What is teleconferencing?
A teleconference is a virtual meeting held over a land landline or mobile phone between a host and any number of participants in various locations.
It involves connecting multiple telephone lines into one call through a conference bridge so more than two people can speak to each other at the same time.
Eureka's teleconferencing service can accommodate over 1000 meeting
participants at any one time because we own agile conferencing bridge technology. This means your digital line quality is never compromised and your meetings can run seamlessly every time.
How do you host a teleconference?
Hosting a teleconference easy. All you need is a set of conferencing codes, a telephone and meeting participants.
When you set up a Eureka conferencing account, you will receive your own set of conferencing codes which will include:
- a host code
- a guest code
- a list of local and international toll free and local captial dial-in numbers that you and your guests can use to dial in to conference from anywhere in the world.
To host a teleconference, just use the dial-in number relevant to your location, enter the host code and you are away! Your guests will then follow the same process by joining the conference using the guest code you provide.
Once everyone is connected, you can conduct your meeting as you normally would if you and your participants were physically in the same room.
Can you still conference when out of the office?
Yes. You are not restricted to using a desk phone with our conference call service. Eureka's mobile app - eurekaLINK supports those who need to meet and connect while they are on the move.
What are the benefits of teleconferencing?
- Host meetings to accommodate participants in multiple countries (just make sure you check your time zones first).
- Arrange a teleconference on much shorter notice than a face-to-face meeting.
- Connect people in multiple locations.
- Reduce your business travel expenses.
- Save your business time and money.
What's more, you can also record your teleconference and download the audio file from our website to review at a later date or share with people who were unable to attend the conference.
Why choose Eureka?
- 24/7 customer support

In addition to this, you do not have to book a time to host a teleconference. As long as your participants know when they need to be on the line, you can dial in at any time.
We also offer a dial-out service, which enables the host to dial participants in. This can be a good option if you want to make certain everyone who needs to be on the teleconference is actually present (special conditions apply to this service – call us to find out how it works).
