Re: Conference Call

MeetingPlace is the product designed for this. You can achieve an extremely basic version of this using MeetMe conferences by using a translation pattern between a DID and a bridge number; however, an internal user must start the meeting first by going off hook, pressing MeetMe, and dialing the bridge number. Until an internal user does this, external users will get a busy signal.

Also, MeetMe provides no security (pass code) so anyone can join the meeting. There is also no join announcement by default. You can enable a join tone in service parameters but no name introduction.

The lack of security is usually a problem for customers. Some people have developed elaborate Unity or CCX IVR front-ends that impose an artificial password on the caller before transferring to the MeetMe bridge number.

Re: Conference Call

You can only do that with meet-me conference.

You need a product dedicated for it like MP or MPE, CCC is end of sale...

Re: Conference Call

Hi,

What I understand is that meet-me conference is possible by deploying Meeting place or MP express?

Can't we do the same by deploying any Conference module if any on PSTN Gateway router?
