Do PCoIP zero clients with VMware View support Microsoft Lync?

From Teridici

Do PCoIP zero clients with VMware View support Microsoft Lync? (15134-1526)
Knowledge BaseDeployment / ManagementBy ProductPCoIP Zero Clients
Because of the architecture of zero clients, a different method of configuring Lync is required. The softphone needs to be installed on the host VM rather than the client, and the point-to-point communication needs to occur between the zero clients to avoid routing media traffic through the data center.  Teradici has developed an SDK which enables this. However, Microsoft must implement the SDK in the Lync client to enable the redirection of the point-to-point media communication between client endpoints.
Microsoft is currently tracking customer demand for PCoIP zero client interoperability with Lync, and therefore it is very important that this request be directed to Microsoft.  Please send the following request template below to your Microsoft Lync representative:
We at [company name] request that Microsoft Lync be supported when using PCoIP zero clients which include processors and firmware from Teradici. Teradici offers softphone vendors an API which enables point-to-point communications to and from PCoIP zero clients. Our organization has or will be deploying Microsoft Lync for [number of softphone users] users.  As PCoIP zero clients have no application OS to manage, the Lync 2013 plugin for PCoIP soft or thin clients will not function for us. PCoIP zero clients are widely deployed for VMware View environments.

Please note that Lync Phone Edition hard-phones such as the Polycom CX-600 are supported with Tera2 zero clients. Other Lync Phone Edition models are listed here:

Along with the changes to the 3D support there are important storage and memory footprint overheads to be observed. I am writing another article to explain what is changing with vSphere 5.1 and Horizon View 5.2 when 3D support is enabled for a virtual desktop.
