Cisco Jabber is now Fully supported on VMware View.

Last Week, Cisco has introduced its new offering in virtual desktop environment adding support to the Cisco Jabber Unified Communication application in the virtualized workspace environment. this will all happen via the cisco virtualization experience media engine VXME, this will start small with thin clients followed by support for other clients starting with Dell wyse and then windows thin client and windows PCs. one of the most interesting clients that i am thinking of today is the Cisco 6215 which is one of the most interesting clients that Cisco Provides today.

as you all know, the 6215 was supported long ago with VMware view in basic VDI Mode. but the voice and video issue was related to the VXME support which has added VMware Now. the support for jabber is starting from View 5.1

More information on this available on VMware website here. also on Cisco please check the press release here and also news from phil here

You can also check the 6215 Data Sheet here

so now, I would say enjoy doing video conferences with Cisco Jabber Solution from within VMware View.



VMware View Client Preview Available in the windows store.

VMware has just released a preview of its windows client and made it available in the windows store for all. this version will run and available in the windows RT and Windows 8. some of the feature of this client includes.

 

  • Touch Pointer Turn on the Touch Pointer for more control of your VM from a tablet. When it is on, you can create a right-click, by touching and holding with one finger, and tapping with another finger to the right of the first finger.
  • Zoom You can zoom the view of your VM to see more detail.
  • Snap You can snap the View Client so that it takes up part of the screen alongside another app. The minimum screen resolution required for the snap feature is 1366X768.

 

 

although as of now it only provides RDP and not native PCoIP which i am sure is coming soon in the future

 

here is the user interface after the user logins to his desktop

 

 

Enjoy.
