There are three main phone system options; Hosted telephony (VoIP), IP Phone Systems and Hybrid Phone Systems.
Click below to view more information about Hosted, IP and Hybrid Phone Systems.
Hosted Phone Systems
When you choose a Hosted Phone system you are effectively renting the system rather than purchasing your own dedicated system.
It is a low-cost alternative to an IP or Hybrid PBX Phone System because you don’t have significant capital costs.
Hosted Phone Systems are…
…cloud-based which means.you connect to it using an internet connection (IP technology.)
Hybrid Phone System
A Hybrid Phone System combines the different types of connection technology (ISDN, Analogue, Digital and IP) into a single modern and flexible phone system.
Unlike an IP Phone System, it cannot be put onto an industry standard server or be cloud-based; it needs its own dedicated PBX box. These can…
…be purchased outright, rented or leased. Most businesses opt for a Hybrid Phone System when they have ISDN, Analogue or Digital infrastructure but want the advantages that IP brings to the table.
IP Phone System
An IP Phone System uses Internet Protocol (IP) technology which means you use your internet connection, Local Area Network (LAN) or both.
With an IP Phone System, you purchase the phone system for your own use and you choose where to host it; on-premise or off-site…
…These can be purchased outright, rented or leased.
