IP PBX by EMS
An IP PBX or VoIP phone system replaces the traditional PBX or phone system. It provides employee mobility, with a single portable extension number, the ability to hold audio and video conferences, and call free associates using Voice-over-Internet-Protocol (VoIP). All calls are sent via packets over the data network rather than using traditional telephone networks. Using the VoIP gateway, you can connect your existing phone line to the IP PBX and make and receive phone calls through a regular PSTN line.
SERVICE & PRODUCT BENEFITS
An IP-PBX phone business system will reside on your network using an existing LAN. The PBX server is only remotely long, so the signal distance and time (latency) are very short and not dependent on traveling over the Internet and other networks.
When using a VoIP host, the initial cost may be lower, but the monthly subscription fee is ongoing and higher over time when compared to IP-PBX. An IP-PBX owned business will typically generate lower average monthly operating costs especially for systems with a higher number of users.
IP-PBX systems will be much more familiar to computers of intelligent people, especially someone who has experience with the network. This can apply to Asterisk-based systems that have a front-end GUI like FreePBX.
GUI from IP-PBX will be much more user friendly than traditional PBX. This allows for easier change and addition.
IP-based phones, are like PCs – move them from one connection to another and they find home and connect right back to the PBX server. No longer are the days when simple mobile phones need to have cross-connecting turns and phone technicians making service calls are billed.
Having the ability to receive and listen to your messages from your Outlook inbox, along with a fax PDF enhances communication and productivity. Integration with job applications, such as CRM packages can help business performance.
Can be added to an existing system and connected via an Internet connection. (Lower cost, with IP-phone being the main cost of hardware required.)
Employees can connect IP-compatible phones at home for their internet connection and extension calls.
Using SIP trunking with an in-house IP-PBX can lower the cost to the VoIP provider; reducing phone bills, especially for long distance and international calls.
The big companies that use PBX now focus on IP connectivity, but even better are all the new corporations that are building on Asterisk IP-PBXs at lower prices and neutral hardware vendors.
