You can join a conference bridge from an internal or remote phone.
From an Internal Phone
- Dial the conference bridge extension.
- Enter the conference bridge participant or host pin (if required).

From a Remote Phone
There are three ways for callers to access a conference bridge externally:

- Route the caller to the conference bridge through a dial plan (Auto Attendant node or Conference Room node).
