For everyone who wants simple answers to hard questions on technology!
Audio teleconferencing is voice-only communication. It links people in
remote locations via ordinary phone lines. Audio systems include telephone
conference calls as well as more sophisticated systems that connect multiple
locations - from just a few to many hundreds - via a central bridge that
ties all the lines together.
is of primary importance to user satisfaction with teleconferencing whether
it is audio only, audio graphic or video. Uneven or weak voice levels,
noise, acoustic feedback, voice clipping, and other impairments can act
as barriers to system acceptance. Audio technology, therefore, plays an
important role in influencing user attitudes with any form of teleconferencing.
Commercial bridging services have grown out of the audio bridging marketplace.
There are approximately 30 vendors of bridging services today. These services
developed as more organizations wanted high-quality bridging to hold audio
teleconferences without the overhead of having an in-house bridge.
bridging provides a wide array of services to users including call initiation
options (meet-me, fully automated, operator dialed, customer dialed, dial-in
WATS and so forth), operator monitoring, operator recall, tape recording
or on-line playback of recorded messages/information, polling capabilities,
subconferencing, and customized answering.
bridging services do not typically use secured bridges but rather secure
conferences by using private passcodes or numbers that only conference
participants are given. These passcodes or numbers are then cleared with
an operator before a caller is admitted to the audio teleconference.
