We have been adding conference calling capabilities to some conference rooms around campus, and have put together a table to help you determine which room and what type of conference phone will meet your needs. Read on.
There are two types of conference phones, “analog”–a traditional phone line–and “Voice over IP” (or “VoIP”). We have been adding VoIP ports to various conference rooms when we are able (there are sometimes technical limitations that don’t allow us to add a VoIP port), and surveying the availability of analog ports as well.
Media services loans both analog and VoIP conference phones, but the first step is to figure out which type you will need. We have put together a list of all of the conference rooms with conference call capabilities and the type of phone that you need for each. Some conference rooms have multiple ports, so there may be a choice of phone types. Check out the list before you make your next conference call.
We may be adding more VoIP ports in the future and will update the list as that happens.
