    Hosting Call Conferencing in a Nokia mobile device on any platform

    I have an interesting (cum challenging) assignment.

    A client has asked me to Host call conferencing from a mobile phone. He has provided me complete freedom to choose any Mobile Device & any programming platform available on this planet to accomplish his task.

    Basically what he needs is the ability to Host conference call from a mobile device for upto 40 simultaneous participants (I know it sounds insane for a mobile device, but do I have any choice if his requirements clearly spell out this number).

    So, basically the client wants to create a group of upto say 40 participants, and whenever he dials the group, all participants are automatically & simultaneously added to the conference by dialing all their numbers automatically. Also, if his cell receives a call, and he does not pick it up for some reason, the incoming call again should be conferenced to the group.
    All the participant lines should be working, and disconnected automatically when the parent line disconnects.

    Firstly, I am not sure whether any mobile device on this Mortal Earth supports such conferencing this day. Secondly, if anyone does, most probably, I would need to use the native API for developing an application for it in my opinion.

    I am asking this question at all major Hardware/Software manufacturers. Is there any such mobile device available that can handle a simultaneous number of such participants? (Remember, the mobile device would be Hosting the conference, not a participant of it). 5-6 way conferencing can be supported on any Nokia smartphone. I read somewhere BlackBerry can support many, but the exact upper ceiling was not mentioned?

    Related to Nokia, is there a Nokia device that can support this requirement? If yes, does Nokia API provides features to accomplish this task?? Also, what would be the most appropriate Software platform to code such an application in, JME, Native (in C/C++) or anything else??

    There are several conferencing systems available you probably should look into them. As for the Nokia devices you should post this on the product support discussion boards http://www.nokia.com/discussions/ and not here. This board is just for developer discussions and we don't have the knowledge to help you.

    Hi ron, I asked this question as a developer. I should know, if a product supports a feature, to start developing an app for that. The link you pointed to is mostly an end-user discussion board. I could not find a suitable forum on that board to put up this question.

    Hi,

    I am not sure about 40 lines could be connect at a same time I hahve tried with 5-6 at once with my program. I think you could try with any Symbian phone. I think sometime it also depends on the network operator as well.

    Hi kkrish, the client says it has already talked to the Service Provider for that many lines. Regarding your program, I have seen the .NET CE Telephone API, regarding how to do this.

    I have not seen any Nokia Mobile supporting Windows Mobile. Which platform did you use to code your program, (Java ME or native Symbian API)?
