Title: 3CX IP-PBX
Post by: MikeJ on August 05, 2010, 04:08:53 PM
Does anyone have any hands on experience with this product? I would like to know if if it is a worthy competitor in the VOIP world.

Thanks
Mike

I took one out of a Career Center that was put in by the IT guru. They had problems with it all the time and I ended up putting in a new Samsung OS7200 for them. I don't know if he didn't know what he was doing or it didn't work, but they were not happy with the system.

We have taken out many 3COM NBX's and a couple of the newer 3COM systems of the last couple of years. We have had to support some of them while clients budgeted to replace them so from a service side they are not very good systems. I would look at other systems instead of 3Com.

@LaneComm, 3CX has nothing to do with 3Com's NBX. (see www.3cx.com)

I have been playing around with it (the 3CX) for lab environment for a home based phone system. It's a lot better than trying to decode the Asterisk system. I've been struggling to get a Cisco router +Callmanager to even function (those stubborn things) for a while now.

 I know there hasn't been a reply for almost a year, is the 3CX a good system and what is anyone's success with it?

Allow me to correct.  I have experience with both 3CX and 3com, both are junk. I also have experience with Cisco and its far superior to either of the above. As far as residential not my market but I cant imagine needing any of the above in a home.

I have to say, that was a pretty ignorant, and a condescending comment. Instead of shooting down, ask a follow up of what is the reasoning of a such a potential install? Its because I need an isolated phone system, that has intercom, paging and a dial out code. In fact many people have Cisco routers for their home from leftovers of their CCNA cert studies, that they use it for their home. But what do I know...

I think this is a reasonable statement, LaneComm states this is not his market and he can't imagine the need. He didn't shoot it down and say; "don't use it for home."

Please take this opportunity express your views on this without calling someone ignorant :066:

Thanks so much for your understaning. :003:

Now back to the topic! :047:

Actually it's perfect for a home system especially with the economy in the tank. There are so many home based startup businesses that this system would give them a larger presence appearance and not break the bank.

If your looking for low cost and high quality I would highly suggest the Cisco UC 320, UNDER $ 1000, does everything.

I've noticed there has been replies a month ago, I wasn't able to get back right away. I must had came a off a bit rough in a couple of those replies. However, I have been able to get the 3CX to work in the basic sense. I have been able to work a SIP Polycom to register better than the Cisco I had.

I got rid of a Cisco Router with CM  router on eBay and I am still trying to get the other phones off my hands. All I can say for someone with a micro enterprise that Cisco is extremely complicated and I won't be able to recoup the losses on such a complicated system. (and boy do I say that - I thought i knew what I was getting intp.)  If i have extra money, I may get a slightly older Avaya IPO because the skillset goes towards those types of systems for me. I may give Ci$co another chance...wait ten years to get a UC350 on a deep discount, it may just be another waste in the pocket for me.
