What is a virtual PBX?

A PBX, or private branch exchange, is a phone system for an enterprise or office that connects telephone lines during a call. Human operators did the switching in the past. Now it’s automatic – and available in the cloud!

A Virtual PBX is hosted by a service provider in the cloud, making it not only more affordable, but easier to use for startups and small businesses. You can get professional phone system features like automated greetings and VoIP on your existing smartphones, no matter where you work.

What is a cloud PBX? What’s a hosted PBX service? Are they different?
