ConferencePlus Inc., a subsidiary of Westell Technologies Inc., has announced the launch of its Managed Audio Bridge Service. This service is an enterprise-wide audio conferencing solution for bridge installations of more than 500 ports that connect to customer’s existing VoIP or TDM networks.
“Large conferencing customers traditionally receive their conferencing services from either a Conference Service Provider (CSP) like ConferencePlus, or through purchasing and managing their own conference bridge,“ said Greg Doerr, COO for ConferencePlus. ”Our Managed Audio Bridge Service provides a ‘best of both worlds’ solution for large enterprises who want their own on-site bridging equipment without the issues of self installation and management.”
All installations are available with the full integration of Microsoft Office Live Meeting, WebEx Meeting Center and IBM LotusLive Meeting. These integrations include provisioning, audio control, roster integration and automatic archive management. Customers also have access to their own fully branded account dashboard Web portal. This dashboard allows end users, executive administrators and site administrators full control over their subscriptions, scheduled conferences, usage summary and archives. Single Sign On (SSO) integration with the customers’ IT infrastructure further simplifies deployment and improves adoption.
ConferencePlus said its Managed Audio Bridge Service can typically be purchased for less than the total cost of ownership of a purchased bridge. ConferencePlus provides all project management and installation services as part of the package with no required up-front installation costs.
