Cloud telephony vs traditional PBX


When speaking about the difference between Cloud telephony vs traditional PBX you will find a great similarity on the features but it all comes down to the pricing in most cases.

The Difference

Traditional PBX systems require a management unit that has to be purchased and installed by a certified technician in most cases. An extension /client extension has to be purchased for every user on the system and In some cases there is a licensing cost involved on a per user basis. All features are available though from voicemail, to extension numbers and custom greetings, even transfer to cell features. the cost is around 2 to 3 thousand for a standard system with voicemail with 4 extensions. If you buy IP based is about 30% more. Office expansions and additional users might sometimes require you buy additional PBX extension modules that are pricy. Cloud PBX do not require a physical management unit at your premises, it only requires a good stable internet connection. For about 4 phones you will need approximately 500 kbps upload speed. For this kind of system you will only need to pay to a cloud based PBX provider for the line and PBX system usage plus the cost of the phones you will use at your premises. The price varies from 24.99 to 50.00 /mo depending on the provider but the features you gain are as if you were to buy an enterprise level PBX system. Some of the features provided are: – Voice, fax, free
