The SIP conferencing framework defines a model for tightly-coupled conferencing signaled via the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), in which a Conference Policy Control Protocol is used to manipulate policies relevant to a specific conference, such as conference membership policy, authorization policy, and media layout. This document describes a logical model, which can apply to any session setup protocol, to describe media processing in a tightly-coupled conference. It also defines specific protocol semantics and a specific syntax to manipulate that model.
