Abstract

   Media Server Control Markup Language (MSCML) is a markup language
   used in conjunction with SIP to provide advanced conferencing and
   interactive voice response (IVR) functions.  MSCML presents an
   application-level control model, as opposed to device-level control
   models.  One use of this protocol is for communications between a
   conference focus and mixer in the IETF SIP Conferencing Framework.
