This paper presents a teleconferencing platform that was developed in the course of the European project Beteus. The platform features a highlevel programming interface that reduces the application development effort to a minimum. Platform and applications were deployed over the European ATM pilot network between sites in Sophia-Antipolis, Lausanne, Zürich, Geneva and Berlin. One of the major problems was to make the crossconnect based ATM pilot transparent to the applications. This was achieved with a fully-meshed network of permanent virtual paths interconnecting the ATM LANs of the project partners. Another major problem was the provision of multicast to the applications. With the ATM pilot being a hostile environment for IP multicast, the optimum solution here was found to be sender-based multicast. The paper presents the major features of the application platform and the devel-oped applications. It describes the network configuration and summarizes the experience gained in field trials and major events.
