A client asked me today how to initiate a 4-way conference call (user + 3 outside callers).

I said it couldn't be done without involving another phone within the office, but...I know someone here knows a "trick".

I recall Nortel being somewhat slim on conferencing with 3 party. A local utility customer of mine with a CICS wanted to do this with 5 to 7 parties. I had them add CO 3-way calling on all 5 CO lines. They conference big time now!

Another way is to get one (or more) of the outside parties to conference in the extra person from THEIR line.

Keep in mind, the more on the line, the weaker the quality.

Don't know what type of Nortel it is by your post. If it's a PBX (61C/81C) it is defined according to set type.
Digital sets (2000 series)it is defined when conf. key is added to key in LD 11 as follows:
Key (number) AO6. For analog sets it is defined in LD 10 in CLS as follows:
cls C6A (for 6 party conference allowed).
Don't know if it relates, but thought I'd try and help.

On Norstar systems, conf is ONLY You plus two other people. To get more, use Telco, a private conferencing company, or get the other parties to conf in more.

For companies that do a lot of conferencing, a conference bridge is a no brainer, and a one time investment.

If you decide to purchase a conf bridge be sure you can provide disconnect supervsion or it'll cause headaches in the future. There are 3rd party products designed to do this.

OK...I've got no brain. What is a "conference bridge"?
