The campus telephone system for staff and faculty includes a conference calling feature that lets you talk to multiple parties at the same time. With this custom calling feature, business can be conducted with up to eight participants (including yourself) using a single conference call.
Telcom has a contract with the AT&T Conference Bridge Service to provide audio conferencing capabilities to all Michigan Tech staff, faculty, and students. The University's Meet-Me Telephone Conferencing service allows as many as 26 people to connect with each other through a single conference call.
Any Michigan Tech employee can initiate a conference call from their office or departmental phone by using their campus phone conference calling feature or by utilizing Telcom's Meet-Me Telephone Conferencing Service.
However, there may be times when you will want to hold your meeting in a larger room so additional people can participate in the conference call with you. In this case, it would be beneficial to rent a Conference Phone that is specifically designed for that purpose.
