ViDeNet Toolset Zone administrators manage their own accounts Tools to create and manage zones Create customized web portal User endpoint account management Users manage their own accounts Request endpoints in any zone Directory access
Directory Services Supports H.323, H.320, H.235, SIP Integrates flexibly with enterprise directories Allows for integrated centralized user management Allows multiple endpoints to be associated with a user Supports Directory of Directories portals Scheduled ratification in May 2003 as ITU-T H.350
ViDe.Net Middleware NSF Funded Project University of Alabama at Birmingham Claremont Graduate University SURFNet University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Deliverables Directory Services model Secure h.323 endpoint Secure SIP endpoint H.350 enabled gatekeeper
Emergency Communications Building on September 11 experiences with Columbia University Documenting GDS voice gateways Enables voice transport over ViDeNet in case local voice services are unavailble Provides an environment in which to explore inter-realm authentication and toll bypass.
QoS Working Group Newly formed working group Exploring issues of packet marking for video and voice over IP Will be fully explored in Munch
