What is a Conference Call?

A conference call is basically a telephone call in which several people can talk to each other at the same time. Also known as teleconference (TC), this call is dedicatedly tailored to allow a called party to either participate in the call or merely listen to it. As the conference call is conducted over phones and not in-person, this makes it a highly preferred option for virtual business meetings. It offers a great way of connecting with your workforce without meeting them face-to-face.

How does a Conference Call work?

As a conference call involves multiple participants in it, the calling party is responsible for adding participants to the call. However, participants can also join the conference call on their own by dialing a number that seamlessly connects them to a conference bridge. The conference bridges are specialized equipment that acts as virtual rooms for connecting several people (through telephone lines) to join meetings. While most conference calls are hosted online nowadays, but in absence of an internet connection landlines can be used.
