One school of thought strongly believes that on premises IP-PBX is on a decline-mode and is gradually fading away into oblivion. While one set of experts is of the opinion that the on-premise VoIP is on the way to oblivion (due to competition from the hosted VoIP), others do not agree with it.
They are of the opinion that future of VoIP is with cloud computing when it comes to long term. When it comes to offering services suitable for short term or midterm, on premises IP-PBX is and will always be the best option, with no competitor in the fore ground.
Hosted Sells More
If one goes by the recent reports, the use of hosted VoIP and its sales all over the world has increased substantially. If the experts are to be believed and banked upon, on premises IP-PBX is likely to get an uptick too, when the rest of the existing TDM systems will be replaced with highly advanced IP solutions. This is particularly true in the global mid-market, along with organizations that are
looking forward to adopt open standard-based platforms.
A lot of business will keep on continuing with the in-house platforms or hybrid systems. However, not all business will opt for the OpEx subscription route, with vendors offering both cloud based solutions and standalone solutions that serve on premises IP-PBX customers.
Advantage On Premises IP-PBX
When it comes to supporting on premises IP-PBX solutions, there is so much to tell about this mode of communication. OpEx-based subscription pricing is the most logical mode of pricing for the technologies that change at a brisk pace. At the same time there are certain firms that are not always willing to pay a sizeable amount of premium for the advantage of OpEx along with constant upgrade of the features. For a lot of enterprises, the total lower cost of on-premise VoIP really makes sense and as a result of this, they still tilt towards on premises IP-PBX, kicking up its popularity by a considerable extent.
Besides, in case of on premises IP-PBX system, the IP-PBX equipment as well as the phones are set up and connected to the LAN. This means the users are able to own, administer as well as maintain all the related software and equipment. This also indicates that the users always have a superior control over their investment. Besides, they will also have a much better control over updates as well as security. Also, with the on-site technology, users are quickly able to address issues and outrages.
Besides, with enhanced customization, applications, system specification, and the configuration details can be comprehensively customized, something that is quite difficult in case of pre-packaged hosted solutions.
On premises IP-PBX solution needs a one-time capital outlay, something that is very lucrative, even for the startup companies. An on-premise network solution should ideally need only a one-time capital outlay. Once that is done, the only recurring expenses that are needed are cost of maintenance and upgrades. Thus, with so many advantages, the on-premises VoIP is always going to stay here and its future looks extreme bright and prosperous.
