Meetme Conference Call Howto


#1

Does someone have a Howto for Meetme or any other Howto
about Conference Calling ?

voip-info.org/wiki-Asterisk+cmd+MeetMe


#3

The wiki page is more a manual than a howto.

I couldn’t find the bassic issue of a conference call on this page:
“how to invite the 3th person to the call”. How to do this?

They call the conference bridge. Or maybe I am not understanding the question?

This is how I understand meetme as well. It is needed to call a conference room.

Is it possbile to be on a call, put the call on hold, call someone else and put
then all 3 people into a conference?

Is this possible with Asterisk?

Yes, it is, but this is not directly a function of MeetMe itself. As it is possible to call a user and then drop them into a MeetMe app using Asterisk.

So how to do it?


#8

By calling the individual from a device (ie - phone or softphone) and then doing a transfer, after they have picked up, to an extension that is configured to your meetme app, something like:

[code][meeteme_context]

exten => 18,1,Answer
exten => 18,2,Wait(1)
exten => 18,3,Authenticate(5678)
exten => 18,4,MeetMe(18|p)
exten => 18,5,Playback(goodbye)
exten => 18,6,Hangup [/code]

Where you would transfer them to 18.

Not a very easy way to do it, but should work.

Gracias!

You have to remember, extensions on Asterisk are entirely programmable. So, with this flexibility, you due have to do some configuration.

[mycontext]
exten => _XXXXXXXX,1,Dial(IAX2/${EXTEN},90)
