  9. 9. H.323 Standard for interoperability in audio, video and data transmissions as well as Internet phone and voice-over-IP (VoIP) Originally defined for multimedia communications and perfectly fits the videoconferencing application It has mechanisms for audio and video call setup as well as capability exchange setup 9
  10. 10. SIP Similar in many ways to H.323. It can be used to setup audio and video calls. A generic protocol that can setup any kind of session, not just audio and video, for example, SIP can be used for instant messaging, data transfer and so on. 10
