Tele-Communication (Telecom) Terms Glossary and Dictionary
Teleconference refers to holding a conference via a telephone or network connection. The most simple form of teleconferencing is using three-way calling to setup your own teleconference. More advanced PBX equipment can setup conference calls between more than three participants. Computers have given new meaning to the term because they allow groups to do much more than just talk. Once a teleconference is established, the group can share applications and mark up a common whiteboard. There are many teleconferencing applications that work over private networks.
