Client and Network
Client and network
Browsers and mobile devices connect to the MeetingSphere service via standard port TCP 443 (https; TLS 1.3). The voice service uses ports UDP 20,000 - 65,000 falling back to TCP 443 if those ports are blocked.
Users on a slow line, lacking a headset or unable to connect over the Internet for whatever reason dial into the voice conference via the telephone network (PSTN). MeetingSphere offers over 200 'local' (land-line) numbers.
There are no conferencing charges.
