SFU stands for Selective Forwarding Unit.
At times, the term is used to describe a type of video routing device, while at other times it will be used to indicate the support of routing technology and not a specific device.
An SFU is capable of receiving multiple media streams and then decide which of these media streams should be sent to which participants.
