The Citrix Branch Repeater accelerates and optimizes TCP/IP traffic – automatically. Its “SmartAcceleration” technology can identify and classify over 500 enterprise applications and service protocols out of the box, and will accelerate any TCP-based application, including notoriously inefficient file transfers.

By caching and optimizing ICA packets, Branch Repeater can allow you to support up to four times as many XenApp or XenDesktop users over a given WAN connection.

The Branch Repeater with Windows Server integrates acceleration and optimization with essential Windows services such as DHCP, DNS, Active Directory, and DFS, and can provide local caching at the branch level for streamed application packages.

The Branch Repeater is also available as a virtual appliance.
