The easiest and cheapest solution is to use the CUCM integrated conference based solution. This will require you to purchase or add additional PVDM on your voice gateways. You can either do this/branch or use a group of dedicated branch gateways for this.

In addition to Deji's

In addition to Deji's response (+5), you need to provide more details, i.e. do you require scheduling ability, recording, how many participants in each conference and total number of conferencing sessions, this will let us know if you would be OK with CUCM based conferencing or require external bridge such as WebEx.
