In a large space with many attendees where a typical speaker phone will not be adequate, a PolyCom may be requested to enhance the audio capabilities over the speaker set. Up to 4 additional mics may be placed around the room when using a polycom. To request the delivery of a polycom phone please visit the RFS page.
Features and instructions on how to use the Polycom phone are available here.
Some conferences require only that all parties be at a telephone. In these cases, you only need to request the Meet-Me-Bridge for the conference as no additional equipment is necessary.
If you have a need to conference more than three separate phone numbers at one time, a “Meet-Me Bridge” is required. A Meet-Me bridge is capable of hosting up to 12 including the originator. Callers also have the ability to phone into the university using a local number or a toll free number. The Meet-Me bridge has to be requested and calls arranged at a predetermined time to a single UST number.
Please visit the RFS page to specify a request for a bridge line in the work description box.
Additionally, bridge lines that require more than 12 lines may be obtained through a voice services vendor. Please contact the Get Help for more information if you would like to contract a vendor for your voice conference.
