The MBL IT Department offers two options for MBL Staff or Researchers that wish to host a Teleconference.
Personal reservation less teleconference lines can be set up free of charge for MBL community members with a valid Cost Center through the MBL IT Department. These lines will only accrue charges as they are used. The per minute rate for a teleconference call is $.10 per minute per caller. Each teleconference line is connected to an MBL Cost Center at the time of the initial setup. Billing will be calculated at the end of every month and each months charges will appear on the approved cost center’s monthly financial statement. Teleconference participants calling from outside the United States and Canada will be subject to the international long distance fees specific to the country they are calling from. International calling cards numbers may be obtained from the MBL IT Department and associated to a specific cost center for this purpose. There is a limit of 6 participants, including the host, which may participate in a conference call.
- Teleconference participants calling from outside the MBL, but within the US or Canada, dial 1-800-761-3813 toll free. When dialing from any other country you must dial 011-800-761-3813, and will be subject to international calling rates.
- Once connected participants will be prompted to enter the assigned four digit teleconference number and passcode.
- Each participant will then be routed to the teleconference and notified if they are the first party to join the teleconference, or if the teleconference is already in progress and will be introduced into the conference by a chime.
If there will be more than 6 participants on the call the MBL IT Dept can assist with setting up a conference line with AT&T.
