin clients and Windows PCs.

That’s what Tony Huynh, Sr. Product Manager at VMware says:
VMware is excited to announce that as part of the Avaya R1 Release, Avaya has added support for rich Voice-over-Internet-Protocol (VoIP) using Avaya one-X communicator with VMware View desktops.
To enable enterprise-grade UC with Avaya one-X communicator on VDI desktops, Avaya implemented a new plugin that performs media signaling and media processing – Avaya VDI communicator. Avaya VDI communicator runs on the client endpoint and offloads all the media processing of VoIP packets from the datacenter server to the endpoint. When Avaya VDI communicator is deployed with VMware View, customers get a highly scalable VDI and UC solution, with point-to-point media delivery and quality-of-service (QoS) support for VoIP. Customers also get the added benefit of business continuity with Avaya VDI communicator – if IP connectivity to the datacenter is lost or the datacenter server goes down, a local “Session Down UI” acts as a local softphone and allows calls to be placed and received.
