Primus Telecommunications Canada Inc. today launched its new private data exchange system, Primus Hosted PBX, a business grade phone and Internet communication service that uses VoIP technology over a dedicated T1 line to the Primus network.

Voice traffic on the service is not mixed with any other traffic on the Internet and therefore is not exposed to viruses, congestion and delays.

Primus says it eliminates the cost of owning and maintaining a system for small-to-mid-sized-businesses by giving them the ability to customize and outsource their telephony needs.

All phone lines and long distance calls between offices are included in the cost of the service.

“A hosted PBX offers several advantages over traditional solutions, like Centrex and IP PBX,” said Kevin Restivo, an analyst with the SeaBoard Group in Toronto.

“The hosted approach allows growing businesses to build their communications capabilities as they add people — there’s no need to toss away their existing investment. Hosted PBX also provides 24/7 access to key support staff — a luxury that a mid-sized company could never justify on its own.”
