Title
(EN) CENTRALIZED MANAGEMENT AND ALLOCATION OF BRIDGES IN A TELECOMMUNICATIONS NETWORK FOR A MEET-ME CONFERENCING SERVICE
(FR) GESTION CENTRALISEE ET ATTRIBUTION DE PASSERELLES DANS UN RESEAU DE TELECOMMUNICATIONS POUR UN SERVICE DE CONFERENCE RENDEZ-VOUS
Abstract
(EN)
The invention manifests a secure, on-demand meet-me conferencing service embodied within a telephone network having an advanced intelligent network (AIN) infrastructure. Centralized control from a service control point of provisioned conferencing bridges located in network switches is effected in the AIN telephone network, thereby overcoming the resource efficiency limitations and corresponding costs of the prior art systems. In addition, it enables the local exchange carrier (LEC) to offer a new type of conferencing service at a lower cost where prior reservation of conferencing facilites is no longer necessary and which possesses other advantages with respect to ease of use, ease of administration, availability and security.
(FR)
Cette invention concerne un service de conférence rendez-vous à la demande et sûr, lequel est mis en oeuvre dans un réseau téléphonique possédant une infrastructure de type réseau intelligent de pointe (AIN). La gestion centralisée, depuis un point de commande de services, de passerelles de conférences déterminées situées dans les commutateurs du réseau, s'effectue dans le réseau téléphonique AIN, ce qui permet de dépasser les limites d'efficacité en matière de ressources et de réduire les coûts par rapport aux systèmes connus. Ce système permet en outre à un exploitant de centraux urbains d'offrir un nouveau type de service de conférence à moindre coût, sans qu'il soit désormais nécessaire de réserver au préalable des installations et des services de conférence. Ce système présente également d'autres avantages quant à la facilité d'utilisation, la facilité de gestion, ainsi que la disponibilité et la sécurité.
