Fixed Telephone System
What are business fixed telephone systems?
Some of the most useful capabilities of a business telephone system include the following:
There are a few different types of telephone systems suitable for small office or business use: multi-line, VoIP, PBX, and Cloud-based phone systems. These office phone systems are differentiated primarily by the technology used and the cost and the service provider. Most of the communications functions of one type of system can be replicated on the other systems, but the cost to do so can vary drastically.
NBN Compatible PBX Phone Systems
PBX stands for private branch exchange, and it is essentially a private phone network for the office. It routes incoming and outgoing voice calls through the business’s phone lines and offers a variety of advanced features like call holding, routing to extensions, and conference calling, which are essential for doing business.
A PBX phone system is different from a standard multi-line phone system in that the call switching and routing does not occur directly through the phone unit, but rather is centralised. This makes a PBX more easily scalable and often more cost-effective than a key system. An NBN compatible PBX system can also be hosted in the Cloud (called a host PBX or virtual PBX) and handle VoIP calls (called IP-PBX). These systems are very flexible.

Multi-line Phone Systems
Multi-line phone systems are phones that can have several lines run through the same unit, allowing the operator to answer each phone number individually or send calls to voicemail. These business phone systems are fairly basic, making them a great fit for many small businesses. Simple 2-to-10 line phone systems have separate telephone units, allowing multiple people to be on a call—say, a receptionist and a manager—at the same time.
More complex 10-to-100+ line phone systems allow for even more employees to take or make calls simultaneously. With either phone system, you can handle a local line or toll-free number.
When shopping for a new multi-line phone system, the biggest thing to look out for is how many lines it supports and compare that to how many users you have on your system. You don’t want to pay for more than you need, but you also want a business phone service that allows you some room to grow.
The multi-line telephone is your basic small business telephone system. It is the sturdy, reliable office phone system that you find in every professional office. It’s the reliable device to unify communication and stay in touch with customers.
