Phone Systems PBX
A phone systems PBX is essentially a telephone exchange within a business that is specifically designed to deal with a number of separate lines and separate incoming and outgoing calls. The acronym PBX stands for private branch exchange and it is in fact quite similar to a public branch exchange in the way that it operates; the main difference is that it is in fact privately owned by the company that is using it. A private branch exchange eliminates the need to install individual lines for each extension or each person needing a telephone within your business operation. Visit Phone Systems PBX to get set up.
The phone systems PBX acts like a network for your business or office, creating and handling multiple lines all at the same time and all running through the same exchange which is the heart of the private branch exchange. Traditionally private branch exchange systems were far too expensive and complex for anything other than larger business or corporate applications. Smaller businesses would have to make do with single lines connected to a public switching network in order to make or receive calls. This was in line with other private telephone connections and was not the most efficient system available but did fit in with smaller operating budgets.
With the dawning of the internet age these restrictions, along with many other restrictions fell by the wayside. Today the modern and most up to date version of the traditional private branch exchange or PBX is the internet protocol private branch exchange which is similarly abbreviated to just IP PBX. The beauty of the internet protocol private branch exchange is that it does away with the traditional need to have fixed analogue connections that connect the private branch exchange to a public switching network. The internet protocol private branch exchange uses digital or internet protocols to make connections, thus, the private branch exchange now uses digital connections instead of public switching networks to send and receive calls on multiple lines. The newer digital PBX systems are far more efficient and cost effective than the previous generation of analogue based private branch exchanges were. Call Phone Systems PBX today for a FREE quote
