Third party PBX support

Third party PBX support

Voipfone's services don't just work within our infrastructure, we support open source Asterisk and several proprietary PBX installations and provide free SIP trunks to your servers.

If you already host your own phone system, or perhaps have specific features you wish to implement that are bespoke to your requirements, you can host your own PBX (Private branch exchange).

However, please be aware that if you don't know exactly what you are doing you could easily open yourself to attack from the many internet hackers now targeting naive PBX users.

If you do use one of these boxes, we strongly advise you to have it professionally installed and maintained; Voipfone is not responsible for your network being compromised by hackers and you could find yourself with a large telephone bill.

If you're not an Asterisk specialist installer/maintainer and do not use one, we recommend you use our Virtual PBX which is managed by us in our secure Data Centres.

There are many reasons a person person or business may want to host heir own phone system, but a few of them are:

Customization and control

There may be specific features you wish to impliment bespoke to your business alone that aren't currently provided by the Voipfone control panel.

You may also want more granular control over aspects of the system, such as logging and branding, etc.


Whilst we are forever expanding our list of integrated systems, there may be one you need that we don't fully support at this time.

Asset ownership

Many businesses prefer to keep things in-house, preventing things like being locked in to one vendor.
