Directory services architecture for H.320
|Publication Date:||1 May 2011|
This Recommendation1 describes a lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP) schema to represent ITU-T H.320 endpoints. It is an auxiliary class related to [ITU-T H.350] and derives much of its functionality from that architecture. Implementers should review [ITU-T H.350] in detail before proceeding with this Recommendation. Its attributes include basic ITU-T H.320 address elements. These addresses can be downloaded to an endpoint for automatic configuration or published to white pages to create user dialling directories.
The scope of this Recommendation does not include normative methods for the use of the LDAP directory itself, or the data it contains. The purpose of the schema is not to represent all possible data elements in the ITU-T H.320 protocol, but rather to represent the minimal set required to accomplish the design goals enumerated in [ITU-T H.350].
Extending the schema
The h320Identity classes may be extended as necessary for specific implementations. See the base [ITU-T H.350] for a discussion on schema extension.
1 This Recommendation includes an electronic attachment containing a text file with a schema configuration for h320Identity.
