Mobile PBX brings business VoIP to iPhone and iPad


Call handling capabilities of a full professional PBX switchboard available on Apple’s mobile devices.

Mobile PBX on the iPhone from Cloud Net23 August 2010 - Business phone systems company Birchills Telecom, today announced the launch of its first mobile connectivity solution for the iPhone and iPad.  The Mobile PBX provides users of Apple’s iDevices with a full set of easy to use VoIP-for-business features, including a full hosted virtual PBX (switchboard), at clear, predictable and competitive rates.

New users of the service will be able to keep business and personal calls separate with free incoming calls to a separate geographic (01, 02 or 03) number on the same mobile device while taking advantage of low outgoing call charges (including international calling).

Existing users will benefit from the business phone features they’re familiar with, such as follow-me and hunt groups, while they are on the move. Moreover, because calls are handled over the iDevice’s data connection (either Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G) there are no additional costs for incoming calls and outgoing calls are at competitive VoIP call rates.

 After downloading a preconfigured application from iTunes, and entering a user name and password, the user is instantly connected to Cloud Net’s phone system over Wi-Fi or 3/4G. 

Mobile PBX users will be charged £10 per month for access to its VoIP switchboard and free calls between other Birchills users. All calls made from the iDevices by existing Cloud Net users will appear on their normal monthly bill.

All users pay for calls made outside the Birchills network.

David Hill of Birchills Telecom, said, “Every business has different needs and new service together with our other new offerings: Virtual Number and CLASS answering service allows our customers tailor their business phone service to their needs. 

We’re very excited about our mobile connectivity solution. Its great value and ease of installation is what customers have come to expect of our products and services. We believe it will boost productivity for those businesses and individual users constantly on the move.”

“We have found that mobile contracts are not designed for calling between the office and mobiles. Forwarding desk phone calls to your mobile also adds to office phone bills. Our service will mean that your iPhone and iPad will effectively become a convenient extension of your office.  We would not be surprised if more and more users with iPhones start ditching their desk phones as a result!” added David Hill, Chairman of Birchills Telecom.
