In residential telephony, an extension telephone is an additional telephone wired to the same telephone line as another. The first telephone on a line was a “Main Station” and subsequent ones “Extensions”. In business telephony, a business would have a hardware switchboard installed in their building to allow multiple incoming lines and lots of separate phone lines.
With modern age of Hosted IP Telephony, now users can have all this and more on a hosted virtual switchboard!
