Conduct Meetings with VoIP Only
Integrated VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is an
audio feature that sends the audio from your WebEx
meeting over the Internet, instead of through the telephone. If you have speakers or headphones attached
to your computer, a computer microphone, and a
duplex sound card, you can choose to use a VoIP
Only audio conference instead of traditional telephone
based teleconferencing, or WebEx mixed mode audio.
When to Use VoIP
Integrated VoIP can be a convenient and cost-effective
alternative to traditional teleconferencing or WebEx
Audio. You may want to use this option when:
•
There will be a large number of attendees (up to
500 in Meeting Center).
•
Your meeting does not require much attendee participation, for example a presentation rather than a
discussion.
•
You don’t have a toll-free number for attendees to
call or prefer not to incur the cost.
Speaker/Microphone Audio Test
Before participating in an Integrated VoIP conference,
you can use Speaker/Microphone Audio Test to ensure
that your speakers and microphone are functioning
properly and are set to their optimal volume levels:
To test your audio:
1. Start a WebEx meeting.
2. On the menu bar, select Audio > Speaker/Microphone Audio Test. The Speaker/Microphone Audio

Note: There are some limitations with VoIP, such
