Improve efficiency

Reduce operational
costs


Enable design engineers to work from home or
customer locations


Collaborate across oceans on real time data models


Share hardware resources across multiple users
occupying non
-
overlapping time zones


Network savings achieved from reduced bulk
transfers of data


Global CAD access with Citrix XenDesktop


Challenge




Bridge the distance between India and Switzerland


Engineers in India needed to be able to work as if they were
sitting in Switzerland


Infrastructure bottleneck
-

Experienced severe latency &
bandwidth issues



Solution


Deployed Citrix XenDesktop 3D Pro to deliver E•. Series,
Solid Edge, SAP GUI to engineers worldwide



Results & Benefits


Central deployment of CAD workstations to worldwide
distributed locations


Good application performance when accessed through
WAN links


High security for sensitive design data


Flexible use of CAD applications with different devices


“The CAD users in India have confirmed
that they can work productively with the
Citrix technology. Within a relatively short
period we had found a solution that best fit
our needs.”
