What is Skype for Business Optimisation?

Skype for Business Optimisation uses Citrix to improve the user experience by routing traffic between end user devices, rather than across networks to and from a data centre or service provider. The High Definition Experience (HDX) Optimisation Pack from Citrix has been developed with Microsoft to create the best possible solution for deploying and using Skype for Business.

Traditional Skype for Business topology would require the same traffic to traverse potentially long distance networks multiples times (hair pinning), impacting on the user experience, including at times making it so degraded an experience that users avoid using it at all.
