IP PBX, SIP & VoIP FAQ
An IP PBX or VoIP phone system replaces a traditional PBX or phone system. It gives employees mobility with a single portable extension number – no need to hand out personal phone numbers, the ability to hold audio and video conferences, call colleagues for free, and make cheap, long distance phone calls using Voice-over-Internet-Protocol (VoIP). All calls are sent via packets over a data network instead of using the traditional phone network. With the use of a VoIP gateway, you can connect existing phone lines to the IP PBX and make and receive phone calls via a regular PSTN line. Today’s VoIP services often work hand in hand with Unified Communications solutions which can be in the form of an on-premise phone system or hosted PBX. With the advances in Voice over IP technology we see today, a high speed broadband internet connection ensures a call quality which rivals that of traditional phone lines.
