There are several topics in this draft where multiple mechanisms are described to enable certain features. This document provides specific details on those areas, as well as Live Communications Server-specific implementation details that are relevant to the federated interface.This document provides third parties with all the information required to implement a federated interface with a Live Communications Server 2005 SP1 deployment in order to enable federated presence and IM scenarios.
