Telesphere provides small and medium businesses with the extensive service and features generally available only to larger corporations—all without the cost, hassle, and limitations of traditional systems. Rather than a business needing to buy an expensive PBX for their office and then pay a technician to maintain it, technology has enabled providers like Telesphere to “centralize” all of the functionality of the traditional PBX into a central “softswitch” for the whole country.
By connecting your office with a private and dedicated pure IP T1, Telesphere is able to provide all of your telephone and internet service through a “hosted” solution.
