  • Patent number: 9077852
    Abstract: A method includes receiving a control message that identifies a first video conference terminal as an active talker. The method includes sending, in response to the control message, outgoing video conference data from the first video conference terminal via a first multicast group to two or more video conference terminals joined to the first multicast group. The method also includes sending a command to join a second multicast group in response to the control message.

  • Publication number: 20150156079
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus to dynamically provide network policies are disclosed. An example method includes determining a context associated with an attempt to access, by a user via a computing device, a network; selecting a network policy based on the determined context; and programming, in response to the attempt to access the network, a dynamically programmable network element to enforce the network policy.

  • Patent number: 8582474
    Abstract: A method includes receiving a registration message at a video control point (VCP) device, the registration message requesting set up of a video conference between endpoint devices. The video conference is set up to enable a first endpoint device to send media to a second endpoint device without the media passing through the VCP device en route. A communication profile associated with each endpoint device is determined. Configuration settings associated with at least one endpoint device is determined based on the communication profiles. The configuration settings are sent to at least one computing device that is adapted to modify the media based on the configuration settings to generate modified media.

  • Patent number: 8532124
    Abstract: Certain exemplary embodiments comprise a method that can comprise, via an Ethernet Channel Service Unit (ECSU), providing a packet conversion between a Serial Wide Area Network (WAN) protocol and an Ethernet network protocol. The ECSU can be adapted to provide access to a network service between a first device adapted to communicate using an Ethernet protocol via the Ethernet network and a second device adapted to communicate using a serial protocol via the Serial WAN.

  • Patent number: 8411129
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes receiving registration messages at a call control agent device via first unicast transmissions from at least three video conference terminals. The registration messages request set up of a video conference between the at least three video conference terminals. The computer-implemented method includes sending a set up message from the call control agent device to each of the at least three conference terminals via second unicast transmissions. The set up message includes at least an identification of a multicast control group, a send multicast group of each of the at least three conference terminals, and a default receive multicast group. In response to the set up message, one or more of the at least three video conference terminals join the default receive multicast group.
