According to Avaya (& partners):

"Avaya IP Office 64 party conference bridge

The Avaya IP Office offers the 64 party conference bridge capability out of the box, all that is required is voicemail Pro and the apropriate number of incomming voice channels. Completely eliminate the need for expensive, hosted conferencing by combining Avaya IP Office's 64-party conference bridge with Voicemail Pro's Rendezvous Conferencing features. It is now possible to host your own dial-in conference any time you want for free. Callers can call a dedicated telephone number, enter a PIN and join themselves into your conference call just as they would in an externally hosted conference; the difference...no high hourly price tag." http://www.datacomsolutions.ca/Avaya_IP_Office_conference_bridge.htm


We have IPO 500 + VMPro server. I have looked for a while now, but not been able to find a guide/manual on how to set this feature up.

Any suggestions and/or directions to the right sites/resources would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

how fancy do you want to get on this, you can do it with just a shortcode on the phone system that everybody dials or you can get access over the voicemail Pro system.
In the manager create a shortcode with the feature "conference meet me" to use it in it's most basic form and people dial it from internal and are in the conference.
Try the help file on the manager for conference and get back here to ask for more info if you want more fancy stuff with voicemail.

Well the paragraph you quote is from an marketing add for the IP Office Conferencing Center server software. So go buy it.

You do, in fact, have a 64-port conference bridge with no additional software required.  As was earlier said, you can set up a short code or use VMPro to provide some security.  Keep in mind that you need an outside path for each external conference participant.  And there is a limit to the number of analog trunk participants.

I belive there is an example of using VMPro to setup a conf bridge in the VM Pro example exercise document on the document CD

Thanks for all the inputs. Kholladay, this looks like a good resource site. IPGuru, I'll be sure to look that up.

kholloday, the downloand link for "Create a conference menu with TUI modifiable passwords" doesn't work. Is there any other place to get this from?

Thanks.

May have been rebooting that virtual machine when you gave it a try.  Darn Windows Updates.

Thank K

I got it. This is actually what I was getting in my address bar: "http://www.ipofficeassistance.com/%5C%5Cwww.ipofficehelp.com%5Cfreefiles%5CmenuConference.zip"

Don't know why, but deleting the first part of the address fixes it.

Thanks again.

This is a very useful link thanks,I was wondering does anyone know what the text to speech engine that was used or the voice that was used for the WAV files please. I had set up something before this but it was just a very simple user dials in and enters conference bridge. VM pro stores the entry and sets up conference based on the number entered. Next caller dials in enters same number and end up in the conference.

Thanks,

Marshall

I just put together a few of the standard Intuity .wav files from the ENU directory in the .zip file on the site.  Some of the others are my voice but those are never heard by the caller, they are just used for setting the password for the bridge.
