Event Operator-assisted conferencing
Event call is a highly reliable, 100% operator assisted, full-service conference call that is reservations based. Event offers the highest level of formality of all audio call types, and provides several additional security options for customers. Participants can access this service by dialing in on either a toll or a toll-free number, or by being dialed out to by an operator. This call is suitable for 3 to several thousand participants. Event Call conferencing solutions enhance the effectiveness of business communications. Complex conferences are managed seamlessly so that presenters can concentrate on the content of their communications, rather than diverting valuable time and expertise managing the technology.
Communications as a Service (CaaS)
Global Crossing Communications as a Service (CaaS) is part of the Global Crossing Cloud Services portfolio. CaaS is a Session Initiated Protocol (SIP) based audio collaboration application offering high-touch features in a cloud-based solution. It creates a platform that combines our IP Virtual Private Network (IPVPN), SIP Trunking, and Ready-Access® hosted audio conferencing services for a superb collaboration experience.
In addition to a higher quality experience enabled by the “on net” nature of the service, another attractive element of CaaS is that Global Crossing offers this service in a shared-seat billing model via a monthly fee. This provides customers more simple and predictable billing versus per-minute pricing. For the monthly shared-seat fee, users receive access to unlimited global audio conferencing minutes. Shared-seat billing also lowers communications costs, increases overall communications efficiency, and reduces the need to travel, resulting in smaller corporate carbon footprints.
Global Crossing Web Meeting
Web Meeting combines ease-of-use and sophisticated marketing tools to increase audience engagement and interaction for improved ROI with meetings that are more productive. Fully integrated with Ready-Access® audio conferencing, it enables you to communicate anytime, with anyone virtually anywhere.

Using Web Meeting, participants can join meetings with ease because there are no complicated downloads or special software requirements. The Flash-based player for participants makes entering a web conference quick and easy. The 2% without access to Flash aren’t left out – an alternative participant application means they can attend your conference, too. Plus, Web Meeting offers industry-best platform support for Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems and superior browser support for Internet Explorer, Safari, and Firefox.
