Abstract

The International Telecommunications Union Standardization Sector (ITU-T) has created the H.350 series of Recommendations that specify directory services architectures in support of multimedia conferencing protocols. The goal of the architecture is to 'directory enable' multimedia conferencing so that these services can leverage existing identity management and enterprise directories. A particular goal is to enable an enterprise or service provider to maintain a canonical source of users and their multimedia conferencing systems, so that multiple call servers from multiple vendors, supporting multiple protocols, can all access the same data store.

Abstract

   The International Telecommunications Union Standardization Sector

   (ITU-T) has created the H.350 series of Recommendations that specify

   directory services architectures in support of multimedia

   conferencing protocols.  The goal of the architecture is to

   'directory enable' multimedia conferencing so that these services can

   leverage existing identity management and enterprise directories.  A

   particular goal is to enable an enterprise or service provider to

   maintain a canonical source of users and their multimedia

   conferencing systems, so that multiple call servers from multiple

   vendors, supporting multiple protocols, can all access the same data

   store.

   Because SIP is an IETF standard, the contents of H.350 and H.350.4

   are made available via this document to the IETF community.  This

   document contains the entire normative text of ITU-T Recommendations

   H.350 and H.350.4 in sections 4 and 5, respectively.  The remaining

   sections are included only in this document, not in the ITU-T

   version.
