Tata  Teleservices  Limited  (TTSL),  India’s  fastest-growing  pan-India  dual-technology   telecom   service   provider   has   launched   ‘Insta   Conference’   –   a   unique   audio   conferencing    service  using  XOP  Network’s  Universal Service  Node  (USN)  platform.  Insta  Conference  service  allows  a  customer  to  instantly  convene  a  voice  conference  with  a  pre-selected  group  of  individuals at the press of a key. The service is available to all existing as well as potential customers of Tata Walky, Tata Indicom and Tata DOCOMO. The service is unique in its offering; making voice based conference calling an extremely easy process. By dialing a single number, from their registered phone, TTSL subscribers will be able to simultaneously reach a group of pre-defined users. Speaking at the launch, Mr. Sukanto Aich, President Enterprise Business, Tata Teleservices Limited said,  “We  are  delighted  to  introduce  another  revolutionary  value  added  service  for  our  customers  across the Tata World. Our collaboration with XOP Networks has enabled us to offer Insta conferencing service  based  on  XOP’s  Firebar  application.  It  is  aimed  at  large,  small  and  medium  enterprises,  wherever  there  is  a  need  for  instant,  voice-based  group  communication.  The  service  is  hassle-free,  easy to connect anytime, from anywhere, can connect any number of people at one point in time, and above all is cost-effective with no additional rentals.” Mr.  Sudhir  Gupta,  CEO  of  XOP  Networks  said,  “We  are  very  pleased  that  Tata  Teleservices  has  selected  XOP  Networks  platform  to  power  its  Insta  Conference  service.  It  is  a  great  honor  to  be  included in Tata Teleservices Limited’s network and to be able to assist in bringing this unique audio conferencing  service  to  Tata  Teleservices  Limited  customers  across  the  country.”  Insta-conference  significantly reduces the effort required to set up an audio conference call. This Conferencing service is a cost-effective, efficient and convenient. A customer can simply dial in to the  bridge  to  automatically  start  a  conference.  The  application  dials  out  to  one  or  more  numbers  belonging  to  each  individual  and  as  people  pick  up  their  calls;  they  are  automatically  placed  into  an  audio conference. The service also allows them the flexibility to dial in and join/re-join as necessary. The charges for calls using Insta conferencing are based on flat billing and will be independent of the voice  plan  /  add-on  packs,  which  the  customer  has  subscribed.  Charges  will  be  levied  based  on  the  actual number of participants in the conference and the respective duration for which each of them participated.
