The following phone conferencing options are available to faculty and staff users.
1. Meet-Me Conference: Meet-Me Conference allows up to 12 people (on or off campus) to dial into one telephone number with no need to use a conference button. All parties simply dial into one pre-assigned number and they are all joined in conference. This service can be used at night and on weekends as well. There is no cost for using this service. To schedule a conference bridge, please contact the campus operator by dialing 0 or 610-758-3000.
2. External/Large Group Teleconferencing: our carrier Windstream offers their Ready Bridge Audio Conferencing at a low rate of 6 cents per minute per caller. There are no setup fees, however, surcharges and monthly recurring fees do apply. To arrange for a Ready Bridge conference for your department please dial extension 86399 to speak with a member of our Telecommunications staff. We will need an account number so that the conference bridge charges can be billed back to your department. We contact Windstream and setup the number for you. Please be aware that set up time for the Ready Bridge conference is about 5-7 business days after we contact Windstream. We then provide you with an e-mail from Windstream containing the Access Phone number as well as details on how to use the service. Once the number is setup it is yours to keep.
