Presence-Based Multimedia Communications
Time 05/03/05 01:15PM-02:30PM
Instant Messaging and presence is becoming the watchword and underlying communications architecture of today's enterprise network. Whether IM came into the enterprise virally or through a decision by the IT manager, presence-based communications is now an important way people communicate. But, as IM becomes part of a larger communications strategy, how does the IT manager integrate it into a larger desktop multimedia communications architecture of voice, video, and data communications and collaboration?
In this session we will explore the architecture of Instant Messaging and presence and then discuss how it can be used as a tool for initiating ad hoc point-to-point or multipoint conferences. After that we will discuss related IT and network issues such as supporting other protocols, inviting in other non-IM video/voice end points, scheduling, scalability, deployment, and integration into third party directory services such as Microsoft Active Directory.
