- Make Phone Number Arrangements – A temporary phone number is necessary for the porting process, but if you already have an existing number to port over, you must remain with your current provider until the number is ported to your new PBX provider. If you are getting a new number, it’s important to update others and let them know of the change through an email blast or similar means. While brief, all calls can be conveniently routed to cell phones during the transition period. Just remember, if you cancel your service with your previous carrier prior to porting your number, the number will no longer be yours to keep.
- Arrange Your Dial Plan – When switching over to a hosted PBX, organizing the routing of your calls is one of the first things that must be done. In order to do so, you’ll need to define various rules for your calls, including:
- The buttons used to activate voicemail and other features
- The hours of operation for your desk phones
- Setting up your directory
- The handling of faxes
- Sequential and simultaneous ringing
- How off-hour calls are handled
- Configure your emergency 911 settings

What is Hosted PBX?Unlike a traditional PBX, or Private Branch Exchange, which requires a large investment and ongoing maintenance and training, a hosted PBX is a cloud-based PBX system accessible via an IP network. Rather than being responsible for hardware, software, training, maintenance, and more, a hosted PBX provider takes care of it all. In addition to being completely managed off-site, resulting in no IT or installation costs, a hosted PBX system also provides businesses with the ability to manage their phone systems via a user-friendly control panel. For these reasons and more, hosted PBX systems are becoming increasingly popular solutions for today’s growing small to medium-sized business owners.
Features and Benefits of Hosted PBXIf you own a business with fewer than 300 lines, hosted PBX can provide you with a multitude of features and benefits. For starters, a hosted PBX system is much less expensive than a traditional on-site system. With hosted PBX, there is no need to buy expensive hardware and software, pay for installation, and manage the system. You simply pay a monthly fee and enjoy all of the benefits of the service.
While less costly than standard on-site PBX systems, hosted PBX solutions are teeming with valuable features, such as on-hold music, call waiting, call routing, transfers, and more. Moreover, as the popularity of hosted PBX continues to grow, additional features like auto attendants, extension dialing, and ACD queues are being introduced.
A hosted PBX can also be deployed immediately. In fact, most business owners are able to have their hosted PBX setup and running in under a day. Best of all, newer and more flexible hosted PBX applications are being deployed as well. Adding these applications and features can typically be done with a simple download or click of the mouse.
The ability to add new features as they roll out is just one example of the scalability of hosted PBX. Additional lines, phones, and even an entire new department can effortlessly be added, which would be much more complex with a traditional on-site PBX.
When you opt for a hosted PBX and outsource all the techie stuff, you will find your stress levels lowering as well. With a hosted PBX, a mountain of responsibility will be taken off your shoulders, allowing you to focus your attention on more important matters, like improving your bottom line.
Hosted PBX Tips and ConsiderationsHosted PBX systems are incredibly easy to setup and utilize, but there are a few things you need to do when opting for one of these modern business phone solutions, such as:
Review Your BillAs you can see, setting up a hosted PBX is remarkably easy. However, after doing so, you should review the bills for the first and second month to ensure you’re receiving and utilizing all of the services you’re paying for. Depending on which company you choose as your hosted PBX provider, the first month’s bill may or may not reflect activation fees, setup fees, and number porting fees. The second month’s bill should be a typical bill without added charges for the setup process. By this point, you'll be well on your way to enjoying one of the most streamlined and hassle-free business phone systems available for small and medium-sized business owners. ...

Some general suggestions:
Value Added servicesIf you have experience with VoIP or already in VoIP business, you can get benefit / new customers by introducing some value added services on VoIP. Few value added services are mentioned in following, Within each service there are many choices.
Sample business ideas:
Here is big Picture
Create your first VoIP application in 5 Minutes. Check out Quick Start Guide (http://www.didforsale.com/api-docs/voice-api-quickstart)
ANTRAX GSM Gateway (VoIP gateway) consists of up to 15 GSM Boards per one universal 3U sub-rack.
Each GSM board supports 2 channels, i.e. simultaneous calls.
GSM modules used in VoIP GSM gateway support all band of GSM frequencies, GPRS, IMEI change and enables a hot swap of boards in sub-rack.
- Module architecture allows flexible configuration and pricing
- Premium-level technology guarantees high-quality call routes
- Supplied with Sim Server and GUI software, allowing remote control
- We provide help with setup and business launch, plus our own VoIP traffic
The client can choose individual structure of gateway, equipping it with the required number of channels (2 to 30). This feature also means the flexibility in GSM gateway price setting. The modular architecture allows ANTRAX users to place SIM cards apart from GSM gateways and connect them via IP.
This feature provides a huge advantage in terms of safety and removes limitations which could be applied to the topology of your call termination system.It is important to mention that the module-based structure of our product is a part of anti-anti-fraud system, which allows you to reduce the load on every single base station, placing GSM gateways in different locations, without compromising the overall capacity of your GSM termination system.
