Ad Hoc Conferencing

Conference Cant get Any Easier  ;D

I already explain in earlier blog the other Conference Feature Meet-me and in my Believe Ad-Hoc is the Advanced feature of Conferencing

in Ad-Hoc the Initiator of the Conference which is the Controller would have the  ability to view the List of the Other Parties, to Remove Some of the Parties. Also you can provide this  Feature to the other parties to have same capabilities of the controller

First just like Meet-Me you need to have conference resources available on you router before you can use any conference features i already explain how to configure a Conference Bridge in earlier Blog Media Resource Group

no other configuration needed

so to start conference first i will go to My Cisco 8941 phone and Make call for the First Parties which in my example is extension 7188

After the first parties answer then I Press the Conference Button

its a really great feature and user will not have to go through System Administrator to ask for a Number to call like Meet-me Conference were you need it

to adjust your conference to protect your self from toll fraud you can configure the call to be terminated once the controller drop the call

Go to System – Service Parameter – Select the Server and Choose the service (Cisco CallManager ) then go to Clusterwide Parameters (Feature – Conference)

Drop Ad Hoc Conference : When Conference Controller Leaves

Also if i want to other Parties non-Controller to View List of Conference parties and Remove other Parties i will go to System – Service Parameter – Select the Server and Choose the service (Cisco CallManager ) then go to Clusterwide Parameters (Feature – Conference)

Advanced Ad Hoc Conference Enabled : True

Also you can increase number of Parties to join conference, the default value for this Clusterwide Service Parameter is 4.

Meet-Me Conference

So i got request from one of the Top Manager in Jaguar Land Rover to have a way to make a conference in his phone for Daily basis

will conferencing one of the most important things in any Enterprise this days,  it save traveling and timing and get to the point ASAP.
Cisco made the implementation of conference easier with Meet-Me Conference so let me guide what you will do when a user Ask you to get to a meeting

So lets go to the Configuration part

First requirement is to have conference resources available on you router before you can use any conference features i already explain how to configure a Conference Bridge in earlier Blog Media Resource group

so after that go a head to Call Routing – Meet-Me Number/Pattern – Add New
Choose a unique Number Ex.: 9876 and partition

1
in case you have a custom Softkey template Then Add the Meet-Me Softkey to the Off-Hook state
(another option is to configure the Meet-me as a button)
Go to Device – Device Settings – Softkey Template – Add new
i named it (Meet-Me)
2
Then Go to on the right corner to Configure Softkey Layout
then select the state Off-Hook from drop down
and Move the Meet-me to the Selected Softkeys and Save
3
Now go to the phone were  you need to initiate the Meeting and Assign the New Softkey template to it which we configure
4So to Procedure
go to the Phone to initiate the Meeting
while the phone in  off hook state press softkey meet-me and press the Number which we configure earlier 9876 which is Meet-me Directory number

After that put the Meet Me unique number 9876IMG_6690
and Like that you enter the Conference RoomIMG_6691
now go the other Parties and Let them just call 9876 simply like they dial any directory number

**the meet me can hold as many Parties as your resource can support**
