Abstract

Herein, we introduce Meetecho, an architecture capable to provide multimedia conferencing functionality in a standard way. This architecture is an actual implementation of both the framework and the protocols defined within the IETF by the XCON Working Group, and already revealed itself as a useful testbed supporting the ongoing standardization activities.
