Conference bridges allow up to 20 participants to join a call simultaneously allowing you to have meetings with anyone, no matter where they’re located. A conference bridge can be accessed through an auto-attendant option, a direct phone number, a direct transfer, or by dialing an internal extension.
To learn how to access a conference bridge and use in-conference controls, please see Use Conference Bridges.
