What are FXS and FXO ports

Posted on: October 11th, 2022 by xontel_admin

What are FXS and FXO ports? What are they used for?

What is an FXS port?

FXS stands for foreign exchange subscriber. An FXS port is an interface that connects station devices such as your phones or PBX to a VoIP adapter.

FXS is an RJ11 port that connects internally to an analog office phone or fax machine.  Think of the S as meaning a station or a cubicle. Any FXS port is going to connect to an analog DEVICE and the cable from the port to the device will never leave the building.

Now, on to the FXO ports…

What is an FXO port?

FXO stands for foreign exchange office. An FXO port is an interface that connects your Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) line to a VoIP adapter.

It designates a telephone signaling interface that receives POTS (plain old telephone service). Um… ok. Let’s put it this way, FXO is a port that will connect a device to an outside telephone line.  Think “O” for “Outside”. Picture an RJ11 wall jack that connects to a box in your basement which is connected to the line from your house to the nearest telephone pole on your street. Any RJ11 port on a device that is headed towards that wall jack is an FXO port. It connects your device to the “outside” world or your local area telephone “office”.

PBX system in Kuwait

Posted on: July 15th, 2020 by xontel_admin

A Private Branch Exchange (PBX) system is just one type of private telephone network that companies can use for their communications. A PBX can come in many shapes and sizes, so it’s perfectly fine if you feel overwhelmed by all the information you find about it.

PBX system
What is a PBX system?

A PBX phone system is a type of private business telephone network that can be used for internal and external phone communications. PBX systems allow voice calling plus additional features like call recording, interactive dialing menus, voicemail, call transfer, queuing, and more.

 

Depending on the type of PBX system, these connect users either through an analog phone line using plain old telephone service (POTS) or a digital phone line via the internet using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology.

Features of PBX systems:
  • Cost Savings: While older phone systems have fewer features, they tend to cost more both in maintenance and in monthly phone bills.
  • Easier to Maintain: Dedicated wiring and hardware requires specialized service. Because a modern phone system uses an internet connection, they can use existing LAN infrastructure. System maintenance is mostly over a computer interface. Users can add a second phone line, for example, in minutes.
    Connect Over the Internet: Besides easier maintenance, using an internet connection means businesses can access their phone system from anywhere. This makes it easier to bridge multiple offices.
  • Mobility and Remote Work: Even if users are not in any office, they can still use a web browser or cell phone to manage their communications. On a web or mobile app, users can call a colleague’s extension, answer incoming calls or call external numbers. They can also see caller ID, transfer calls and set up call forwarding. In addition, some office phone systems integrate video and business texting.
  • Easy Expansion: An IP phone system is also easier to expand. Adding a new extension can be as easy as setting up a user online, then plugging in a phone.
  • Call Center Features: Systems no longer rely on manual switchboards. But online switchboard options, auto attendants, call forwarding rules and advanced queue strategies allow businesses to manage phone calls more efficiently. Modern systems allow supervisors to record calls, listen in to calls or take over for training and better customer service.
  • Modern Business Communications: Simple phone calls are still common. But many professionals and customers now prefer alternatives. These include video calls, web conferencing, instant messaging and social media. Business telephone systems have expanded to include tools for all channels.
  • Integration with Other Software: Business software is moving towards cloud computing. An IP PBX can integrate with CRMs, for example. This would allow businesses to sync contacts and manage information in a single location.
  • Low Pricing: XonTel offers flat rate annual pricing. When compared to monthly plans that charge per user, this can save businesses up to 80% on monthly phone costs.
  • Flexible Licensing: Pricing is also based on simultaneous calls. If a business has 50 users, most phone system providers charge for all 50 lines. Even if they use only 10 lines at a time.
  • Complete communication system: XonTel offers video conferencing and live chat included in the cost. It also integrates with the most common CRMs, Facebook business messages and instant messaging.
  • Flexibility: With XonTel, businesses choose their own SIP trunk and VoIP phones. Since XonTel is an open platform, it integrates with most common service providers and hardware. This means savings on hardware, toll-free numbers, long-distance calling and more.
  • Mobility: XonTel offers full-featured apps for web browsers as well as iOS and Android devices.
  • Easy Scalability: As a business grows, XonTel’s software scales easily. Flexible licensing likewise makes it easy to increase, or reduce, phone service.

What is IVR (Interactive Voice Response)?

Posted on: June 4th, 2022 by xontel_admin

Interactive Voice Response (IVR) is an automated phone system technology that allows incoming callers to access information via a voice response system of pre recorded messages without having to speak to an agent, as well as to utilize menu options via touch tone keypad selection or speech recognition to have their call routed to specific departments or specialists.

