“I thought you guys just ate doughnuts …” were the words of the cashier to Sgt. Al Powell in Die Hard in the convenience store just down the street from The Nakatomi Plaza.
Well some of my visitors might think that I just do 4G routers or IT stuff and not telephone stuff. Do you ever wonder where the “Telecom” in my company name comes from? Knowledge of telecommunications which includes telephones. Besides, newer networked PBX systems do a very nice job of crossing over into the IT and Networking Realm that I am known for be so good at. It’s hard to do IT and Networking for as long as I have and not have bumped into VoIP. In fact I have done a lot of it in past jobs on land. And setting up Cisco Routers for VoIP is a lot more difficult than modern PBX network appliances. But set that aside for a minute.
PBX’s traditionally cost a lot of money … and often require a “specialist” to come in an program any changes for you. Lots of wiring to get all of the extensions powered up and connected back to the PBX. Most of that stuff goes away with Network PBX appliance. Also what can go away is the high cost of purchasing the hardware.
You might be thinking of changing out your PBX on your marine vessel … Motor Yacht or Sailing Yacht … for more modern “network” Private Branch Exchange, or if you don’t have a PBX and need to get one and Start Fresh. If you put off getting a PBX because of the cost of purchasing and maintaining one … your time may have finally come.
Prices from $500.00 for the main PBX unit. A little bit more cost to purchase the Desk Phones that speak the right protocols. And someone that can make all of that work for you and instruct you on how to use and manage it yourself, for the most part.
