Back to the Glossary


Refers to where the hardware controlling your VoIP service is housed and who is responsible for managing and maintaining it. With an on-premises solution, you are responsible for the hardware and the service costs. Hardware is literally housed on your premises, in your office.

The hardware that supports cloud services is usually housed in datacenters and delivered via the cloud.
