Title
(EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR INTEGRATION OF INSTANT MESSAGING AND PSTN BASED TELECONFERENCING
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME D'INTEGRATION DE SERVICES DE MESSAGERIE INSTANTANEE ET DE TELECONFERENCE BASEE SUR LE RESEAU TELEPHONIQUE PUBLIC COMMUTE (PSTN)
Abstract
(EN) A system is provided comprising a plurality of instant messaging client applications (202, 207, 208, 209) communicating via a computer network (206) to send and receive messages in real time integrated with n-way teleconferencing capability via a telephone network (216). The system includes a plurality of instant messaging client applications (202, 207, 208, 209), an instant messaging server (204), and a teleconferencing server (210), all connected via a computer network (206). The teleconferencing server (210) enables n-way telephone connections via the telephone network (216). The n-way telephone connections are provided to telephone apparatus of at least some users of the instant messaging client applications who can visualise the teleconference via a graphical user interface (600) of the instant messaging client application.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système comprenant une pluralité d'applications client de messagerie instantanée (202, 207, 208, 209) communiquant par l'intermédiaire d'un réseau informatique (206) pour envoyer et recevoir des messages en temps réel intégrés avec une possibilité de téléconférence multiple par l'intermédiaire d'un réseau téléphonique (216). Ce système comprend une pluralité d'applications client de messagerie instantanée (202, 207, 208, 209), un serveur de messagerie instantanée (204) et un serveur de téléconférence (210) connectés par l'intermédiaire d'un réseau informatique (206). Le serveur de téléconférence (210) permet d'établir des connexions téléphoniques multiples par l'intermédiaire du réseau téléphonique (216). Ces connexions téléphoniques multiples sont fournies à un appareil téléphonique d'au moins certains utilisateurs des applications client de messagerie instantanée, lesquels peuvent visualiser la téléconférence par l'intermédiaire d'une interface graphique utilisateur (600) de l'application client de messagerie instantanée.
