Audio Only Conference with Webex


We currently use MPE 2.1 for conferencing and need to upgrade due to EOL. We have two options that are being looked at, 1. MP8.5 with WebEx SAAS, 2. WebEx Meeting Server. One of the questions being asked is, if you run an audio only meeting on CWMS does someone need to log into WebEx to initiate the the conference? I know you can set it up to do dial back but it doesn't say how the meeting must be initiated. I have looked through many documents and found nothing regarding this topic. We have also requested an answer from our Cisco Rep but I thought I might get the answer faster from the people who are actually using this product.

Audio Only Conference with Webex

Hi Ed,

Cisco WebEx Meetings Server offers a new option in 1.5 release called Personal Conferencing which allows you to have an audio only meeting without the need to join the web portion (you can join web portion as well if needed).

Here is the snippet from the release notes:

Personal Conferencing

Release 1.5 introduces the concept of Personal Conferencing, which  lets you quickly start the audio portion of a WebEx meeting at any time.   Meeting hosts and invitees dial a WebEx call-in number and enter the  appropriate codes to start or join the meeting. If necessary, you and  your participants can join the online meeting, which is started along  with the audio portion of the meeting. This feature must be enabled from  the Administration site and meeting hosts must create a Personal  Conference account and PIN.

As CWMS 1.5 was released yesterday, there weren't any documents talking about this prior to that date. Please, take a look at updated CWMS 1.5 documentation for more details.

I hope this will help.

A flavor of this can be found

A flavor of this can be found on MeetingPlace integration with WebEx SaaS as audio is hosted on MeetingPlace side.

As for WebEx SaaS only, I am not aware of all the features, and you might be better off talking to WebEx Support directly or with your Cisco Account Team who can get WebEx Sales Engineers involved who knows WebEx SaaS inside and out.
