How Does Hosted PBX Work?


A Hosted PBX system is a cloud-based software program that delivers PBX functionality over the internet using a cluster of servers located in a data centre. Multiple data centres are typically used for redundancy. The software has the ability to deliver a vast number of individual PBX systems with each one being allocated a specific user ID and IP address.

Hosted PBX works by using business VoIP and SIP Trunk technology to make and receive phone calls over the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network). A landline telephone number allocated to the Cloud PBX extension is used to make and receive calls.

How to Set Up Hosted PBX

Bandwidth for Hosted PBX

In order for a Hosted PBX to deliver clear communication, a bandwidth of 100kbps upload/download speed is needed for the extension to work without interference. As a general rule, you should allocate 100kbps of bandwidth per extension. It is also advisable to invest in a good quality business router with a QoS feature.
