Consensus Hosted PBX IP Phone

Cloud PBX Explained

In very simple terms, a hosted, cloud or virtual pbx is a system that terminates over IP (Internet Protocol), or VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol). All you need is a network point and off you go.

With the advent of fibre, this is an increasingly popular and preferred service. The customer of today demands quality from their service providers. Your first point of contact is usually telephonic. You need to make it count. Stability and uptime is key.

There are a few things to consider when going the hosted route, get in touch with us to view your options.

A New Way to Look at Virtual PBX

Consensus’s Hosted PBX service has minimal setup costs, and it only takes a few hours to configure. You’ll never have to worry about purchasing expensive hardware again, and getting stuck with the wrong system will be a thing of the past.

LTE (Long Term Evolution)

Voice over LTE is a very popular method as a voice service these days. Making up a good 90% of all Hosted or Cloud Service voice solutions. Whilst LTE is fantastic, you can’t beat fibre. For this reason, if we can get fibre, we generally use LTE as a temporary solution until the fibre arrives

Fibre to the Business

Fibre to the business is most definitely the first choice for voice and data. Once your fibre has been delivered, there is no better solution for voice and data. Your fibre line will also be split to allow dedicated bandwidth for your calls. What this means is, your calls won’t be effected by data usage
