Global Mesh Network

Global Mesh Network is Daily’s global infrastructure for delivering real-time video and audio at the highest possible quality to anyone, anywhere in the world.

Global Mesh Network is composed of media servers in 10 geographic regions and 30 availability zones. This global coverage translates to a "first hop" network latency of 50ms or less for 5 billion people, and 100ms or less for almost everyone in the world outside China.

Each participant in a Daily call connects to a media server cluster closest to them. Daily optimizes the routing of media across fast internal connections between all of our media server clusters around the world. We use a "mesh network" approach, in which all of our media servers talk to each other and cooperatively manage video and audio sessions.

Daily’s infrastructure scales horizontally and geographically to support up to 100,000 participants in a real-time session.
