MetaSwitch Unveils SIP Conference Server

MetaSwitch announced a new conferencing component for its UC9000 Unified Communications application suite.

The UC9000 Conference Server combines standards-based SIP conferencing control with a reservation-less "meet-me" conference application and a web-based management interface. It supports conference calls of up to 500 participants. Moderators are able to easily set up conferences via an intuitive web interface, and control participant interaction and call flow via the phone interface or through the web. Other features include:

  • Lock/roll call/number of participant controls

  • Dynamically updated participant list in real time

  • Visible indication of current speaker and audio levels

  • Ability to mute, gain control and disconnect any participant

  • Call recording

As part of the UC9000 Unified Communications application suite, the new conferencing capability integrates seamlessly both with MetaSwitch's softswitch platform and other UC9000 enhanced services including unified messaging, auto attendant, music on hold, and privacy defender.
