Dedicated Hangouts Meet IP Addresses
This feature is basically identified in video conferencing traffic arising from Hangouts Meet.
These IP addresses are “to be used mainly for classic Hangouts and Hangouts Meet in G Suite domains.” This is pointed to allowing corporate admins and IT departments to identify video conferencing traffic originating from Hangouts Meet.
Hangouts Meet IP addresses allow to recognize the G Suite video conference traffic. Use the IPs to:
Open the Meet’s TCP and UDP ports for Meet IP’s
Avoid the tunneling or DPI for Meet IP’s
Reduce the latency by providing the shortest path possible to the internet to Meet traffic
However, Hangouts Meet and classic Hangouts will stop using the old IP address on February 14, 2019. This change might interfere with previous network optimization you might have set up, we recommend adopting these IP addresses as part of your firewall & network configuration.
