A PBX, or Private Branch Exchange, is an office telephone system that provides your business with telephone features like call transfer, call hold, call-park, call waiting, auto-attendant and voicemail.
A Cloud or Hosted service means that we host the phone system in our facilities and you do not need to buy an expensive on-premise PBX. Our Cloud PBX service provides local, long distance and international calling and standard business class 5 PBX features. It offers your organization a one-stop, fully functional, advanced enterprise communication solution that replaces costly traditional telephone carriers and PBX systems.
What is VOIP?
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a technology that enables voice transmissions to travel over the Internet, rather than over traditional phone lines. Speech is converted to packets of voice data which are sent. Are you interested in learning more about VoIP and how it can empower your business phone system?

Can I do Call Forwarding?
Yes, our service will allow you to forward calls to your mobile device or any other phone number. This is a simple yet powerful tool that every employee can control from their mobile app.
Do you provide Audio conferencing?

How does Cloud PBX service work?
Hosted PBX is based on Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), a method by which voice is digitized and transmitted in digital packets rather than using traditional copper phone lines of the public switched telephone network (PSTN).
Every VOIP telephone has a unique IP Address. Thus Cloud PBX translates the public phone network to an IP address. When a phone number is dialed, the Hosted PBX switch looks up the IP address and delivers the call to the VOIP telephone.

What is SIP?
SIP is the acronym for Session Initiated Protocol standard, a VoIP protocol standard. It is widely adopted as the preferred industry standard by phone and switch manufacturers.
Can I use my existing VoIP phones?
Yes, as long as they are the supported VoIP phones, i.e. Polycom, Cisco, Linksys, Aastra etc.
Can I record my own music-on-hold or auto-attendant greetings?
Yes, you can upload any recorded greeting or music on hold, or you can call in to the voice portal to record new auto-attendant greetings on an ad-hoc basis. If you have audio file from your old PBX, you can use it.
Our system allows you to set up custom voice menus that recognize telephone pad inputs or DTMF tones. This way, incoming calls go to the right department or extension. You might also hear IVR referred to as an automated attendant, voice menu, or phone tree. An example of an IVR prompt might be, "Press 1 for Sales Press 2 for Technical Support."
Do you offer hunt groups?
Yes, we offer hunt groups at no additional charge. A hunt group can ring a group of phones on a sequential or simultaneous basis.
