How Does Hosted PBX VOIP work?
A PBX (Private Branch Exchange) works as a switch. It makes the connection between two or more calling parties through thick copper wires, over the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network). The traditional PBX systems involved hefty expenses due to buying and installing massive PBX equipments. Besides involving huge ownership costs, the earlier premise based PBX systems needed expert IT professionals to monitor and upgrade the telephony system. Thus, the earlier PBX systems remained a distant dream for many small businesses, who had limited IT budgets.
How Hosted PBX came into being:
With the innovations and massive developments in the field of data networks and internet telephony the Hosted PBX Systems came into being. The integration of voice telephony with digital data gave birth to the PBX VOIP. These IP based hosted PBX systems came as the answer to the prayers of SMBs as a low cost alternative to the earlier PBX systems.
