IP Telephones For IP PBX
An IP telephone system uses packet-switched Voice over IP (VoIP), or Internet telephony, to transmit telephone calls over the Internet as opposed to the circuit-switched telephony used by the traditional Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). Also known as VoIP phone systems, IP telephone systems typically comprise a VoIP private branch exchange (an IP PBX) and desktop VoIP phones (IP Phones) that connect to a VoIP service provider via a Local Area Network (LAN).
One of the key advantages to IP telephone systems is that whereas long-distance calls on a regular phone system can be cost prohibitive, the same calls on an IP phone system are free — there are no fees beyond the cost of Internet access.
IP Phones for Hosted Telephony
The best way to choose an IP Telephone for use with your Hosted PBX solution is to ask your hosted telephony provider for their recommendation because they will be able to tell you which IP phones are best suited to their particular VoIP Telephony platform to enable easy use of the IP PBX features and ensure high quality and reliable VoIP communications.
