This paper specifies a multicast-based solution for the delivery of enterprise IP telephony services: MEVA (Multicast-based Enterprise VoIP service Architecture). The solution implements a distributed and a lightweight location service. MEVA architecture encloses both generic functions to build the location service and associated routing primitives and an open interface to allow plugging a signalling protocol. The purpose of MEVA is to create a flexible IP telephony architecture, which is auto configurable and able to detect failures and to dynamically ensure the service availability during those failures. Reliability and robustness functions are enclosed in the MEVA Framework.
