What is Voice over IP - VoIP?

What is Voice over IP PBX?
VoIP PBX - Voice Over Internet Protocol Private Branch eXchange - is a customer premises business phone system that manages telephones throughout the enterprise and acts as a gateway to both voice and data networks. VoIP PBX enables voice calling using a network instead of standard telephone infrastructure. Telephones can be connected to the VoIP PBX via the network and calls can be routed via the network instead of the standard public switched telephone network. In other words, VoIP PBX or IP PBX is a telephony system that makes use of the IP data networks to facilitate telecommunication.
How does VoIP PBX work?
The basic architecture of an IP PBX phone system consists of an VoIP PBX server, one or more SIP phones or VoIP phones, and a VoIP gateway, if connecting to the existing PSTN lines. The VoIP PBX server functions quite similar to a proxy server. The SIP or VoIP phones, which can be either hardware phones or soft phones, have to register with the IP PBX server, and when they wish to make a call to another phone , a request is sent to the VoIP PBX server to establish the connection. The VoIP PBX server will have a directory of all users/phones and their respective SIP addresses, and using this info it could connect an internal call or route an external call via a VoIP service provider or a VoIP gateway, whichever is applicable.
