These systems consist of the IP PBX server, VOIP business phone system Doha Qatar, and optionally, a VoIP Gateway. The IP PBX server is similar to a proxy server. SIP clients, (either soft phones or hardware-based phones), register with the server, and when they wish to make phone calls they ask the IP PBX to establish the connection.

The corporate network
This is the companyís local network, through which computers running SIP clients such as the softphones (check out 3CXís web client), and IP Phones connect directly to the PBX.
The company router/firewall
The companyís router or firewall connects to the internet and from there it can connect to remote extensions. Remote extensions include personal computers running the PBXís softphones, remote IP Phones, mobile devices running the 3CX Android and iOS apps, and other PBXís connected via a bridge. The router can also connect to the PSTN network if a VOIP provider is used.
A VoIP Gateway connects the PBX directly to the PSTN network so that you can continue to make and answer incoming calls from analog phone lines. This can be useful for businesses undergoing a phased migration to VoIP.
