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.
In this short video, CEO, Jeff Matson explains comprehensive PBX phone system features offered by Threshold Communications, including options that allow for call forwarding, and find-me-follow-me call features.
Hosted Phone System
Hosted phone systems can offer the same functionality as PBX systems, but without the equipment costs of traditional private networks.
With a hosted business phone solution, equipment is housed and maintained by a local phone service provider and services are provided to the business. Also called central office exchange service or centrex. A hosted phone system that functions over the Internet is called IP PBX or VoIP, depending on the technology used.
