An IP PBX or onsite telephone exchange enables businesses to manage their incoming and outgoing calls by sharing their telephone lines coming into their business between the users, whilst allowing free internal (on-net) calls between users. This enables the business to create efficiencies and deliver savings in a user friendly manner for their team.
Hybrid and IP PBX’s use a converged service, where both voice and data traffic travel along the same connection. This enables the business to utilise both their traditional telephone lines and VoIP services, enabling them to reduce the cost of calls, whilst delivering a range of features, normally reserved for more expensive telephone systems.
