what is a cloud hosted pbx?

A Cloud hosted PBX, also known as a Cloud-based PBX or Virtual PBX, is a phone system that operates and is hosted in the cloud rather than on-premises. PBX stands for Private Branch Exchange, which traditionally referred to a telephone system used within an organization to manage incoming and outgoing calls.


With a Cloud hosted PBX, the phone system is hosted and managed by a service provider in a remote data center or the cloud. It leverages internet connectivity to route calls, manage phone features, and handle call processing. Users connect to the Cloud hosted PBX using IP phones, softphones (software-based phones), or mobile devices.

   1. Scalability: Cloud hosted PBX allows for easy scalability, as it can adapt to the changing needs of businesses. Adding or removing phone lines or features can be done quickly and efficiently without the need for physical infrastructure changes.

   2. Cost-effectiveness: Cloud hosted PBX eliminates the need for significant upfront investments in hardware, maintenance, and upgrades. It operates on a subscription-based model, allowing businesses to pay for the services they need without the burden of managing and maintaining the phone system infrastructure.

   3. Flexibility and Mobility: Cloud hosted PBX enables remote and mobile working by allowing employees to connect to the system from anywhere with internet access. Calls can be routed to any device, including mobile phones and laptops, ensuring employees can stay connected even when they are away from the office.
