More about PBX Phone Systems

PBX is a business telephone exchange for a specific business or office, rather than a system operated by an external carrier or telephone company. PBXs connect internal telephones of businesses, while also connecting the business to the Public Switched Telephone Network, or PSTN. They handle the processing of all calls within the PBX’s system, and they have all the telecommunications features that companies need to conduct day-to-day business built into the system itself, so that you won’t need to purchase them from the telephone company.
