What Is A Hosted Phone System?
A hosted phone system is a flexible, cost-effective alternative to a traditional telephone system.
Unlike a traditional phone system that requires a lot of routing and is hosted at your premises, a hosted PBX system runs across your internet connection and is based at Emerald’s data centre and in the cloud rather than your place of business.
The servers and applications of the hosted phone system, using the power of the Cloud, use your existing internet connection with the added advantage of not needing to purchase new hardware, other than new compatible handsets. Using the innovation of the Cloud has led to software integrations with phone systems which transform a new phone system into transforming a business, due to its advanced capabilities and features.
This type of phone system implementation is viewed as the primary utilisation model for any new phone system, embracing the future and leaving the 19th-century technology firmly in the past.
How Does A Hosted Phone System Work?
Unlike traditional phone systems which rely on physical telephone lines underground, hosted phone systems transmit call traffic over the internet as data. This gives you a telephone system that is hosted on the cloud, meaning you can use IP handsets, mobiles or even a desktop application to make and receive calls, allowing you to communicate wherever you are, whether in the office, on the road, or at home. The way you make a call does not change, meaning you and your staff will not notice any difference, and those contacting you will not have to do anything different.
A hosted phone system also removes the need for costly physical hardware on-site and analogue or ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) telephone lines from phone providers at expensive monthly costs.
It is also important to note that BT has stated all ISDN services related to PBX systems will be switched off in 2025. So if you are currently running a traditional analogue/digital telephone system it is best to start planning to upgrade now.
