For small businesses, VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) and PBX (Private Branch Exchange) are two common phone system technologies that offer effective and affordable communication solutions.
VoIP technology enables voice communication over the internet, converting analog voice signals into digital data packets. This allows businesses to make phone calls using an internet connection instead of traditional phone lines.
A private telephone network used within a business is known as a PBX (Private Branch Exchange). It allows users to share a limited number of external phone lines for making and receiving calls. PBX systems can be either traditional (using physical hardware) or IP-based (using internet connectivity).
