Is ConferenceXP related to the OMCast goals ?


ConferenceXP employs a peer-to-peer architecture. Because no server is involved, this architecture
makes deployment easy, and it prevents network traffic bottlenecks and single points of failure.
This architecture uses multicast to ensure efficiency and scaling for multipoint video conferencing
over a broadband network, as well as for sharing documents and ink over a 802.11b wireless network.
It also supports point-to-point unicast for environments where multicast is unavailable.
