Flexible usage options

Although peer‑to‑peer works on a direct connection between end users, a TURN server is sometimes required to initiate connections in cases when security settings hinder them. Our Multi‑Tenant Cloud customers can access the QuickBlox shared TURN server at no additional cost. For enhanced quality and lower latency, our enterprise customers enjoy their own TURN server, set up in their preferred location.
