ITPComm 2007 conference

The CONFIANCE/DCON team at the end of IPTComm 2007 conference

A paper on CONFIANCE and DCON has been recently presented at the IPTComm 2007 conference (Principles, Systems and Applications of IP Telecommunications) in New York. After the discussion of the paper, which described the scalability enhancements DCON can offer, a demo of the described work has been successfully arranged for all the interested attendees.

Performance analysis

DCON scalability

The numerous performance tests we conducted have demonstrated how the DCON architecture improves the scalability of the centralized XCON framework it is based upon. Specifically, we found a linear increase in the number of users the conferencing system is able to manage and a huge improvement in terms of resource consumption, too.

Please visit the Performances Evaluation section for more information.

Internet Drafts

Three Internet-Drafts recently  submitted to IETF XCON WG are available in the Drafts section. The draft named "Requirements for Distributed Conferencing" examines the requirements for an architecture capable to provide a distributed conferencing service. It draws inspiration from a number of existing research efforts inside the IETF, mainly in the context of both the SIPPING and the XCON WGs.

DCON starting point

As a starting point, the stable version of our platform is available in the project download page: please note, however, that, even if stable, this version is OUTDATED (check out the install.txt for the right version of the software to use), since we're putting great efforts in the next version of our platform: check the W.I.P. on the project page as soon as it will be made available.
