Network Infrastructure

BoostEvents uses simple WebRTC communication for streaming video and audio.

Following here are the requirements to have BoostEvents WebRTC communication working behind a network firewall.

The following requirements must be met:

  • Open TCP port 443
  • Whitelist the following domains:
    • *.boostlingo.com
    • *.boostevents.app  (for legacy purposes)
    • *.voiceboxer.com   (for legacy purposes)
    • d2nikyk9oyytkl.cloudfront.net
    • *.zopim.com
    • *.tokbox.com
    • *.opentok.com

Along with the minimum requirements, opening UDP Port 3478 will give you a better experience. UDP is highly recommended over TCP for better quality audio and video. The protocol favors timeliness over reliability which is consistent with human perceptive preferences; where we can fill in gaps but are sensitive to time-based delays.

This port only accepts inbound traffic after an outbound request is sent. The connection is bidirectional but is always initiated from the corporate network/client so it is not possible for an external entity to send malicious traffic in the opposite direction. For the best possible experience, we recommend opening UDP ports 1025 - 65535.
