One of the methods of communication that is now very common and highly available is called teleconferencing. It is one of the most effective and useful ways to communicate with several people about the same thing at the same time. Here are some things you need to know about teleconferencing.
Teleconferencing is basically the live exchange of mass information between people and machines that are remotely connected to each other through some sort of telecommunications system. The most common type of teleconferencing is done through phone lines. The telecommunications system that is used is very important because it a dictates what can be done. Some other forms of telecommunication are telegraph, teletype, radio, and television.

One thing that you are going to notice is that many, if not all, conferencing services are going to be very similar in the basic things that they have to offer. The reason for this is that most of the conferencing services buy their equipment from one of the few manufacturers so because there are only a few manufacturers to choose from this means that there is going to be very few differences in terms of features and connection quality. And because there are very few differences the limits the types of audio teleconferencing that is available.
Currently there are two types of audio teleconferencing available:
Reservationless conferencing - this is actually the most popular type of teleconferencing that is used today. With this type of teleconferencing you can start a conference call immediately; this means any time day or night. This is actually a very simple and affordable method for people or businesses to use. How it works is that when you sign up you will be given a permanent, toll-free dial-in telephone number along with two passcodes. One passcode will be for the teleconferencing host and the other is going to be for the participants. All your participants will need to do is simply dial into be connected to the teleconference and then enter in their passcode.
Here is a reservationless teleconferencing company that you can use to help get you started:

Operator-assisted conferencing - this style of teleconferencing provides the comprehensive support that is needed for important corporate phone calls like investor relations calls or upper level management meetings. This reservation-required service works because an operator is on hand to place calls to all of your participants and they are also there to help you manage your conference call, from the beginning roll call to wrap-up reporting. But this style of teleconferencing has the main drawback of being more expensive than reservationless teleconferencing. But in addition to that another drawback is that you need to make reservations for this service at least one day in advance. But if you do require the advanced features or the operator assistance then these drawbacks are small compared to the numerous benefits you will receive. Here is a company that can help get you started with this style of teleconferencing:

But one thing that you need to be aware of is that when it comes to teleconferencing services there is really no need to pay high prices for the services. And the reason or that is there are plenty of companies out there that offer free conference call services for businesses and individuals. But the deciding factor for what type of service you are going to use will depend on your needs for the service.Continue reading "Free conference call: Extended Entry"
