What To Keep In Mind When Selecting A PABX System For Your Home, Office or Warehouse

When looking for a new PABX system, there are many factors to consider. Here are some tips to help you make the right choice:

Dedicated Inbound Lines

If you have a business and are looking for a dedicated inbound line, this is the type of phone system that will meet your needs. Dedicated inbound lines are used for incoming calls only, meaning they’re not used for outgoing calls. They’re usually cheaper than shared lines and tend to be more reliable since they don’t share bandwidth with other users (except perhaps during peak hours). On top of all that, they can have higher bandwidth than shared lines because they use dedicated circuits instead of sharing them with other users who may be calling at the same time or even within seconds of one another.

Number of Incoming and Outgoing Lines

The number of incoming and outgoing lines is important when selecting a pabx system. The more lines you have, the more features you can have in your system. For example, if you have just one line and it’s used exclusively for incoming calls, then there are no options for call transfer or voicemail notification messages. If the same number was used for both incoming and outgoing calls, then it would be possible for users to transfer their calls from one line to another at any time by dialing their extension numbers before speaking into their phones (or calling someone directly).

On top of that:

Expected Number of incoming and outgoing calls to be made at peak hour

The number of incoming and outgoing calls to be made at peak hour is a major consideration when choosing a paging system. The number of calls that can be handled by your existing phone lines will determine the maximum number of extensions and handsets you’ll need. If there are many more calls during your peak hours than expected, you may want to investigate whether it’s possible to increase the bandwidth on existing links or add new ones by upgrading equipment at either end (or both).

Exchange Capacity

The exchange capacity of a PBX system will determine how many extensions and incoming lines you can add to your network. For example, if you want to connect two conference rooms in your office with different extensions, then it’s important that both rooms have adequate bandwidth for the maximum number of users (in this case 8).

If the total number of incoming calls is more than what the PBX system can handle without getting bogged down with delays or dropped calls, then additional trunk lines might be needed. Trunk lines are used by service providers who need more capacity for their customers’ needs but don’t want them directly connected into their own networks because they may not meet all regulatory requirements for phone numbers assigned per line/extension type within an organization’s private branch exchange (PBX).

Number of extensions

The number of extensions you need will depend on the size of your office, its number of employees, and the number of departments. For example, if you have just one employee working in your office and he or she works from home most days, then there’s no need for an extra extension—but if you have two or three people working at once and they all need a place to call home at night (or during lunch), then an extra extension could be beneficial.

Internet Protocol (IP) PABX or Analog PABX

An IP PABX is much more cost-effective than an analog system and can be used in any location where you have access to a computer network. This includes offices, warehouses, factories and even homes. You also have the added benefit of being able to control your phone system from anywhere at any time with an internet connection.

An IP PABX allows you to manage all aspects of call handling from anywhere in the world via your own desktop computer or laptop. You can set up individual extensions for each employee so that they can receive calls directly without going through a supervisor first – this makes it easier for everyone who has access to talk at once (which increases productivity).

An IP PBX offers greater security than its predecessor due its high level encryption technology which protects sensitive information against hackers trying break into your network through weak passwords or other methods.”

Answering Machine

Answering machines are a helpful tool for people who are out of the office for a long period of time. They can make sure that calls to your company are not forgotten, even when you are not available to answer them personally. Answering machines also allow employees to receive messages from clients or customers.

Voicemail Services

Voicemail services are used to store incoming messages and allow you to retrieve them at a later time. Voicemail services can be set up to automatically forward calls to a designated extension, allowing you to leave work or personal obligations without answering the phone if needed.

Voicemail services can also be accessed from any phone in the office, allowing employees access even if they are offsite but still need assistance with their jobs.

Call Conferencing Feature

A call conferencing feature is a great way to make sure that your employees are able to communicate with each other, whether they’re in different locations or working on projects together. This is especially helpful if you have multiple departments and want to coordinate work between them.

Call conferencing allows you to connect multiple people on the same line so that everyone can hear each other clearly. It also allows for group calls—where all participants hear each other at once—so that no one gets cut off when talking loudly or typing fast! In addition, conference calls allow users who don’t share a phone line with one another (such as those who use smartphones) access via web chat instead of using phones altogether; this makes things easier because most people don’t carry around two devices when they need both voice-only communication abilities simultaneously (like when trying

When selecting a PABX system, consider the number and type of calls that will be made along with the number of extensions the system will have.

When selecting a PABX system, consider the number and type of calls that will be made along with the number of extensions the system will have. For example, if you have only one line in your home or office where all calls are answered by your landline phone then this is not an issue. However if you have multiple lines throughout your property and need to connect them together so they can share one phone line (or sometimes more), this would require additional hardware such as splitter boards or extension cords.

When considering how many extensions each paging device should support, it’s important to keep in mind which types of devices will be used most often: mobile phones vs. desk phones vs CTI terminals? How many different locations within these buildings need access from outside? What kinds of features do these systems provide?
