Keynote at China VoIP 2004, May 19, 2004 (Beijing)
This session will introduce the IPCC, the principal worldwide forum for the promotion of multimedia communications over packet networks. Much work has been done, first with MGCP and H.284 with SoftSwitches and H.323, and now with SIP, to enable the deployment of cost-effective packet-based telephony networks. Now that the transport infrastructure has been deployed, the IPCC is working on a number of case studies for enhanced services. This session will introduce the applications and services infrastructure as defined by the IPCC Reference Architecture, and discuss the efforts around enhanced service deployments.
