The traditional telephone system has served as a reliable and functional platform for businesses for many years. This system, the PBX or Private Branch Exchange, is an internal switchboard that routes multiple calls from a single access point to their correct destinations. Traditional telephone systems also have the ability to provide on hold music and voice direction menu options. Additionally, call management features, such as automatic call distribution (ACD), message recording, call transferring, text-to-speech, unified messaging, unified communications and mobility are available applications.
With the ability to support a mix of IP, digital and analog phones, our traditional platforms are ideal for organizations that want to keep using the existing digital phones as long as possible and evolve to IP in phases. For instance, you could give digital phones to local employees and more sophisticated IP devices to telecommuters and staff in remote offices. These platforms can be easily networked together to add capacity or link multiple locations into a cohesive, company-wide phone system.
