A PBX, or Private Branch Exchange, is an office telephone system that provides your business with telephone features like call transfer, call hold, call-park, call waiting, auto-attendant and voicemail. A Hosted service means that we host the phone system in our facilities and you do not need to buy an expensive on-premise PBX. Aasani business-grade PBX service provides local, long distance and international calling and standard business PBX features. It offers your organization a one-stop, fully functional, low-cost enterprise voice solution that replaces costly traditional telephone carriers and PBX vendors.
Hosted PBX is based on Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), a method by which voice is digitized and transmitted in digital packets rather than using traditional copper phone lines of the public switched telephone network (PSTN). The entire telephone network throughout the world is slowly converting to VoIP. Every VOIP telephone has a unique IP Address. Thus Hosted PBX translates the public phone network to an IP address. When a phone number is dialed, the Hosted PBX switch looks up the IP address and delivers the call to the VOIP telephone.
Hosted PBX provides great features and easy install and management. These benefits include: Easy installation – phones plug into your existing Local Area Network (LAN) Easy expansion – just add phones without more PBX hardware or upgrades Low capital expenditure – purchase only phones, not an expensive PBX system Free moves, adds, changes or self-service – no need for a PBX expert Location independence – you can use the same PBX across multiple sites Telecommuting for remote workers and home offices Portability- move your phones to a new office without hassle Enhanced features – voicemail to email, simultaneous ring to cell phones etc. One-stop service for local, long distance and PBX
Aasani provides 99.9% up time and offers downtime credits. Aasani is not responsible for incidents beyond its control, such as failure in the customer’s LAN or customer’s ISP. Aasani Hosted PBX is a redundant, carrier-grade system offering the same or better reliability as your traditional phone company. Our Hosted PBX system quality begins with the implementation of the Broadsoft switching platform, also used by major carriers like ATT and Verizon. Our Hosted PBX system is built with redundant network servers and redundant internet and power in a hardened, carrier quality co-location facility. We then increased our redundancy by creating two separate switching centers that are fully redundant and mirrored, so that any natural disaster at one site will not bring our hosted PBX system down.
