Abstract

   The International Telecommunications Union Standardization Sector
   (ITU-T) has created the H.350 series of Recommendations that specify
   directory services architectures in support of multimedia
   conferencing protocols.  The goal of the architecture is to
   'directory enable' multimedia conferencing so that these services can
   leverage existing identity management and enterprise directories.  A
   particular goal is to enable an enterprise or service provider to
   maintain a canonical source of users and their multimedia
   conferencing systems, so that multiple call servers from multiple
   vendors, supporting multiple protocols, can all access the same data
   store.

   Because SIP is an IETF standard, the contents of H.350 and H.350.4
   are made available via this document to the IETF community.  This
   document contains the entire normative text of ITU-T Recommendations
   H.350 and H.350.4 in sections 4 and 5, respectively.  The remaining
   sections are included only in this document, not in the ITU-T
   version.
