Check the Internet Connection Reliability
Many companies use Citrix Workspace to give users access to their apps, desktops and data. It’s a great way to increase productivity and offer your employees a streamlined environment that can be easily adjusted, updated and fixed, if needed. It’s great as long as it’s working properly. But, for many remote workers, Citrix Workspace can be unstable by locking up or disconnecting in the middle of tasks.
The reason why Citrix Workspace keeps disconnecting is most likely a poor connection to the Internet of the remote device. So, solving the problem means getting a fast, stable and secure connection. Read below how to get that for you and your team members.
Random Citrix Receiver Disconnects – Why That Happens
The most common cause why Citrix Workspace (formerly Citrix Receiver) keeps disconnecting is actually the Internet connection you’re using. When you have a slow, or unreliable Internet connection, Citrix Workspace isn’t able to work properly. Sometimes, you may not even realize that you have a connection issue until you try and use the service. And it’s most annoying when it happens during tasks running.
Reliable network connectivity is essential when using Citrix Workspace to access virtual apps, virtual desktops, and Unified Communications applications (VoIP). If your Wi-Fi connection has a momentary blip or your cellular connection fluctuates (for remote workers), some of the flow of those packets gets interrupted. It can take a few moments for the data to catch up.
This results in Citrix Workspace disconnecting and looking up. Which means more time spent troubleshooting and a decrease in productivity.
Fix Citrix Workspace Connection Issues Easily: Get Fast, Reliable and Secure Internet
As mentioned above, Citrix Workspace will perform as good as the Internet can perform. At this time, whether you’re using a laptop, a desktop computer or a mobile device, it only uses one connection at a time. Even though you may be connected to both WiFi and cellular data on your smartphone, it’ll use only one of them. So, the solution for fast, reliable and secure Internet is simple: use a secure channel bonding service for you or your organization, Speedify.
The Speedify app works by monitoring the quality of your Internet connections in the background and can bond all available connections simultaneously in a single “pipe”. This improves your bandwidth and connection reliability, so you won’t get any disconnects or crashes due to connection issues from Citrix Workspace.
If you are moving between Wi-Fi networks, or your Wi-Fi or cellular network suddenly go out, you stay connected because Speedify intelligently and automatically reroutes your data until you are connected again to both networks. Best of all, you don’t notice anything because Speedify takes care of it all in the background.
Use all of your connections at the same time
Multiple connections, maximum performance
Speedify can bond any combination of 2 or more Internet connections and will intelligently distribute your online traffic between them for optimal performance.
In the majority of cases, Speedify will automatically detect and start using any Internet connections available to your device - but if you need help we have quick start guides available for most common set ups.
