How Does Audio Conferencing Work? 

Audio conferencing, also known as call conferencing, is the process of multiple callers participating in the same call. All participants can hear the other callers and speak to the other callers involved. 

The technology behind most audio conferencing systems is simple: callers call in and are connected to a server called a conference bridge. The bridge routes all callers to a specific spot where they can communicate with each other, no matter how many devices they may be calling from. 

Why Do Businesses Use Audio Conferencing? 

This form of conferencing provides a meeting place for multiple parties for the purposes of strategic planning, brainstorming, training, and even conducting business presentations. 

Some businesses will also use audio conferencing with webinars or shared software to increase productivity. Others use it while pod casting to let the audience listen in while multiple parties are participating in a group discussion. 

What Are Audio Conferencing Providers?

Businesses can choose to control their conferencing in-house with phones and other equipment or they can hire specific companies to handle their conference calls for them. These companies maintain their own conference bridges and grant access through PIN numbers or dedicated phone numbers.

What are the Advantages of Audio Conferencing? 

There are multiple advantages for businesses that utilize audio conferencing. Due to the easy accessibility of telephones, almost anyone, anywhere in the world, can participate. Conference calls allow small or large groups of people to communicate, and it allows them to attend meetings when they can’t physically make it to a specific location. Conference calls are also less expensive than travel expenses.

Free Conference Calling Vs. Paid Conference Calling

Free conference calling can leave something lacking with low quality calls, dropped connections, limited networking capabilities, and limited tech support. Many businesses opt for paid conferencing services that provide customized solutions that can accommodate over 100 callers simultaneously. These providers offer global networking, 24/7 tech support, and reliable calls, high quality calls.
