The MediaCtrl working group in the IETF has proposed an architecture
for controlling media services.  The Session Initiation Protocol
(SIP) is used as the signaling protocol that provides many inherent
capabilities for message routing.  In addition to such signaling
properties, a need exists for intelligent, application-level media
service selection based on non-static signaling properties.  This is
especially true when considered in conjunction with deployment
architectures that include 1:M and M:N combinations of Application
Servers and Media Servers.  This document introduces a Media Resource
Broker (MRB) entity, which manages the availability of Media Servers
and the media resource demands of Application Servers.  The document
includes potential deployment options for an MRB and appropriate
interfaces to Application Servers and Media Servers.

This document is a product of the Media Server Control Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
