8x8, Inc. (NASDAQ:EGHT), a leading provider of cloud-based unified communications and contact center solutions, today announced that it has been awarded a new patent related to its conferencing technologies.

The new patent relates to, among other things, a method for operating an audio conference system that includes at least one logic circuit and a caller interface that involves receiving incoming telephony calls at the caller interface.
