Conference callling


#1

Hello all,

I would like to setup my asterisk server so that users can call in for conference calls? can this be done? like 10 people call in at once and can conference? Also what is a good VOIP provider that is cheap for incomming callls that this can work with?

BTW I am using Asterisk@home 2.6 Thanks.

can it be done ? yes no problem. read up on MeetMe rooms.

check the wiki for VoIP providers, depending on where you are, you’ll probably need a business package to be able to get 10 incoming callers.

the concept of paying for incoming calls is quite alien to me the UK, so i’ll merely make one other point … make sure you have both processor power/memory available to process conferences, and the bandwidth available to support 10 incoming calls.
