On Premise Telephone Systems

Thanks for taking your time to read our information about "on-premise" telephone systems. These are also referred to as traditional phone systems. In essence it means that the actual phone system is physically located in the customer's premises.

Typically this will be located in a specific communications room alongside the IT equipment such as a server. Others may have this installed in a cupboard or a small room. 

The phone system is powered by the business and is usually maintained by the IT department or by using a maintenance contract from a Telecoms supplier such as Fenix Solutions.

These systems were or are still manufactured by companies such as Cisco, Avaya, Nortel, BT, Toshiba, Panasonic and many smaller brands.

In today's market many businesses are making the move to a Hosted or Cloud PBX system. However, not all businesses want to make that move and prefer an on-premise phone system.

All of our on-premise phone systems are classed as hybrid phone systems. That is because they are flexible and will work with Analogue lines (PSTN), ISDN lines (ISDN2 and ISDN 30) and also with SIP Trunks and channels.

Why Pick Fenix Solutions for Your On-Premise Telephone System?

Many telephone companies are now promoting and selling phone systems. However, almost all of them only offer a Hosted Cloud phone system. Very few can offer an on-premise system.

On Premise vs Hosted Cloud Based Phone Systems

When it comes to picking a telephone system for your business, there are three real choices that can be made. These are:

  1. Cloud Hosted phone system
  2. On Premise phone system
  3. Hybrid phone system

Cloud Hosted Phone System

Most businesses are now deciding to go to the Cloud for many of their services. Their phone systems and communications are no different, and it is now the most popular choice for a phone system.

The disadvantage of any Hosted solution is that the security of the system is dealt with by a third party. The quality of the system is also very dependent on the quality of the Broadband.

On Premise Phone System

Some businesses prefer to have the phone system on their premises. These systems have all the benefits of any other system, but the business is also responsible for the security of the system.

Hybrid Phone System

A hybrid system is an option worth considering. This is essentially an on-premise phone system but the same handsets and hardware can also be used, if the business decides it then wants to move the system to the cloud.

Financing Your Telephone System

There are a number of ways to finance your telephone system. These are:

  • Outright sale - this is simply where you buy the phone system and then pay for the installation of that system
  • Financial Leasing - This is where we can arrange with a Finance leasing company to lease the equipment over a period of time (usually 3 or 5 years) This makes paying for larger systems a better way to suit your cash flow
  • Telephone System Rental - If the business prefers we can also rent phone systems. The price will be based on either a 2, 3, 4 or 5 year committed term

If you have any enquiries about an on-premise phone system, then simply give us a call on the number above, and we will be happy to help.
