Voice over IP (VoIP) Telephone Systems

In 2015 BT announced that they will be switching off ISDN and PSTN networks by 2025. Many businesses rely on these legacy networks to service their phone systems. Not only are these options expensive, they will cease to exist in the not too distant future. Enter VoIP.

3CX Phone System is a software-based IP PBX that replaces a proprietary hardware PBX and the need for expensive ISDN lines. 3CX’s IP PBX has been developed based on the SIP standard, making it easier to manage and allowing you to use any SIP phone (software or hardware). We partner with 3CX and offer everything from pre-sales advice to installation and on-going support, give us a call on 0161 480 7385 to discuss how a VoIP phone system could benefit your business.

Just some of the benefits of 3CX Phone System:

  • Far less expensive to purchase and expand than a hardware-based PBX / PABX
  • Improve productivity with presence, desktop based call control and extension management
  • Integrated video conferencing, free for up to 25 participants
  • Inbuilt security exclusively developed to protect your PBX system from attacks
  • No need for separate phone wiring – phones use computer network, easy hot desking!
  • Delivery mobility using 3CX Clients on your Android / iOS Device
  • Choose between popular IP hardware phones or softphones – no vendor lock in
  • Save on monthly call costs using SIP trunks, VoIP providers or the Skype gateway!
  • Host on-premise, or in your private cloud with Google, Amazon or OVH
