im defintely no expert here but for more than two parties you must have an MCU.

Thanks for the information. If MCU must be used, where will it be install? On the Callmanager or the IP Phone (CP-7985) itself. Can this be done with a callmanager express? If so, where will the MCU be run on the Express?

the MCU would be another server that connects to the call will have its own software etc and just does an integration to the CCM. have not done any research on call manager express however it should be the same logical integration so it shouoldnt matter. have a look at this

there are also software MCUs
