Hosted VoIP is another term for Hosted PBX. “Hosted” means to say that the hardware and PBX is hosted at an off-site location from where the VoIP telephone service is being used. An office can have VoIP telephone service that powers their phones in the office, but their PBX could be hosted at their VoIP providers data center, thus the term: hosted VoIP.
Benefits of Hosted VoIP
There are many benefits to using Hosted VoIP rather than a traditional phone system, or an on-premise VoIP system. The main benefit is cost- a Hosted VoIP system costs much less to set-up than an on-premise PBX. In many cases, there are no set-up fees for a hosted VoIP system. Hosted VoIP phone systems fall under operational expenditure rather than capital expenditure, which also make hosted VoIP systems attractive to businesses.
Another benefit to a hosted VoIP system over an on-premise PBX is that hosted VoIP providers will take care of all the set-up and installation, meaning you do not need to be a telecom or VoIP expert in order to get hosted VoIP.
