SIP(Session Initiation Protocol)-based centralized conference service model has advantage of easiness in conference management and service as compared to other models. However when media server which is one of the components of conference server is included in the conference server, this model shows disadvantage of high server work load with increasing numbers of conferences and participants. In this paper, to improve this problem, we have suggested and implemented a new conference service model in which an UA(User Agent) who first make the conference acts as a media server instead of conventional conference server and, the conference server with conference event package takes only part of management of the conference and its participants. Therefore, many more conferences can be held and managed compared to the conventional centralized conference service model because load of the conference server decreases in our suggested model md, furthermore the participants needs only make SIP call connections to the UA who first make the conference for establishing media session.
