What is an IP-PBX?An IP PBX ("Internet Protocol private branch exchange") is a phone system that operates over the Internet (or Internet Protocol, “IP”) as opposed to traditional analog phone lines.
IP PBXs generally cost less and provide as good or better quality as traditional landlines, plus they’re typically capable of providing advanced phone system features like mobility, call routing, conferencing, video, instant messaging communication, and more.
How an IP-PBX Works?
An IP PBX connects a PBX server with VoIP phones, providing the benefits of both call distribution and multi-device integration. Calls on an IP PBX system can be routed to different locations and devices all at the same time, as long as those devices and VoIP users are registered in the VoIP server.
This is one of the main differences of an IP PBX versus the traditional phone system. The IP PBX has no physical boundaries, as it connects to devices via the internet.
VoIP works in the following sequence:
1. Analog telephone calls are converted to digital signals.
2. The digital signals are translated into Internet Protocol (IP) packets.
3. The IP packets are converted back to telephone signals, and received by a telephone on the other end.
VoIP makes voice and data networks converge: users had access to the internet, analog phone calls, and VoIP phone calls all through the same line.

The Different Between IP PBX and Traditional PBX (Pros and Cons)PBX Pros:
Reliability: PBX systems still operate through phone lines, which can protect your communications from power outages and internet failures. Some phone lines still operate during power outages, allowing you to keep your phone lines up.
Accessibility: Companies that use PBX systems house their own equipment and employ their own IT staff to maintain and run the system. This gives them full control and access to the equipment and software.
Sound Quality: Calls travel through landlines, which makes for the best sound quality and reliability over time.
Convenience: Because PBX systems existed for so long, many companies already have the equipment they need. Instead of paying for and installing new hardware, these companies can continue to use what they have. For companies without internet access, a PBX system is the best option.
Availability: Though PBX systems still subsist, digital technology has almost completely replaced analog. Unless a company already has a PBX system in place, this option isn’t available.
Cost: The cabinets that house PBX systems are expensive, but necessary for operation. Even after paying for the equipment, companies also have to pay IT salaries and monthly charges.
Limitations: PBX systems have a limit of phone numbers and lines, and any additional ones can be costly. Moreover, calls can only go through specific devices within the system, instead of allowing for flexible call options.
IP PBX Pros:
Usability: IP PBX systems require less technical knowledge to use and maintain. Companies won’t need dedicated IT departments or sophisticated training to use and update their systems.
Cost: PBX systems can have high monthly subscription charges. IP PBX systems can lower monthly operating costs, even if there are a high number of users. Support, upgrades, and maintenance are usually inexpensive and companies don’t have to sign contracts with a hosting company.
Phone Mobility: IP PBX systems are IP based, which allows users to move phones to different connections without issue, much like PCs.
Extensions: To add a remote or branch extension to a system, users just need another IP phone and internet connection. This allows companies to have phone access from home and other locations.
IP PBX Cons:
Unreliability: An IP PBX system is only as reliable as the internet connection it uses. If a company loses power, has equipment malfunctions, or loses their internet connection, the telephone system can’t work.
Sound Quality: Similarly, if a company’s internet signal and broadband strength is low or faulty, calls will lose sound quality. If the internet network provider is unable to support a high quality of sound on the local network, communication will be unreliable.
Limited Options: An IP PBX system is hosted onsite. Though this gives the company more control, it also limits them to the resources they can access and afford.
Equipment: Companies still have to use IP phones to operate this system.
Why Should You Choose IP-PBX
Let’s explore how an IP PBX benefits an organization in regards to cost, service, management, and functionality. Here are 6 of the advantages an IP PBX could bring to your company.
Cost Savings & Reduced IT Infrastructure
An IP PBX eliminates the need for dedicated phone lines and integrates voice and data networks into one. And, because calls are sent over the Internet, they also reduce costs for local and international calls.
Flexible Deployment Options
IP PBXs can be deployed on-premise or in the Cloud, giving businesses the freedom to select the communications solution that’s right for their organization.
IP PBXs are software-based phone systems. This provides more opportunity for the integration of other systems and inclusion of more capabilities, such as chat, fax, PMS, and customer relationship management (CRM) platform integration.
Improved Multi-Location Communications
Many functions, such as voice message storage, recording managerment, international call routing, and endpoint administration, can all be handled at a central location. This reduces the need for additional equipment and personnel at the remote or branch offices.
Making even simple moves, adds, or changes to phone systems based on traditional telephony technology are difficult and often require the help of a technician. IP-based phone systems can be updated by in-house staff in a matter of minutes.
Mobile Device Integration
With an IP PBX, you can use your cell phone to make and receive calls using the same phone number and extension as your desk phone. This is done by downloading a mobile app, which fully integrates with your company’s IP PBX system.
