  • Patent number: 8477797
    Abstract: A control-based method for processing media stream queues includes: a multimedia control entity processes the talk burst request queues corresponding to different media types when the conditions of triggering processing of different talk bursts are satisfied; and the multimedia control entity sends the assigned talk burst to the corresponding multimedia session terminal. The present invention also provides a corresponding apparatus. By processing the media stream queues, the present invention ensures talk bursts of multiple correlated media types to be assigned in a session.
