There’s significant difference between traditional telephony services and virtual PBX. PBX is defined as premises-based equipment that has been created to switch and route telephone calls, while a virtual PBX refers to a system that lives in the cloud. 

To help customers understand the difference between online virtual phone number providers and traditional providers, 800-numbers.PBXCompare.Com, a website that compares toll-free PBX service providers, has launched a new PBX comparison site.

The new website will act as an information portal that compares key differences between virtual PBX providers and traditional phone service providers including major companies like Verizon and AT&T.

"Understanding the differences between online virtual phone number providers and traditional telecom companies can be difficult for consumers who have dealt with a company like AT&T their entire lives.'s homepage grid succinctly summarizes the differences in feature sets between online vendors and traditional providers," said Casey Jones, manager,, in a statement.

The website also allows users to compare and review several 800-Number virtual PBX services and choose the one that meets their requirements.

This important information is now available on the company’s website, providing anyone looking to improve their communications systems by leveraging a virtual PBX with the perfect solution to meet their individual needs.

“It's vitally important that users select the best PBX service for them, and part of making this important decision is understanding the differences between normal phone services and the new, more modern rivals that offer the virtual option,” Jones added.

Recently, virtual-pbx highlighted a market report from BMI-TechKnowledge that stated cloud solution models including PBXs are continuing to be used on a wider scale, with converged PBX solutions, aka CBX solutions, beginning to leave their mark.

 CBX solutions are beginning to claim the market, with unit shipment approaching digital shipments. Also, when looking at medium-sized companies with 32 to 128 ports, CBX was the only division to continue to see growth alongside a decrease of digital PBX sales, the report said.
