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 Update.

Next, we'll configure the custom Zoom Application. Select Applications from the left-hand menu and click Create Application.

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 8801, then 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 MicroSlicing and 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.

Click Save and within a few minutes Zoom traffic will be protected with Celona MicroSlicing across your private mobile network.