Group association allows you to associate more than one SIM card to every individual GSM module in GSM modem. It increases the reliability of the system and ensures its smooth operation when one or more SIM cards fail for some reason. In case of fail, the system will automatically replace SIM cards from the SIM array, which was previously associated with this GSM module, saving system capacity that could be temporarily lost in different situation.
SIM box includes the following elements:
Sub-rack with fifteen universal slots which provides power and cool the system
SIM-board that comprises 20 SIM cards
Each client has opportunity to choose individual structure of SIM box and use from 300 SIM cards during GSM termination. It is possible to combine GSM and SIM boards in one rack, so it is gsm sim box.
Please add information to this page about VoIP Origination.
What is VoIP Call Origination?
One of the terms most often used when talking about VoIP communications is call origination, which basically has to do with how a telephone call starts and how it travels to the receiver once it does. The following will provide an in-depth look at what call origination is, how it works and what type of hardware is required.
What is Call Origination?VoIP stands for "Voice Over Internet Protocol". This means that phone calls utilize a technology that allows the calls to be sent directly over internet networks, which is a much cheaper way to make calls. Call origination refers to the point where the call starts, which takes place over the PSTN telephone network and transferred to their destination through the internet. It's important to note that a phone call through VoIP starts between the initiation point and the destination point, which are referred to as the originator and terminator respectively. There are typically different types of call origination depending on the services provided by the ITSP involved. The only way for call origination to work is if the VoIP originator has a call termination arrangement with a VoIP terminator.
Required HardwareThe best aspect of VoIP services is that there are hardly any noteworthy hardware requirements. All that is necessary is a gateway, which essentially transfers phone calls from the internet and onto PSTN lines. Since a gateway must interact with both the internet and standard PSTN lines, there are two interfaces necessary for a gateway, including a telephony interface that takes digital and analog lines and an Ethernet interface as a connection between the gateway and the internet. It's important to understand that a digital line can support a large amount of calls at one time, which can range anywhere from 20 to 30 depending on the type of line that is chosen. In comparison to a digital line, an analog line can only support one phone call at a time.
How Call Origination WorksCall origination is a fairly simple process that is a bit more complicated to explain. In essence, the gatekeeper mentioned previously will receive the calls and requests from the dialer. When a user makes a connection to the dialer, the gatekeeper will ask a Radius server to check if the user has input the correct password and username. The Radius server will then answer the gatekeeper with a yes or a no. If a yes answer is received from the Radius server, the user the has the ability to make a phone call from the origination point. Once the number has been placed, the gatekeeper once again receives a request for the phone call to be made. It is at this point where the gatekeeper will interact with the Radius server again to see if the user in question has enough money to make the phone call. The Radius server will then connect to the billing server to ascertain how much money has been provided by the user for this specific call, in order to nail down how long the call can last before being cut off.
The billing server will then take a look at the location at which the call is originating from in order to measure the current rate of pay, which all depends on whether the call is being made in off peak or peak hours. Once this has been determined, the relevant information will then be sent back to the Radius server. Once the Radius server has received this information, it will be sent back to the gatekeeper. The user is then provided with the IP address for the gateway at the destination to which the call is being placed. This gateway will send the call to the final destination. If no other issue arises during this time, the call can take place and the two users can talk for however long the duration of the call is. If the call takes place once the maximum time allotment has been reached for the call, it will be disconnected and more money will need to be provided in order to make another call and continue the conversation. When the call has come to a conclusion, whether by the callers themselves or because they were disconnected, the initial user will have the total price of the call deducted from their payment source by the billing server.
Types of VoIP servicesThere are two basic types of VoIP services, including PC to phone and phone to phone. The provider for the PC to phone service will place a dialer on the internet that the user of the service can download and install. This dialer allows for an account to be created with any type of payment source that is allowed by the service provider. Once this is done, the user can make and receive calls. ...
Business VoIP Providers - Compare and Choose a Business VoIP ProviderQuality business VoIP providers today offer a wide variety of feature packages, services and prices. Selecting the ideal provider and service options will depend on your type and size of business, features needed and projected volume of usage. Even when working with top-tier providers, your basic monthly service charges per line may begin at rates as low as $20. Before choosing your VoIP provider, it is essential to first determine your company's precise telecommunications needs to enable timely and cost-efficient initiation of your service. By consulting your chosen Voice over IP service team and seeking their expert advice in advance, you can be prepared to take the following steps to facilitate the smooth, productive startup of your services:
Important Information to Request from Any Potential VoIP ProviderBefore signing a service contract with any business VoIP provider, be sure to request basic service information and practices in writing. You need to be certain of such details as startup costs and monthly fees, any limitations and costs on portable phone numbers and exactly which features are included in the service package you select. You also need to know if international calling is included, charges for adding extra features and the extent of customer care and technical services provided. Also important are such issues as whether your provider offers a money back guarantee and if there are any cancellation fees. It is also helpful to determine prior to signing up for VoIP services if there are any hidden fees assessed by your chosen provider.
