Multiple Ways to Connect to pbxHQ
Many of our customers ask, “Do I need new phones to use your PBX?” In short, the answer is no. If you own a smartphone like most, you can download an app and connect instantly.
To get the most out of your PBX experience, you will want to connect a SIP client. This includes physical VoIP phones and software phones, referred to as softphones. Of course, you can also forward calls to ordinary devices like landlines and mobile phones.
VoIP phones resemble traditional desk phones, only they run off Ethernet instead of landline cables. Most come with warranties and useful onboard features like transferring and holding.
Softphones are applications for your desktop or mobile devices. You can download most for free, though premium versions are sometimes worth the investment.
