Create a conference bridge

Conference calls are telephone calls on which more than two parties can listen and participate. These calls are made possible by conference bridge technology.

Communication plan forms support both xMatters-hosted and externally-hosted conference bridges.

  • xMatters-hosted conference bridges are created and managed by xMatters
  • Externally-hosted conference bridges are hosted by a third-party conference provider (for example, WebEx, Intercall, and GoToMeeting).


  • Billing charges may apply to the use of a conference bridge hosted by xMatters. Refer to your license agreement or contact xMatters for details.
  • By default, xMatters conference bridges last a duration of four hours and can be extended for additional four hour periods. For more information about refreshing a conference bridge, see Conference bridge duration.
