Audio Conference Bridge

What is the Audio Conference Bridge?

    The Audio Conference Bridge is a fully integrated, all-digital, audio conference bridge that allows between six (6) to twenty (20) people in different locations to communicate with each other. The unit is housed at our campus telephone switch and is designed to provide access to an in-house conference bridge, eliminating the need to contact conference service bureaus.

How does the Audio Conference Bridge Work?

    To use the Conference Bridge, the participants dial a pre-assigned phone number, enter a password, and are prompted to "speak their name". Your conference bridge will be available at the start time requested so please make sure that all participants do not call in before the start time. An individual may leave a conference in progress at any time.
