Hosted PBX Vs On-Premise PBX

First of all, what is a PBX (Private Branch Exchange)?  Quite simply, it’s a phone system.  The PBX got its start many decades ago to allow multiple extensions to have access to the PSTN(Public Switched Telephone Network) without having to have their own dedicated line and phone number.

Many companies are in the dilemma of whether they should purchase an On-Premise PBX or a Hosted PBX, and this is where the battle of the Hosted PBX Vs the On-Premise PBX begins. It all depends on the size of the company and what they wish to gain from their PBX.

To make a decision, a clear picture of both PBX options should be available. Below are the advantages and disadvantages of a Hosted PBX and an On-Premise PBX:
