Replace existing PBX?

Ok guys, this is probably the wrong place to post this but I would really appreciate any pointers you can throw at me.

We have an existing PBX/phone system in our office (a little before my time). It's about two years old and we're looking to switch vendors to save some money. The equipment is ours but I have no idea if it's compatible with other providers. If anyone has a clue or can point me to a good forum it would be greatly appreciated!

Current hardware:
1x: ELITE IPX II BASIC CONTROL UNIT / 8 slots with one 8-port digital station card include

1x: ESIE (8) -U20 8-port digital station expansion card / attaches to ESIB

1x: COIB(8)-U10 ETU, Central Office Line Interface w/Caller ID, 8 Circuits

1x: 4-port internal voice mail

15x: DTH-16D-1 Phones (NEC DTERM 80)
The system has a dedicated T-1 line which used to carry our regular network traffic. Based on this I'm assuming that there's some sort of VOIP connection to the current provider to handle our incoming/outgoing lines.

So, the real question is, can we change this to "talk" to a different provider?

Thanks much,
Jerret Kinsman
