Detailed Description

An audio conferencing provider is a third-party company that provides organizations with conferencing services. Among other things, audio conferencing providers provide a way for users located off site, and not connected to the corporate network or the Internet, to participate in the audio portion of a conference or meeting. Audio conferencing providers often provide high-end services such as live translation, transcription, and live per-conference operator assistance.

After organizations have contracted with an audio conferencing provider, users can be assigned to the provider by using the Set-CsUserAcp cmdlet. Administrators can retrieve information about the audio conferencing providers available to them by using the Get-CsAudioConferencingProvider cmdlet.


Parameter Required Type Description




Enables you to use wildcard characters when indicating the audio conferencing provider (or providers) to be returned. For example, this syntax returns information about all the audio conferencing providers that have the string value "fabrikam" somewhere in their Identity:

-Filter "*fabrikam*"

Note that you cannot use the Filter parameter and the Identity parameters in the same command.




Unique identifier for the audio conferencing provider to be returned. For example:

-Identity "Fabrikam Telecom"

If neither the Identity parameter nor the Filter parameter are included in a command then the Get-CsAudioConferencingProvider cmdlet returns information for all the available providers.
