About the Streaming Control Protocol Technology

Zangi-in-house-developed Streaming Control Protocol (SCP) was designed to replace Realtime Transportation Protocol (RTP) as a standard for online data transmission. SCP works by reducing the size of the payload format in order to carry up to 25% more data in IP networks on the same bandwidth.

The advantages provided by SCP include low bandwidth usage, smart Internet channel for data transmission, fast and smart recovery for lost packages, Internet Channel Quality-Adaptive system and a fully codec-independent platform.

What’s Network and Services?

You might have seen the sections: Network and Services in your app Settings, and you may have been confused as to why they’re there and if you need to join these Networks and Services or not.

Generally, don’t be concerned by these sections. These are invite-only groups within Zangi, setup by companies and communities who’ve purchased a Business Package from Zangi or by Zangi Partners.


The Network section is a list of Zangi business customers’ services you’re connected to. To be in a network, the Admin sends out invite links to their users/employees/members. By clicking on the invite link, you’ll be connected to the Network, and the new network name will be added in this section. To disconnect from a Network, you can do so from this same section.
