To install the LiveSwitch Server, make sure your machine meets the server requirements.
The following diagram shows the LiveSwitch Server components that are necessary for your client app to run.
|Redis||Stores ephemeral data||
|PostgreSQL||Stores configuration data||Version 11 or newer|
|Gateway||Connects the various parts of LiveSwitch||At least one Gateway is required|
|Media Server||Manages SFU and MCU sessions||At least one Media Server is required|
|SIP Connector||Allows LiveSwitch to connect to SIP endpoints||Optional|
LiveSwitch v1.11 and earlier uses Redis to store configuration data. In LiveSwitch v1.12, you have the option to use PostgreSQL. It's highly recommended that you use PostgreSQL because using Redis to store configuration data is deprecated and is going to be removed in a future release.