Take Full Control and Advantage of Your VoIP SystemOnce your new business VoIP system and service are in place, you and your staff members will have full-control capabilities for use of your business communications system. Your service provider will ensure connection with your online portal for customizing your telecomm options. These modern digital portals are user-friendly, enabling feature changes and additions to be made for immediate availability. You and your staff can make decisions and changes in real-time that work for you right in the moment.
You can manage your call settings remotely, directing calls to voicemail or having them transferred to another number or extension. You can also make exceptions to any chosen setting in your phone system. For example, if you are expecting an important business call and want to take that call, but hold all other calls for a few hours, you can set your phone to direct only the designated call to ring on your extension. This system allows and encourages you to take complete control of your telecommunications systems and settings so that the service works for your best interests and immediate needs at all times.
Major Business Benefits and Advantages of Installing VoIPWith an excellent quality VoIP system installed and running well in your company offices to provide remote access for you and your employees, you can work much more efficiently, achieving more in less time. You will enjoy the many benefits of knowing that you can leave the responsibility of your advanced office telecommunications system operations to your VoIP provider while you handle other important business matters. Other major benefits and advantages of your new business VoIP system enable you to accomplish the following:

Virtual PBX is a budget-friendly form of hosted VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) that usually only handles inbound calls. A virtual PBX is typically intended for small business VoIP customers with fewer than 10 employees and low-volume telephone traffic.
What Is Virtual PBX?A virtual PBX is an economy-class version of hosted PBX. Hosted and virtual PBX systems are business VoIP PBX phone systems that transmit calls over the Internet as data.
A virtual PBX offers inexpensive business VoIP telephone service to small businesses. As with a hosted PBX phone systems, a virtual PBX is owned and maintained off-site by a VoIP service provider. A virtual PBX enables a small business telephone system to access enterprise-level features such as auto attendants and voicemail. With virtual PBX small business telephone systems, small start-ups, mom-and-pop shops, freelancers, and entrepreneurs can all present a professional image to vendors, investors, and customers.
Depending on the service provider, a virtual PBX phone system may require a separate phone service for outbound calls.
Virtual PBX Features
Virtual PBX phone systems offer lower costs and fewer features than hosted PBX phone services. Compared to hosted PBX small business telephone systems, virtual PBX service is limited to the most basic fundamentals of business-oriented call controls. Virtual PBX is geared toward simple inbound call-routing for SoHo offices with few personnel, small budgets, and limited calling needs. As with many hosted PBX calling services, most virtual PBX phone systems do not require a contract or term commitment.
Standard features offered with most virtual PBX plans are:
Virtual PBX phone systems generally:
The features offered vary by virtual PBX VoIP provider. As VoIP service becomes a more common solution for small business telephone systems, many virtual PBX plan features are incorporating the more advanced features of hosted PBX phone systems. Compare plans and prices to determine the best virtual PBX solution.
CostVirtual PBX phone prices depend on a variety of factors, such as the features included. Virtual PBX phone service plans can start as low as $9.95 (Grasshopper) per month.
Virtual PBX Service Providers
Some virtual PBX providers include:
SynopsisThe practical implementation of VoIP was started on hardware based IP Phones. The idea was well received and was transferred into the concept of Soft Phones or software based IP Phones. These softwares always required some additional installation to the native Operating System. Most common examples of Softphones or Software based SIP client is Counterpath's X-Lite and Bria.
The Evolution of Software Development made it possible to translate or formulate equivalent of almost every desktop based application to web based application. This brought major shift in Software Industry as the web browsers are integral part of almost every Operating System. SIP clients, were also transformed into Web Extensions. Most of the time, Flash was used to develop such extensions however, it always required extra plugin installation, thus decreasing system performance, and increasing chance to troubleshoot as it required additional resources to be deployed. And this problem gave rise to the concept of WebRTC.
ArchitectureThe architecture of WebRTC, as described by W3C looks something like this:

How does small business VoIP work?Small business VoIP typically works with a hosted PBX model. This is to say that the PBX is hosted at the facilities of the small business VoIP provider. By hosting the PBX at the provider's location, the small business does not need to spend money, resources, and man-hours on expensive PBX hardware, software, and maintenance.
How does VoIP Actually Work?If you are looking for a hosted service, things are very simple. Most of the top business VoIP providers handle heavy lifting offsite. They will deliver calls to your phones and software clients without any hassles. This is applicable when you use phones that are plug_and_play certified. For business VoIP, it is not necessary to have additional on site hardware apart from these phones. May be all you need is to find a space for a small box of hardware at a place near on-site
Why VoIPIt all depends on the size of your company and the infrastructure you already have. Jumping on the VoIP bandwagon may cost to your company big time or it could help in entailing up-front costs.
What makes it attractive?For business VoIP, low cost is the biggest attraction. Business VoIP services are less expensive than traditional phone services.
Several of the hosted services require no new hardware investment at all. If you do need hardware, it is based on standardised technologies such as SIP, as opposed to proprietary products.
