PBX Phone System vs Hosted Phone System

PBX Phone Systems

PBX, or private branch exchange, refers to telephone networks used within companies. Internal phone lines are connected via a private network and external lines are shared. PBX systems can be traditional or Internet-based via VOIP, voice over IP. A PBX phone system is ideal for companies with multiple locations or in support of a remote workforce.
