Short for Private Branch eXchange, a private telephone network used within an enterprise. Users of the PBX share a certain number of outside lines for making telephone calls external to the PBX. Most medium-sized and larger companies use a PBX because it’s much less expensive than connecting an external telephone line to every telephone in the organization. In addition, it’s easier to call someone within a PBX because the number you need to dial is typically just 3 or 4 digits. A Public Branch Exchange (PBX) is the technology that replaced the manual switchboard: think of the classic imagery attached of operators physically patching lines. VoIP PBX systems are now beginning to replace traditional PBX systems. Yes, technology changes that fast. Many companies are still using their legacy PBX systems as they made a large investment on it within the last 15 years, but the bulk of PBX systems purchases were about ten years ago. Now, as systems begin to age IT departments are beginning to replace the decaying technology with the more modern VoIP PBX alternative.

3. HOW IT WORKS?
An IP PBX system consists of one or more SIP phones, an IP PBX server and optionally a VOIP Gateway to connect to existing PSTN lines. The IP PBX server functions in a similar manner to a proxy server: SIP clients, being either soft phones or hardware-based phones, register with the IP PBX server, and when they wish to make a call they ask the IP PBX to establish the connection. The IP PBX has a directory of all phones/users and their corresponding SIP address and thus is able to connect an internal call or route an external call via either a VOIP gateway or a VOIP service provider.
