As mentioned earlier, Ethernet over copper now offers these businesses the potential to cut their telecom costs by as much as 50% each month or more, with free installation and no upfront cost. Another significant development regarding EoC is that it now facilitates hosted PBX. With integrated hosted PBX, businesses no longer need to purchase and maintain expensive PBXs, to obtain all of the features traditionally provided by an on premise PBX.
With hosted PBX, all features, such as call waiting, call forwarding, caller ID, voicemail and about 20 more features, too numerous to list, are all offered online and configured through a user friendly online portal.
With Ethernet hosted PBX, businesses no longer must place their calls over the public internet to enjoy the numerous features traditionally offered with hosted service. Now, calls are carried over the private network of the telecom provider, and never touch the internet.
Because the voice packets for these calls are maintained on the private network of the Telecom provider, CoS, Class of Service, packet prioritization is ensured. This results in excellent call quality.
Hosted PBX service also provides unlimited free long distance and toll free services for businesses.
Most businesses currently using t1, bonded T1, and fractional DS3 to meet their internet, telephone, or networking needs can now save up to 50% on their total telecom bill by switching over to Ethernet over Copper. This change is free, with no installation charge.
