Plug and Play Configuration of IP Phones & 3CXPhone
To configure an IP Phone, just plug in the phone into your network and 3CX will automatically detect it and allow you to push out a configuration to it, all with a few mouse clicks. 3CX includes advanced configuration templates for supported IP Phones that allow you to take advantage of all 3CXs features without requiring extensive knowledge of the IP Phone itself. 3CX can configure phones for use on the LAN or for REMOTE use and provision features such as BLF lamps and DND. You can find a list of supported IP Phones and how easy it is to configure them here.
Automatic Configuration of Supported VoIP Gateways & SIP Trunks
3CX automates configuration of VoIP Gateways & SIP trunks too. Inbuilt templates allow you to deploy gateways and leverage your existing phone lines without having to learn how to configure a VoIP Gateway. 3CX automates the configuration and regularly updates and tests the configuration templates so you dont have to. You can rely entirely on 3CX support to keep your gateway up to date. View a list of supported gateways. SIP trunks & VoIP providers are tested and templated within 3CX, saving you a great deal of time. Simply choose from the available SIP trunks and enter your account credentials!
Easy, Network Wide Management of IP Phones
Once IP Phones are provisioned and configured, you will need to manage them and keep them up to date, a matter overlooked by other phone systems. Not so with 3CX as you can view all IP Phones from within the 3CX Management Console and check firmware version. 3CX will test all new phone firmwares against 3CX and only release the firmware after it gets the 3CX seal of approval. Once a new firmware is released, you can deploy it to all your phones on your network in just a few mouse clicks. Please note that you need to have a valid maintenance agreement in place to keep receiving firmware updates.
Virtualize with Hyper V and VMware
The power of the 3CX PBX lies in the fact that it is entirely software based. Leverage your existing servers and take full advantage of their power and reliability, without having to add yet another difficult to manage appliance to your server room. And get easy backup and redundancy to boot with Hyper V or Vmware!
