An acronym for Private Branch eXchange. PBX telephone systems support incoming calls from the outside PSTN, placing calls between users' phones (also known as extensions) and other phones or the outside PSTN, conferencing other users together, recording voicemails and a variety of other advanced telecommunication functions. PBX systems are broadly broken into several categories: traditional (also known as legacy); converged (also known as hybrid) or pure IP, aka IP-PBX.

A softphone is a software program for making telephone calls over the Internet using a general purpose computer, rather than using dedicated hardware. Often a softphone is designed to behave like a traditional telephone, sometimes appearing as an image of a phone with a display panel and buttons with which the user can interact. A softphone is usually used with a headset connected to the sound card of the PC.
