Only one mcu is needed (even for multiple conferences, although you may choose 
to have multiple, as decoding/mixing/encoding media streams causes a heavy 
load on the system), which needs a broadband connection to receive _all_ 
streams and send streams to _all_ participants. The participants then use 
GnomeMeeting / Netmeeting / CuSeeMe ... to connect to this server.

There is no such application, but you can tell gnomemeeting from any 
application to call someone.
