Standard IPBX or Centrex: different locations

Between standard IPBX and Centrex, the difference is enormous even if they commonly exploit IP telephony:

  • A switchboard of the IPBX type (Internet Protocol Branch eXchange or private telephone switchboard via the Internet) is a complex system . To work, its infrastructure must be installed within your company . It uses internet protocol (IP) on your local network to route your business communications internally and externally. This technology also reduces telecommunication costs and maintenance costs. It makes it possible to deploy new lines and provide new services without making additional purchases.
  • The Centrex is also a business telephony solution . It is hosted by your service provider , therefore outside your premises. Just like the IPBX, it centralizes all your incoming and outgoing calls. It will then automatically redirect them to external or internal recipients. Outsourcing the switchboard is both practical and economical for single-site or multi-site companies. It connects the tools you usually use (fax, telephones, videoconferences, PC, etc.) to a single network.

Installing an IPBX or Centrex switchboard in your company: the steps

He will take care of the opening of your line and your access to the telecommunications networks he manages.

Thereafter, maintenance of the PBX can usually be performed remotely.
