Ad Hoc Conferencing Overview
Ad Hoc conferences allow the conference controller (or in some cases, another participant) to add participants to the conference.
Ad Hoc conferences comprise two types: basic and advanced. In basic ad hoc conferencing, the originator of the conference acts as the controller of the conference and is the only participant who can add or remove other participants. In advanced Ad Hoc conferencing, any participant can add or remove other participants. Advanced Ad Hoc conferencing also allows you to link multiple ad hoc conferences together.
Advanced Ad Hoc conferencing allows you to link multiple Ad Hoc conferences together by adding an Ad Hoc conference to another Ad Hoc conference as if it were an individual participant. If you attempt to link multiple conferences together when the Advanced Ad Hoc Conference Enabled service parameter is set to False, the IP phone displays a message. You can also use the methods that are available for adding individual participants to an Ad Hoc conference to add another conference to an Ad Hoc conference.
