    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (756 KB)

    A number of emerging broadband services require the ability to manage multiple parties and/or media. For instance, broadband videoconferencing bridges together more than two parties. A telemedicine service could enable doctors to converse over bidirectional video and audio connections, and share X-rays and patient data over unidirectional data connections. To manage the complexity of multiple part... View full abstract»
