Before phone systems and cloud services evolved, many companies would pay large expenses to have a business PBX phone system installed. Why? Because a PBX phone system was the only way to get the phone features that sophisticated businesses needed, and frankly there were no other options but to pay the price. Additionally, these businesses were forced to buy expensive and bulky hardware, then pay for someone to install and maintain it. As technology evolved, so did PBX phone systems. Now, businesses can receive all the benefits from a PBX phone system without having to pay large upfront expenses to have the system installed and maintained.

With NEC UNIVERGE BLUE CONNECT, you get full-featured cloud phone systems combined that come with high-definition (HD) audio and other features such as call park, call forwarding, 3-way calling, and a conference bridge. All you need to do is buy the pre-configured phones, connect them to the internet and download the apps. No special setup or technician is required, and NO large installation expenses.


Private Branch Exchange (PBX) is a private system within a company that allows a business to manage multiple phone line extensions and calls within the company and outside of the company. Traditional PBX hardware technology, that makes call management possible, is generally stored physically on-premises within the company. Each phone extension connects by wire to the PBX terminal through a plug in the wall.

Spam Caller Protection is a free service for UNIVERGE BLUE CONNECT customers. It detects calls from aggressive telemarketers and fraudsters and allows administrators to decide how to route these calls.
