If you're considering purchasing a VOIP PBX system to replace a current PBX system that uses the traditional land-line network, you're probably worrying about how difficult the changeover and set-up will be. This really depends on a few main factors:
* Do you already have an Internet network wired to each desktop that needs a phone?
* Do you need to keep the same extension numbers when you switch over to the VOIP PBX system?
* Do you plan to buy VOIP-enabled phones? Or will you use current phones with adapters?
* Do you plan to purchase a virtual PBX system, or one that you need to set up and configure yourself?
If you already have a desktop Internet network, hooked up to a high-speed connection, you are ahead of the game. And one way to avoid messy set-up and configuring of the PBX system is to consider purhasing a hosted or virtual PBX. With a hosted system, the provider takes care of virtually everything. All you have to do is connect your phones to the network and then configure the system via a protected web site.
