A business VOIP phone system can reduce your monthly phone bill when compared to traditional phone systems. We host the equipment in the cloud, removing the hassle of tangled wires and bulky machinery. With VOIP, you are able to eliminate the cost of buying and maintaining physical equipment.
Business VOIP solutions can be either hosted PBX system or an on-premise PBX solution.
Hosted PBX solutions allow small and mid-sized businesses a sophisticated telephone system without investment in equipment. Hosted PBX lets employees work from their home, a hotel or on their cell phone while still being connected to the same office telephone system transfer callers, put them on hold with music, set up conference calls or have the phone answered by an automated attendant who can direct callers to different departments.

On Premise PBX
Also known as an IP-PBX phone system, On Premise PBX are similar to a traditional PBX systems residing in a computer equipment room or phone closet. The main difference is that IP routing is done with advanced technology. Signaling is done with an IP phone to the IP-PBX server using a Local Area Network (LAN).
Calls can go through a traditional phone company as well as voice over Internet (VoIP) using SIP trunking. Gateway cards are used to connect the system to the traditional phone company provider. The provider can be the one that already provides service, though a SIP trunk can be configured for use with an Internet service telephone provider (ISTP).
All your phone system features are delivered over your Internet connection. This means upgrades to your phone system happen automatically – one less thing for you to worry about.
