Prepare your network

Audio Over IP for IT Managers

Dante Domain Manager

Make sure the Zoom Rooms are on the same wired network (no wifi) as the dante devices. Consider isolating your AV network with a local network switch and a USB to ethernet converter to allow the Zoom Rooms to be on both local and building networks.  If an isolated AV network is not possible, consider setting up VLANs or Dante Domain Manager as needed to allow or restrict network access to your microphones

The customer is always responsible for the security of the network when using this feature
