3CX SBC vs…..Mine

3CX SBC v16

3CX SBC works great for small and medium sized businesses. The biggest issue I have seen is that it is deployed on Windows which is susceptible to Windows updates and just generally Windows desktop should not be used as a server. Let’s be honest the Rasberry Pi is a cool little box and we have run Citrix zero clients on it as a dummy terminal, but do you really want your phone system to depend on ...

3CX Hosting

Posted by:

So when I first started working with 3CX back in version 12 I believe we had a single “Multi-Tenant” version of 3CX on a Windows Server 2008R2 box. Had to open up separate ports for every client it worked but management was tough! I am a Data Center Architect by trade and it was rough so I can’t imagine what a layman user did!

We have since graduated those days, 3CX is now hosted in our Data Center in Dallas Texas ...

Posted by:

Last week some of our customers were affected by GoDaddy revoking SSL certificates, which in turn brought down a lot of secure sites and services like ADFS. If you are using a GoDaddy SSL certificate I would run, not walk to another public SSL certificate provider.

Here is the statement from GoDaddy;

Due to a software bug, the recently issued certificate for your domain was issued without proper domain validation, and in accordance with industry standards as a Certificate Authority, we will ...

Engineering IP PBX with 3CX

Posted by:

3CX Hosted PBX done right

In my last post I discussed that 3CX is Cloud Ready on Azure. That is a somewhat bold statement considering what it takes to actually architect a correct solution in the real world. There is a lot to consider when designing an IP PBX that is functional and operational, one that you would be proud of. When I say proud, the primary criteria would be that the end users or consumers of the voice service ...

3CX V15 is gaining ground on Azure

Good morning! Well since I last blogged about 3CX on Azure a lot has changed in the world of 3CX. Namely, 3CX V15 was released in the last quarter of 2016 for GA. As a 3CX partner we had access to the beta release and we were able to test it again on Azure. 3CX V15 works great on Azure, there is no multi-tenant version moving forward from V14, so the port ...

E-rate began to phase out funding for voice service in the last year, shifting its contributions to support advanced communications systems instead.

 

The school district wanted to preserve the considerable funding it received from ...

Setting up a Cisco 7942 as a custom template for the 3CX PBX

Good morning from Minnesota! No, I live in Texas but I am in Minnesota working, anyway on to my post.
