As the outlined in this chapter, the Teradici PCoIP protocol is the technology behind the delivery of the desktop to the end device. Whether that end device is an Apple iPad or IBM laptop, PCoIP uses its intelligence to ensure that the best possible user experience is delivered. Understanding how the Teradici PCoIP protocol works is important in understanding the network requirements of a given VDI solution. In the next chapter, sizing the network will be discussed, which includes the discussion of PCoIP considerations. A working knowledge of the Teradici PCoIP protocol is a requirement for anyone designing a VMware View solution, otherwise, the network could become a limiting factor in an otherwise well-designed solution.
