Cloud telephony, also known as cloud calling, is a type of unified communications as a service (UCaaS) or (SaaS) software as a service, that offers voice communication services through a third-party host. UCaaS replaces the need for conventional enterprise telephone systems, such as private branch exchange (PBX). The most important function of any business is to make sales and deliver value to its customers and make long-term relationships with the customers, the cloud telephony technology is playing a vital role in that. Cloud telephony services enable users to place calls directly from any computer or mobile device with an internet connection and free businesses from the burden of buying and storing stand-alone hardware, like PBX boxes and handsets.
