A digital, private branch eXchange (PBX) system connects the internal telephones of a private business. The job of a PBX is to maintain and establish a link between two users, disconnect the users and meter the call. These systems are meant for use in the workplace, not at the level of public phone companies or service providers. Every telephone in the business is wired to the PBX system; this is why an access code is required to dial outside numbers. With a digital PBX system a business can drastically reduce the number of telephone lines they must lease from a national service provider.
