There are two types of CUCM audio conferences: Ad Hoc and Meetme. And we are going to see one example configuration of each.
The network setting for our sample config includes three phones registered to CUCM:
- CIPC: x1000
- EyeBeam: x1002
- X-Lite: x1003
You find a good amount of theory on audio conference types in CUCM here.
From CIPC, I make a call to EyeBeam then press the Confrn softkey:
I make a second call to X-Lite and press the Confrn softkey:
Now all participants are in an audio conference.
To display the conference participants, press the ConfrList softkey
To remove a participant, highlight it and press the Remove softkey
The conference bridge is released and we have a two-leg simple call:
The second type of CUCM audio conferences we have is MeetMe conferences. We configure a MeetMe pattern on CUCM in this way:
Call Routing -> MeetMe Number/Pattern
CIPC is the first to enter the MeetMe conference; he must press the MeetMe softkey and dial the MeetMe pattern:
On Eyebeam softphone, we dial the MeetMe pattern:
So he joins the MeetMe conference:
Also, X-Lite softphone dials the same pattern to join the conference:
