IP-PBX systems are the modern telephone systems of our time. Because they are based on the Internet, IP-PBX systems eliminate the archaic problem of telephone wiring, eliminate the hassle for IT administrators and add several new features.
A virtual PBX also allows you to have more phones than physical telephone lines (PTSN) and allows free calls between users. It also offers features such as transfers, voicemail, call recording, interactive voice menus (IVR) and ACD call queues, and more.
What is PBX?
PBX, or Internet Protocol, is a type of professional telephone system that uses VoIP technology to connect telephone calls to the public telephone network. IP PBX systems can be cloud-based or hybrid of a cloud-based telephone system and an on-site PBX system.
IP PBX allows you to switch from one call to another from a VoIP user on local lines while allowing all users to share a series of external telephone lines. The typical PBX can also switch calls between a VoIP user and a traditional telephone user, or between two traditional telephone users, in the same way as a conventional PBX.
Advantages of IP PBX
Easy installation & configuration
The configuration of an PBX system is a unique process with a minimum installation period. And unlike a traditional PBX system, removing and moving a phone is a simple process of moving it and connecting it to the system. Eliminate the need for complex procedures and wiring adjustments that would be necessary in the old proprietary telephone system for such a simple task.
Better Security with IP PBX system
With all your commercial communications on a network and with controlled access to external networks, it is much easier to establish a security wall around this system against hackers and curious ears. In an increasingly competitive environment, network encryption can prevent your competitors from listening to too many important conversations and developing their trade secrets.
Easier to manage because of web/GUI based configuration interface
An IP PBX can be managed through a web-based configuration interface or a graphical interface, allowing you to easily manage and adjust your telephone system. Proprietary telephone systems have difficult-to-use interfaces that are often designed to be used only by telephone technicians.
IP PBX software allows scalability as an integrated feature. You can reduce the use in hosted IP PBX software and pay accordingly. If there is a periodic need for higher loads, it adapts easily. It is easy to add branches and remote extensions and use them safely on desktops or smartphones. The IP PBX is so easy that it even allows the use of analog telephones and faxes.
