The Windows alternative to the Free PBX

I just ran across this software tonight. It’s Free PBX software for windows 2000/NT/XP!

I have been using sip phones for awhile now and I have given a linux based PBX a shot, but I am married now with a 2 kids and I just don’t have the time learn all the “in’s and out’s” of linux and the associated software. Now I know that TrixBox is a great piece of software and that many people use it successfully, but for the linux impaired (like me) it just got frustrating.

Enter, 3CX. This is FREE PBX software that runs on windows.

This is straight from the 3CX website:

3CX Phone System for Windows is a software-based IP PBX that replaces a traditional proprietary hardware PBX / PABX. 3CX’s IP PBX has been developed specifically for Microsoft Windows and is based on the SIP standard – making it easier to manage and allowing you to use any SIP phone (software or hardware). A software-based IP PBX / PABX offers numerous benefits:

The 3CX software is free to download with no limitations.

I have used this software and it is very easy to configure and get running.

    For business owners I would suggest using a reliable company like Interactive Intelligence instead. So no one has to figure out the ins and outs of a linux program. Unless you like headaches 🙂

    The 3CX System is a very good system but, note that the free edition is limited to 4 concurent calls and does not support G729 codec
