V1 VoIP Explains What a PBX Phone System Is

If you’ve just begun researching phone solutions for your business, you may have come across the acronym PBX. Do you not know what that means? Do you know how it might benefit your business? V1 VoIP will give you the 411 on what PBX phone systems are. PBX stands for Private Brand Exchange. PBXs come in a wide variety, although most today are digital and leverage the Internet to send voice and video communications. PBX means a business-grade phone system. These systems offer necessary voice features that companies need to run daily operations including extension dialing, business hour settings to route calls off hours, customer waiting queues, music on hold, and call conferencing.

IP PBX or VoIP PBX
Internet Protocol (IP) PBXs are the most common systems used in business because they are expandable and upgradeable. An IP PBX delivers voice calls through VoIP. Because they leverage the Internet, IP PBXs are capable of high definition audio and many other sophisticated PBX features, such as call queuing, flexible business hour rules, and application integration, interchanging with other unified communications and CRM platforms.

A premise-based IP PBX is a VoIP-based phone system that is housed on site at the office. Instead of physically connecting to the PBX with copper wiring, phones connect to the PBX over an office’s Local Area Network (LAN), often leveraging the same Internet connectivity that your office computers do.

Hosted PBX
A hosted PBX service takes the phone system from your server closet to the cloud because hosted means virtual. Hosted PBX is is maintained by V1 VoIP and allows businesses to connect to it over the public Internet. As the business owner, this eliminates monthly PBX maintenance costs, the hassle of upgrading PBX software, and service downtime, because all these issues are handled by us.

Because of the low upfront capital expenditure hosted PBX is frequently the best fit for small and medium sized businesses. Most hosted PBX providers do not require customers to purchase any equipment beyond IP phones. V1 VoIP offers browser-based administrative portals which offer account owners full control over how the phone service is used in the office. Customers can add phones, extensions, users, and popular applications, such as Music on Hold and ACD queues, easily with a few mouse clicks.

Hosted V1 VoIP Phone Systems: Your PBX in the Cloud

V1 VoIP explains what a hosted VoIP PBX system is why resellers will have customers who thank them for it:

hosted V1 voip phone systems pbx in the cloud

Cloud Hosted PBX
The “Cloud” means that the resources, equipment, and technical expertise required for the technology to run are not kept at your location. Instead, the service is typically delivered to you via the Internet by V1 VoIP. V1 VoIP is responsible for monitoring and maintaining the service, taking on this responsibility so you can focus on running your business. We also usually employs enterprise-grade hardware and software, redundant equipment for fail-overs, and off-site co-location in order to ensure highly-reliable service.

Scalability
Traditional phone systems have fixed provisioning at installation. Hosted phone systems give you room to grow with scalability. With a VoIP hosted Phone system the number of phones in your network isn’t restricted by switching equipment. Adding a new employee is only a matter of plugging the phone into your broadband connection and watching it boot. It connects via the Internet to your PBX in the cloud, and can be fully active with rich dial tone in just minutes.

Flexibility
Flexibility is the real attraction to hosted VoIP. You can also add new phones anywhere and connect seamlessly to the same phone network. Since the service is all managed via the Internet, there’s no limitation on the geographical layout of your V1 VoIP hosted system. You can have your main office in Atlanta, a remote office in Texas, and run your customer support out of San Diego, and all of these locations will operate effectively and efficiently through the same hosted VoIP phone system.

The flexibility of hosted VoIP paves the way for you to develop a strong, reliable telework program. Telecommuters can connect with your office via a VoIP phone at their home and your callers would never know the difference. Beyond simple connectivity, advanced VoIP solutions like V1 VoIP’s also offer a wide array of remote employee management tools, such as visual call reports with performance metrics and the ability to record and review live calls. These tools help you keep telecommuters on task, so you can enjoy the benefits of a telework program without worrying about productivity.

Mobility
With a smart hosted V1 VoIP phone system, calls are not just going to give up and go to voicemail when you don’t answer at your office. Since the call is routing through us to you via the Internet, V1 VoIP’s phone system can automatically check the list of phone numbers you’ve provided online for your extension and keep hunting until the call lands on your cell phone. Or better, when you know you’re going to be out of the office for an extended period, you can easily have calls delivered straight to your cell. That means better connectivity while mobile resulting in fewer missed business opportunities.
