or other IP phone services.
connection option can be used
As an example, one of your participants
can join your call from Australia using the Australia Toll Free number.
On the same conference call, the chairperson could
dial-out to participants in China or Ireland -or any country using the optional dial-out feature.
Another guest can dial-in using their own VoIP connection from any country.
We send you a standard U.S. access number which can be dialed from any country.
Most customers enjoy using the Toll Free access numbers because of the convenience to the international participants.
In fact the majority of international conference calls are normally international 'Toll Free' access conferences.
- If your conference meeting has guests located in a country
on the Toll Free country list,
then you do not need the other access options.
That said, there are situations that require
the use of the 'Dial-Out' feature.
For instance, a participant that may be located in a country that does not have a Toll Free access
number and you may not want that participant to join your call using the supplied U.S. toll number.
The Dial-Out feature enables the chairperson to use our conferencing facility to dial the attendee and place them
into the call.
When the attendee receives a Dial-Out call from the host, it is an 'inbound' call to that participant. No passcodes
are necessary for that dial-out attendee to join. They just answer the phone when it rings to immediately participate.
- Using Skype or other VoIP provider to access your conference
- Another strategy used by some of our customers is to ask
a participant to access our conferencing bridge number directly from their country using Skype or some equivalent
VoIP service that may be available to them.
Your cost would be reduced because the Toll Free rate from their country would no longer be in the equation. It
would be replaced with 2.5¢ cents per minute.
Any of your participants that have
access to an inexpensive calling plan to call the US, can dial-in directly to our U.S. conference bridge as an
alternative to using the supplied Toll Free access number for their country.
Use the 'dial-out' option if an access number is not listed
for the country where your meeting guest is located.
The dial-out rates are typically
lower than Toll Free access rates depending on the country of the attendee.
Simply exchange the per minute rates shown in the example
with the rates corresponding to the countries from where your conferees will dial-in from. Toll Free access numbers.
If the chairperson uses the dial-out feature to connect an attendee to a conference, the dial-out to that participant
is an 'inbound' call to that conferee's phone.
The participant does no dialing and simply picks up the ringing phone to hear and participate.