IVR Interactive Voice Response

A well designed IVR software system can help increase customer satisfaction and improve contact center operations and KPIs. Particularly during times of high call volume, an effective interactive voice response system can help avoid hold time by helping customers find answers and perform simple tasks themselves. In cases where a customer needs or requests to speak with a person, ivr  Interactive Voice Response technology can help route calls quickly and seamlessly to the best call center agent to address their inquiry.

How Does IVR Work?

There are two primary components of IVRs that enable the computer to understand and process the caller’s requests. One is voice recognition technology, and the other is called Dual-Tone Multi-Frequency signaling (or DTMF).

DTMF signaling occurs between the phone and the computer when callers use the keypad on their phone to select menu options. This touch-tone technology allows intelligent call routing to take place without a human operator.

 

IVR platforms with voice recognition capabilities enable what’s called Directed Dialogue, which means callers can give verbal responses instead of using the keypad to navigate the menu. For example, an IVR menu might say, “For billing, press three or say ‘billing.’”

Benefits of IVR Systems

Below is a list of the advantages you get when adopting IVR capabilities in your call center workflows:

Reduced Call Numbers

IVR software is a technology that allows customers to save time and resolve their problems faster than before. The less time they spend on the call, the more people your company can serve. Before a customer called a regular infoline and reached a general reception line, IVR now replaces it by introducing call routing. The customer call is instantly answered and directed to the requested department. Even if there is no suitable option for the customer to choose from the IVR menu, the caller can select to talk to agents.

Better Customer Service:

No business can thrive without customers. Therefore, having a good customer experience is imperative. Several studies report that 48% of customers prefer using the phone to resolve their issues.

Interactive Voice Response systems also make clients feel like they’re better attended to. IVR systems ensure that any usual question a customer might have already has a quick response readily available. A good IVR flow provides informative and time-efficient responses, guiding customers through an intuitive menu right to the department that can best resolve their needs.

Ultimately, this means answering a call on the first ring, thereby reducing customer wait time and cutting call volume, and saving time for both the client and company. And because they’re talking to the person who can solve their problems, there’s a much better chance of fixing the problem on the first call.

Offering a Callback

During a high volume of incoming calls, IVR technology has a useful feature that offers callers a callback at a later time to avoid long waiting periods and to prevent worsening the customer service experience. The company agents will have less stress and will be able to fully assist the clients later. IVR software sends the callers’ phone number and possibly preferred date and hour for a callback to agents to dial at a less busy time.

Unlimited Customer Access:

While office hours, holidays, and breaks dictate and limit employee availability, IVR systems are always at the customer’s disposal. They can call your contact center and interact with your IVR systems at any time, even outside your business hours.

This means a customer can receive customer service whenever they need it. While the option of having a live representative is still essential for more complex support requests, an IVR system gives unlimited access to a basic level of customer service.

Create a Better Company Image

If you’re a smaller company, you may not necessarily have the call volume that requires IVR technology, but it can still be a beneficial tool to have. An IVR creates the idea that your company is huge, as one receptionist couldn’t possibly manage your call volume.

For bigger companies, these systems foster a professional image by maintaining consistency in customer service and call volume.

Reduce operational costs.

IVR systems will replace a receptionist or a customer service agent who answers calls and directs calls to agents. They are also very affordable, will increase efficiency and will reduce operational costs, so the ROI is huge.

Increased Productivity

Routing callers to the specific departments or staff members to address their specific needs means less time spent conferring with colleagues to find the right answer or transferring the caller until they get what they need. Time spent on hold or being routed from department to department is a major driver in customer dissatisfaction, and you want to avoid this as much as possible.

Call routing also enables contact center agents to prioritize the most urgent calls, increasing overall efficiency and first-call resolution rates.

With an IVR system, your company will be able to attend to a high volume of calls without long call wait times or stressed receptionists.

Error-Free

High call volumes tend to be a mental strain on call center agents, which can result in misrouted users in addition to long waiting times. This can severely impact your customer service experience. With the IVR system’s automated routing, you greatly reduce the risk of mistakes in directing a customer to where they need to go

When your clients have a good customer experience, all good things will follow for your business. XonTel offers you very powerfull call center system with modern IVR technology. You can tailor your XonTel call center IVR system to your specific needs, use multi-level menus for more in-depth customer choice, and even customize routing behavior and how calls are sent to various groups in your contact center
