Considering a system upgrade? Today, choosing which system is best for your business can come down to a number of factors. Hosted and Premise Systems offer essentially the same results, but their architecture, how they leverage network components provide a view of their attributes and differences. Our paper, Premise PBX, Hosted VoIP Attributes & Differences will give you insight on the respective advantages.
Hosted VoIP is “all the rage” today, and for good reason. A cloud PBX in Buffalo requires less hardware, reduces both upfront installation time and cost, enables mass reduction in Voice phone lines, and typically eliminates support expense over the life of the system. A traditional PBX can be a great solution for organizations that require re-purposing of older infrastructure, or components of an existing system.
You will want to consider many variables, and a brief on the relative advantages and differences discusses cabling requirements, electrical power, types of network connectivity, real estate (think rack space), as well as costs for circuits, usage plans, and so forth. Additionally, if you have multiple sites and with to network, a premise based PBX and a hosted VoIP system go about this differently.
Financially, the results tend to be relatively equal most of the time, but a hosted phone system does provide a bit more cost certainty, as one does not have to deal with manufacturer software upgrade costs or refresh programs on servers.
