Announcing the OpenTok Connectivity Doctor

ConnectivityDoctor_1024x1024As an OpenTok customer, you know that in order to deliver a great call experience, network connectivity is king. You can spend hours developing your real-time communications app, only to encounter connectivity hurdles like corporate firewalls or blocked IP in a new network environment.

It’s important to know that your application will work where you need it to, whether you’re pitching an investor, selling to a client, or just showing off all your hard work. That’s why we’re excited to launch the first version of the OpenTok Connectivity Doctor.

The OpenTok Connectivity Doctor helps you diagnose problems with your network before or after you connect to an OpenTok session. This tool does not test for errors in your code.

This post highlights one of the many new features of the 2.2.0 SDKs, about which we are feeling particularly excited: the “Video Driver”.
