There are 2 different types of conference calls. There is a normal 3 party conference call and there is a conference bridge.
Normal 3 party conference call:
- If you have an active call on the line and you need to bring a third party onto the call, hit the CONFRNC soft key on the phone. This will place your existing call on hold.
- Dial the desired number or internal extension number that you wish to conference, which creates a private call with you and the number dialed.
- To bring the two calls together, just hit the CONFRNC button again, which conferences all 3 parties together.
A conference bridge allows people inside and outside your company to participate in a conference call. Conference bridges can support many more participants than a normal conference call. The number of participants is determined by bandwidth limitations. There are additional fees that apply to a conference bridge, so please contact your sales or account representative for more details.
