The Aarenet Virtual PBX functionality includes features such as conference calls, call-forking, group-calls, voice-mail, IVR and UCC integration. A fully integrated fixed-mobile convergence solution ensures the seamless operation and handover between Wi-Fi, GSM/mobile and fixed line voice networks. The "one number" concept enables a transparent call-distribution amongst mobile and fixed IP phones.
For corporate customers, the use of a Virtual PBX offers a wealth of advantages. The initial low investment and the fact that the system is cloud based and managed by the provider. The possibility to use the service for flexworkers or to integrate new branch offices very easy, the integrated location independent numbering plan for the company and free calls for all internal communication are the main, but not the only advantages offered by a Virtual PBX.
The Virtual PBX is administrated via the Admin Centre (for PBX administrators and end-users) from any PC or Smartphone. Zero-touch auto provisioning ensures an effective rollout of all phones to the end customer.
