The "Conference" module provides an easy to use scheduler for Cisco UCM Meet-Me conferences and protects meetings by PIN or Caller ID.
Meet-Me Conferences Authentication by PIN or Caller ID
The Meet-Me conferencing is one of the useful features of Cisco Unified Communications Manager, but the common issue is that it is not secure enough - anyone who knows the conference number can dial it and join.
With the "Conference" module you can protect Meet-Me conferences with PIN to be entered by anyone who wants to join the meeting. Each PIN is generated randomly and sent to meeting attendees after the conference is scheduled.
In addition, you can create Meet-Me conferences protected by Caller ID. In this case the meeting only accepts incoming calls from the pre-configured list of phone numbers.
One Number for All Conferences
Your employees will need to remember just one phone number for Meet-Me conferences. The system uses the PIN entered to join the attendee to the correct conference room.
Easy Scheduling From Personal Web-Calendar or MS Outlook
The "Conference" module allows employees to schedule PIN-protected meetme conferences using online calendar, or MS Outlook.
Once the meeting is scheduled all participants are notified by email containing the PIN.
Control the Meeting
The module provides the secured web-interface allowing meeting host to see the list of attendees and disconnect any participant.
Start Meet-Me Conference with any Phone
Cisco UCM Meet-Me feature requires Cisco IP phone to initiate the meeting before other attendees (mobile or 3rd party SIP-devices) can join it. With the "Conference" module you'll be able to start the meeting from any phone.
Conference Bridge Resources Reservation
Before scheduling a meeting the module checks the availability of conference bridge resources. If there are enough resources, the system will book them for the meeting, otherwise the meeting won't be created.
