Recently some of the work we have been doing has involved the testing of IP PBX systems for a few clients.
Essentially this technology is a system allowing telephone calls over the IP data networks. The back end accommodates any current external communication infrastructure. This means that the same phone numbers can be maintained making this a true upgrade for day-to-day business communications.
At its core an IP PBX system is an IP PBX server and possibly a VoIP Gateway for existing PSTN lines that connects one or more SIP phones. SIP phones are designed to be installed directly onto the PC, which removes the need of wiring. This also makes the addition of new phones into the system even easier too.
The scalability afforded by IP phones is not restricted to expensive hardware modules. A standard computer has the capability to handle large numbers of extensions and phone lines making the addition of more lines as easy as installing more phones onto your PBX network.
The sheer flexibility, scalability, and true ease of use of PBX systems makes it a really attractive communication solution for companies of all sizes and scope. If you are interested in continued maintenance or installation of an IP PBX system please send us an inquirely email or contact us by phone.
