Abstract

An efficient conference service facilitates the implementation and the run-time control of conference applications. Key features of a conference service are conference management, multicast communication support, application state synchronization, and user data marshalling. The paper compares the features offered by the T.120 standards and the CORBA distribution platform. Since they complement each other, it is discussed how a conference service based on a combination of T. 120 standards and CORBA can be realized.
