There are various similar definitions all over the internet, but to sum it all up, Cloud PBX is a virtual phone system, hosted entirely on servers in off-site data centres, that provides a secure and reliable business phone system through the internet.
A Cloud PBX has advanced features that trump a traditional PBX phone system. For one, it offers a non-technical administrator the ease of setting everything up. Using PBX, a company can connect more phones as compared to physical phone lines. PBX also provides additional features such as voicemail, transfers, interactive voice response (IVR) menus, call recording, and automatic call distributor (ACD) queues. Traditional PBX is a PBX system where all hardware is run on-premise through the business’s server.
