A telephone extension is an internal telephone line attached to a PBX or Centrex system. The PBX operates much as a community switchboard does for a geographic telephone numbering plan and allows multiple lines inside the office to connect without each phone requiring a separate outside line. In these systems, a dialer usually has to dial a number (typically 9) to tell the PBX to connect with a landline (also called DDCO) to dial an external number.
