12. A method for providing a [0035] “The present invention pertains to a videophone.”
videophone communication
system comprising: [0039] “The present invention pertains to a method for a
Video call.”
12a. connecting a plurality of [0244] “A videophone 15 is available to connect to either a

sufficient bandwidth for and
configured for transmitting both [0264] “For an Ethernet attached videophone 15 the user
video and audio communications connection needs to support 802.1 p. DiffServ and/or

[0276] “An existing 10/100 BaseT Ethernet connection to


the desktop is the only connection necessary for
communication to the LAN, WAN, PC 68 desktop, and
various servers, proxies, and gateways 70. Time critical
RTP streams for audio and video are marked with priority
using 802.1 p. Supplying the mechanism within the
Ethernet domain of the LAN for QoS”

said communication network;
[0112] “The method comprises the Aug. 9, 2007 steps of
calling a phone number for a videophone 15 of the
person.”

[0248] “Preferably, in instances where the originating


videophone 15 of a conference is connected to an Ethernet,
and a terminating videophone 15 of the conference is
connected to an ATM network, as shown in FIG. 15, the
following addressing of the packets that cross the network
between the originating and terminating videophones
occurs. The originating videophone 15 sends a packet onto
the Ethernet to which it is an communication with the

originating videophone's IP address. The packet reaches an
originating gateway 80 which links the Ethernet with the
ATM network. At the originating gateway 80, the IP
address of the originating videophone 15 is saved from the
packet, and the originating gateway 80 adds to the packet
the ATM address of the originating gateway 80 and sends
the packet on to the terminating videophone 15.”

[0252] “As is well known, the gateway has controlling


means and a data processing means for moving a packet on
to its ultimate destination. A network interface 42 and a
main controller 50 of the controlling mechanism of the
gateway, operating with well known techniques in regard
to SIP routing information, stores address information
received from a packet and places its own address
information relative to a network”

information including, without [0252] “The network interface 42 also stores the address

[0252] “A network interface 42 and a main controller 50 of
the controlling mechanism of the gateway, operating with
well known techniques in regard to SIP routing

packet and places its own address information relative to a
network 40 in which it is going to send the packet, with the
packet.”

[0259] “A set of servers, preferably each being SIP servers,


provide call control and feature implementation to the
network 40 appliances. These are software servers running
on standard computing platforms, capable of redundancy.
These servers also run a local copy of the users contact
information database and users preference database.
Applications available on these servers provide access to
corporate or other LDAP accessible directories.”

standard, the terminal devices are Supported by one or
