A virtual PBX is an IP-based phone system that is hosted offsite and operates using Internet connections. Unlike traditional phone services, virtual phone system doesn’t require onsite PBX hardware and physical phone lines. It relies on cloud-based software & VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology to manage calls and is often hosted by the service provider or deployed in a cloud service. As a result, virtual PBX solution is often referred to as cloud PBX or hosted PBX. Typically, a virtual phone system offers all the functions of a traditional phone system and provides something beyond.
