What is Audio Conferencing?

By Hal Werner

Audio Conferencing is a telephone meeting conducted between multiple separate callers. The type of telephone used can vary but typically an audio conference includes attendees that use handheld wired telephones (such as those at a person’s business office or home), conference room speakerphones that can be shared by several people, or individual cellular or mobile telephones.

Audio conferencing is sometimes called “teleconferencing” and traditionally means using a telephone instrument to conduct a business meeting.
