Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR INITIATING A CONFERENCE CALL
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE LANCEMENT D'UNE TELECONFERENCE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention is a system and method for initiating conference calls via an instant messaging system to reduce the effort required to initiate and manage the call. The system uses an IM connection between a requesting party and a conference call server to inform the conference call server of the desire to initiate the conference call. The conference call server may initiate the conference call by having involved parties called by a conference bridge, thus reducing the effort required by the parties to join the call.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système et un procédé de lancement de téléconférences, via un système de messagerie instantanée, en vue de réduire l'effort requis pour lancer et gérer la communication. Le système utilise une connexion IM entre une partie requérante et un serveur de téléconférence, en vue d'informer ledit serveur de l'intention de lancer la conférence. Le serveur de téléconférence peut lancer la téléconférence de façon que les parties concernées soient appelées par un pont de conférence, réduisant ainsi l'effort requis par les parties pour se joindre à la communication.
