Talk Specific Terminology

  • HPB: High-Performance Back-End, the whole server with all its components
  • SFU: Selective Forwarding Unit, this is one component of the HPB. The SFU collects all the media streams and sends them out to all participants again.
  • Signaling Server: Another component of the HPB which handles the signalling between the server and the participants, e.g. "user X joined a call".

Minimum System Requirements

  • 4 Cores i7/Xeon
  • This setup is estimated to work for at least about 150 concurrent users

  • Supported operating systems:
    • Ubuntu Linux (LTS), 14.04., 16.04. 18.04, 20.04
