SIP v/s PBXes?

Discussion in 'VOIP' started by Still Hunting, Oct 8, 2004.

  1. With the increasing popularity of SIP, will the PBX become extinct
    soon? Since every windows user has
    a SIP client on his desk, a PBX is no longer needed to provide
    telephone sets as desktop communication
    endpoints. Couldn't any SIP client on any PC connected the Internet be
    used to communicate with any phone
    in the world without the need to have a PBX in the office?
    What functionalities do PBXes provide that could not be replaced by
    SIP and its companion protocols?

    PBX'es (real ones) are about applications. Some of the applications can be
    done with SIP...
