What is the best Cisco solution for audio only conferences? I need to be able to set up and attend audio conferences from both TDM and Cisco VoIP phones and need about 200 ports.

MeetingPlace looks great but we don't really need the Video and Web conferencing features.

Thanks for any info that you can provide.

Callmanager has a built-in software conference bridge which can be used for ad-hoc and meet-me type conferences. It also supports hardware based conference bridges. Take a look at the following link.

If you need something beyond these capabilities, you might take a look at Cisco Conference Connection.

Thanks. I need to be able to call in and initiate a conference from both an IP phone and a TDM phone as we are just making the switch to VoIP. The Cisco Conference Connection sounds like it has everything we need but I noticed it is EOS/EOL. Since I need approx. 200 ports, it looks like MeetingPlace is the only product that fits the bill.

If you have any other suggestions, I'd love to here them. Otherwise thanks a lot for your help.
