ICA also has several features that RDP just doesn't support yet. ICA enables application publishing -- where the application is on one server but is available across the cluster -- session shadowing, anonymous users, audio support, and drive, printer and port mapping ICA is also built into Internet Explorer and is available as a free plug-in for Netscape. RDP doesn't permit applications to run in a browser

ICA is a protocol developed by Citrix.
RDP is developed by Microsoft.

Each performs the same virtualization channels to the end user clients.

ICA is a citrix communication protocol used to exchange data in a server
environment. RDP is a windows terminal service protocol. ICA works on even
low bandwidth connection at a minimum of 14.4kbps. ICA is much faster than
RDP. RDP works only with TCP/IP protocol but ICA works with TCP/IP,IPX/
SPX ,Netbeui etc.

RDP: transfer complete frame and bandwidth depends on screen resolution,

ICA: create virtual channels(video,audio,print,keyboard& mouse updates) and transfers only screen updates
and bandwidth will less as keyboard and mouse click will be 10-15% of frame
