What are On-Premise Phone Systems?

There are two types of business telephone systems: on-premise and hosted. On-premise systems are those in which all the hardware required to manage the system is physically positioned in a secure spot in your office, such as on a computer hardware rack or in a purpose-built phone closet. It can either be connected by phone wires or use the internet connection. 

On-premise systems offer the advantage of being under the direct control of the business owner. This can be seen as an advantage or a disadvantage, depending on the business owner’s level of expertise and willingness to handle system maintenance, costs and management tasks.

Life span of On Premise Phone Systems normally up to 10 years, though ever-changing technology update means required software needs to be updated time to time.

The Benefits of In-Premise Phone Systems

Infrastructure is owned and managed by the business. Certain companies like to have complete control over their phone systems at all times. While hosted communication technologies such as VoIP might make life easier for many businesses, this isn’t always the case. Some businesses value the peace of mind that comes from having their phone system controlled by their own phone technician or IT department.

Some premise-based phone systems don’t rely on the internet for internal calls which is very handy when internet is down. Instead, they use a combination of on-premises equipment and cloud resources. This gives organisations the flexibility to choose the right mix of advanced features for their needs.

Frequently Asked Questions About
In-Premise Phone Systems

On-premise phone systems are made up of two main components. The first is the base unit, which houses the system’s circuitry and connects to all of the phones in your office. The second component is the handsets themselves. 

On-premise phone systems offer many advantages over their cloud-based counterparts. Perhaps most importantly, they allow you to maintain complete control over your phone system. You can decide which features to enable or disable, add new users as needed, and make changes to your system without relying on a third-party provider. 

In addition, on-premise systems tend to be more reliable than cloud-based solutions since they are not dependent on a stable internet connection.

On-premise phone systems have long been the standard for businesses. With an on-premise system, all of the hardware needed to run the system is physically located in your office. While many businesses are switching to hosted phone systems, many prefer to have a physical console in their office. For some, it’s about sticking with what you know, while for others, it’s about being in complete control of the location, maintenance, and general upkeep of the system itself.

A PBX, or Private Branch Exchange, is a telephone system used within a private organisation, typically an enterprise. In contrast to VoIP systems, which use an IP network for telephone calls, a PBX uses the public switched telephone network (PSTN). With a PBX system, an organisation can have two or more phone lines connected to the same PBX box. This allows multiple users to share a single line. 

On the other hand, A VoIP system uses an IP network for its connections. VoIP systems can be either on-premises or hosted. With on-premises VoIP systems, all of the necessary equipment is installed and maintained on-site by the organisation. On the other hand, hosted VoIP systems are maintained and managed by VoIP providers.
