Business conference call is a telephonic call involving three or more people from different geographic locations for business discussion. Conference phone system conducts and initiates a call, which enables multiple callers to converse and listen to each other on the same call. In a conference call, the host participant runs the call, while the other participants dial a number to connect to the call through a conference bridge. Manufactures use traditional public switched telephone network (PSTN), IP phones that utilize internet telephony, or voice over internet protocol (VoIP) for connectivity of conference calls. IP telephone system is an advanced technology in conference phone systems; the caller can use VoIP services in IP phones for better voice quality and advanced features of IP telephony. PSTN lines are used for traditional analog phone with limited functionalities. Highly advanced conference phones are available with a touch panel and better sound system, and captures voice in 360 degrees in a conference room. In standard analog phones, background noise, lack of voice clarity, and volume fluctuations usually create disturbances; in order to avoid such issues, enterprises are using dedicated conference phone systems.
