Teleconferencing has traditionally been the domain of Fortune 500 companies for one simple reason – Ma Bell managed it from large call centers dedicated to supporting its large customers. The features offered were minimal – a phone number and PIN and a few basic handset controls. After AT&T’s break-up, the Baby Bells copied these services and invested little in R&D improvements.
