  • No Edge server is required if they are simply dialing from external lines.

  • Basically if you only plan to support dial-in conferencing from PSTN endpoints (e.g. mobile phones) then these calls don't require an Edge server at all.  The call flow would be PSTN > PBX > Media Gateway > Mediation Server > Front-End Server.  The calls enter your environment via voice to the PBX TI, not as network traffic so no need for Edge services.
