Using our Celona MicroSlicing superpowers, configuring your Celona platform to prioritize voice and video calls for Zoom users takes 2 minutes.
Log in to Celona Orchestrator and select
Device Groups from the left-hand menu. Click
Create Device Group and give it a logical name.
Select the devices that will be part of your
Zoom Users device group and click
Next, we'll configure the custom Zoom Application. Select
Applications from the left-hand menu and click
Once you have given your application a logical name we can specify the parameters by which the platform will identify Zoom application traffic. Zoom's documentation on ports and protocols used is available here.
After testing both iOS and Android mobile devices we can confirm that the voice and video traffic for Zoom calls is sent using the port range
8801-8810. That makes our custom application configuration very simple.
In the field
Remote Start Port enter
8810 in the
Remote End Port and click
Update to save.
Our final step is to configure Celona MicroSlicing which will apply our traffic policy. In the left-hand menu select
Create. Once you have entered a name, select
Non-GBR, then click the dropdown for
Quality of Service Class.
Interactive Multimedia is the recommended QoS Class for Zoom.
If there are mission-critical use cases, such as public safety or healthcare, you can choose
Highest Priority Signaling.
Now select the
Device Group and custom
Application you created previously from the drop-down menus.
Save and within a few minutes Zoom traffic will be protected with Celona MicroSlicing across your private mobile network.
