What is IP-Centrex?

IP-Centrex is a way to significantly reduce your capital cost when purchasing a new phone system.  By letting us "Host" your phone system we can offer you the same features of systems costing ten of thousands for pennies on the dollar.  Our IP-Centrex has all the features of phone systems costing thousands of dollars usually for less than what you are paying just for your local service.

IP-Centrex Features

Lower capital investment cost: Since you use our infrastructure, the start-up costs for Centrex service are substantially lower than purchasing a phone system, like key systems, traditional PBXs or IP PBXs.

Scalability: With Centrex service, you can buy the exact number of lines that are needed, and readily add or remove lines. In contrast, when you remove a station from a PBX, there is no cost savings, since the equipment was already purchased. Also, when adding stations to a PBX, there are costs not only for the line cards, but periodically for new common equipment, like shelves to accommodate the line cards.

Simplicity: With Centrex service, we are responsible for installing and configuring the service. With a PBX, you or your Telecom consultant, takes on this responsibility.

Operations and Maintenance: We are responsible for the day-to-day operations and maintenance of Centrex. This includes adding new lines and changing faulty components. With a PBX, you would be responsible for these functions, as well as for keeping an inventory of spare parts.

Upgrades: One of the principles of Centrex is that as we continue to upgrade our services you would have the ability to access these new services without purchasing any additional hardware. This includes not only the major evolutionary upgrades, like from analog to IP, but also more mundane upgrades, like installing a new switch generic which offers more features.

Reliability: We monitor the network 24 x 7 and have staff to immediately respond to alarms and equipment failures.

Standardized Equipment: IP-Centrex station equipment uses standardized protocols and conforms to an open interface. This allows multiple equipment suppliers to manufacture Centrex Telephone, and you can purchase any suppliers' brand of IP-Telephone. This competition drives down station equipment prices. In contrast, many PBXs use proprietary station sets, and the customer can purchase only the station sets designed to work with a particular PBX. Since you are locked into a limited selection of telephones, PBX station prices are often higher than comparable IP-Centrex station equipment.

Eliminate floor space and environmental requirements: With Centrex service, the infrastructure is located on our premises. In contrast, PBX and key system solutions are located on the customer premises. You must provide floor space for the equipment. You must also ensure that the room the equipment is in meets certain environmental requirements, such as air conditioning, humidity, and fire protection.

Features: Of course, Centrex offers a wide range of Business Oriented Features can be configured to meet your needs.
