What is Hosted Telephony?
The conventional way for a businesses to have a telephone system would be to get incoming lines from one of the many providers available. Then have a telephone system (PBX) that connects to those lines and has individual extension’s connected to the system via either traditional telephone cabling or through structured category 5 or 6 cabling.
This is a tried and tested method that has provided businesses with telephony systems for many years and still is today. However it is very expensive, compared to a hosted system.
