The PBX conference object manages conference rooms with announcements and PIN protection.

The conference calls themselves are connected by one or more conference servers (MCU) registered to this object as devices. If more than one conference server is used, the different media types of the calls can be split to the different servers. A innovaphone CONF interface can be registered to this object to provide audio conferences with application sharing.
