What is the difference between digital and VOIP phones?
Digital telephone systems are similar to traditional analog telephones, and transport the telephone signal through dedicated lines to a central switch. Unlike traditional phone systems, however, digital phones convert the analog voice signal to a digital signal for transportation. Digital phone systems are limited in that they must have a connection to a central switch. VOIP phone systems, on the other hand, remove the direct connection to the switch by changing the phone into a network device, meaning that the voice signals are converted into digital signals and transported over an Ethernet network. In this way, the VOIP phone can be placed anywhere that data network (internet) connection is available. The drawback of a VOIP phone system is the constraints on quality that the data network places on the system. Both digital phones and VOIP phones have a long list of strengths over traditional analog telephones.
What is an IP PBX solution?
A PBX (private branch exchange) is the system that connects a telephone system to the outside, public telephone network, as well as mobile networks. An IP PBX solution is a private branch exchange that uses an internet connection to connect to the telephone network, while combining voice and data networks. In this way, IP PBX do not need separate networks for phone and data communications, but can share the same network, putting Internet access, VOIP communications, and traditional phone communications onto one single line for each user.
