Small office PBX telephone systems aren't what they used to be. In fact, they're much more.
Next-generation small office PBX telephone systems offer the features of a conventional PBX (Private Branch Exchange). A conventional PBX shares and manages multiple lines within a company and automatically routes incoming calls to specific extensions. It requires two networks, one for data and another for voice.
But today's small office PBX telephone systems are often part of an advanced unified communications solution. These small office PBX telephone systems run on Internet Protocol (IP) networks, the same network your company uses for data and Internet connectivity.
