Teleconferencing information for GPS Alliance staff.

All UMN phones are capable of allowing phone conferences of 3 callers (this includes the originating call). For calls with more attendees, the UMN conference calling service may be used - there are charges for this service/capability.



GPS Alliance Conference Phone
GPS Alliance currently has one conference phone unit that resides in the Dean's Office at the University International Center. It may be checked out by contacting Kaoru Nunn.
The conference phone provides the advantage of better volume and higher quality speakers and mics, plus extended microphones for larger groups present in the room with the conference phone unit.

IMPORTANT: The conference phone DOES NOT function in a digital line. It can only be connected to an analog line, which is indicated by a black, single-line STE-SDB phone ***Please schedule time with GPS Alliance Technology Support to help with setting up the GPS Alliance conference phone.
