Conference calls are generally initiated by the initial caller and later on add the other participants from his /her end. Now the same process is iterated for other peoples also. They also add other users in the similar way if the necessity arises. The whole process is termed as “Conference Bridge”.

However the number of persons varies according to the different telecom operators. Outsourcing companies widely used this service for their needs. Three way calling is a variant of conference calling. I this mode of operation, the first person call the second person. After the call is successfully initiated, he presses flash button in his handset and dials third party’s number he want to enroll in the conversation.
