4, 8, 16 Only outbound WAN traffic is counted against the licensed bandwidth (Mbps or Gbps purchased). QoS and / or unaccelerated traffic do not count against the licensed bandwidth. Unaccelerated and QoS traffic can, however, impact the total amount of outbound accelerated traffic.

5, 9, 17 Some protocols (for example ICA) can limit the processing capacity of the appliance before the licensed bandwidth is reached.

14 User count is based upon a medium level workload as defined by Login VSI and Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops / Citrix Virtual Apps advanced encryption security. User count is limited by link bandwidth and TCP session counts. No user count is enforced. Published numbers are for guidance purposes only.

15 TCP session count will be reduced by active HDX sessions. No session count is enforced. Published numbers are for guidance purposes.

20 For Citrix SD-WAN appliances, the Networking Cloud Connector is delivered as a separate software appliance.

21 The VPX images are qualified to run on Intel processors only.

22 For best performance, use solid state drives or high IOPs storage devices.
