Old No Comments on BT launch One Phone – Cloud based system to replace office PBX 32


Today BT launched BT One Phone, a cloud based system that replaces the traditional office PBX. BT One phone is aimed at the SME/SMB sector.

BT One Phone combines a fixed line (Leased Line/EFM/ADSL) and the Mobile phone network. You therefore have a system with built in backup connectivity. In a nutshell an user can have either a desktop phone, a mobile phone or both. If a user takes a call that is being routed via the fixed line and he/she takes the call on the desktop phone the user can switch (seemlessly) to the mobile phone and leave the office or go walk about.

In office connectivity is via a Pico Cell and repeater functionality (if required for large campus sites). Desktop phones contain a SIM card and are charged via USB or power socket. Traditional PBX functionality, Pickup, Transfer etc are built in. Each device can have 3 numbers, internal extn, external DDI and mobile number all in one device. – See BT Business site for more details..
