Traditional Analogue PABX Switchboards
What Is A Traditional PABX Switchboard Telephone System?
A traditional PABX switchboard telephone system connects callers through analogue or digital ISDN PSTN Telkom phone lines/trunks to a switchboard with multiple analogue or digital extensions. These lines connect to the same type of ports/interface card on the PABX system. In some cases the vendor has evolved to support VoIP on a card which plugs into the PABX system. VoIP enables a legacy system to allow customers to make use of VoIP calling for cheaper outbound phone calls. For the vendors who don’t support VoIP cards, VoIP providers usually supply a VoIP Gateway which can connect to the PABX switchboard using the same type of ports/interface card on your PABX switchboard system, thereby replacing (or working on-top of) the phone lines which were connected to these ports.
These systems typically have basic Analogue or Digital extension phones which provide call functionality such as speakerphone and busy lamp field (BLF). Traditional PABX switchboards run on their own Cat3 cabled infrastructure which is completely separate to any Data network.
Key Benefits Of A Traditional PABX Switchboard
Traditional PABX switchboards operate well but generally have a lifespan before the hardware components such as phone line/trunk and extension cards become obsolete or are damaged by lightning, and the system becomes increasingly difficult to support by private switchboard suppliers.
Traditional PABX switchboards are at times cheaper to purchase, due to the basic technology they offer.
Many businesses still have these legacy PABX switchboards in place and continue to invest in traditional PABX switchboard systems, however depending on the company’s requirements and expectations the rise and demand of VoIP, IP and Hosted systems are becoming more popular choices for a company’s communications.
IP PABX Switchboards
What Is An IP PABX Switchboard System?
An IP PABX is certainly an upgrade to a traditional analogue PABX system. Investing in an IP PABX is usually more expensive than a traditional PABX but the overall Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is much lower due to the cost savings a customer can experience with cheaper VoIP telephone line rentals and cheaper VoIP telephone call rates. Customers can upgrade their traditional switchboards to IP PABX switchboards or Hosted PABX switchboards if they are renting the system, in order to obtain enhanced functionality and stability. IP PABX switchboards also provide advanced features and functionality which can increase productivity and contactability and drive down call and support expenditure.
Key Benefits Of An IP PABX Switchboard
IP PABX switchboards have a hybrid functionality to still connect to traditional Telkom PSTN phone lines such as Analogue, ISDN BRI and PRI phone lines, however to really get the most from your IP PABX switchboard system, these systems provide a native integration to a VoIP provider by using SIP VoIP Telephone Line Trunks. This limits the amount of physical cabled wiring required into a company as SIP Trunks can be delivered over most internet connections - even Wireless internet! A true IP PABX switchboard telephone system provides SIP trunking via activation or license, whilst some traditional PABX's which have evolved to provide VoIP support on a card which plugs into the PABX switchboard system and supports a certain amount of concurrent calls (usually in increments of 8 channels).
IP PABX switchboards also use IP telephone handset instruments, which connect onto your existing PC network Cat 5 cable. This means that no additional cabling needs to be installed for the switchboard and extension handsets, if the customer has existing PC network cable points in place.
IP PABX switchboards are also easier to maintain and things like managing moves happen seamlessly - it's as easy as unplugging a phone instrument, and plugging it back into a PC network point anywhere on the clients LAN network. As there are no cards which can limit the capacity and scalability, usually adding another phone line or extension, the user requires a license activation or configuration.
IP PABX switchboards are good for companies that want direct control over exactly how their PABX switchboard telephone system is configured in-house, and don’t want to pay subscription fees associated with other PABX switchboard options, such as hosted PABX switchboard systems.
Virtual And Cloud Based PABX Switchboards
What Is A Hosted PABX Switchboard?
A Hosted PABX switchboard is a private branch exchange (PABX) switchboard delivered as a hosted cloud PABX switchboard service or VoIP hosted PABX. It’s also known as a Virtual PABX switchboard as it operates on an exchange server. The advantages and benefits are that there is no on-site installation, operation and maintenance costs of the VoIP PABX switchboards as their VoIP service provider hosts the PABX switchboard on their exchange server.
A Hosted PABX switchboard still offers all the features and benefits of a traditional PABX system which a company needs to utilise in order to operate their telephone lines and telephone calls. Features of hosted business PABX switchboard phone system include IVR automated greetings, voicemail, conferencing, call billing reports and telephone voice recording.
Companies that offer Hosted PABX switchboards as a service to their customers manage the call routing or switching as well as all maintenance involved in the hosted PABX switchboard service.
There are three ways that a hosted PABX switchboard works; either over the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) over the Internet (hosted IP PABX switchboards via Internet Telephony or Voice Over IP, VoIP) or with a combination of the two making use of ADSL, LTE or Fibre internet connectivity.
Key Benefits Of A Hosted PABX Switchboard Solution
