3CX Cloud Server – Host 3CX Phone System for Your Customers
Host up to forty IP PBX’s on one server with 3CX Cloud Server
Cloud based PBX demand is growing. Outsourced PBX is attractive to smaller customers but comes with a price: Existing Cloud PBXs have a basic feature set and the companies providing them will take control of your customers and make you dependant on their Quality Control and support procedures. This potentially could be a recipe for disaster.
Enter 3CX Cloud Server. A product designed to host 3CX Phone System for your customers and retain full control of data and quality.
Rather than a scaled down basic PBX, you can offer customers a fully virtualized 3CX Phone System instance, together with the advanced feature set that 3CX is known for. Advanced PBX features, unified communications and broad client support – fully virtualized and controlled per customer.
Sell 3CX Phone System to your customers, not an unknown white label brand, and see your sales process shorten. Now customers can choose a cloud based PBX without having to compromise on PBX functionality and support.
The Platform – How it Works
3CX Cloud Server is a separate edition of 3CX Phone System that allows you to host up to 40 separate 3CX Phone System instances on one Windows Server machine. Each instance is entirely separate from the other and allows you to completely separate configurations and resources between customers.
Because it runs on Windows Server 2012 and uses 3CX Phone System, you can leverage your existing knowledge without having to learn a new operating system or software platform to offer hosted PBX.
Connect each instance to its own dedicated SIP trunk or Gateway port and keep call billing perfectly separated for each customer. As a reseller, maintain close customer contact for PBX services, but outsource telecom call costs and billing to your SIP trunk provider of choice. As a SIP trunk provider, keep enjoying economies of scale by keeping control of the SIP trunks, but outsource PBX support and service to your resellers – allowing you to scale easily.
Special 3CX Cloud Server Features
The feature set of the cloud edition of 3CX Phone System is identical to the onsite edition. 3CX Cloud Server differs from 3CX Phone System in that it is designed to allow you to easily deploy and manage these hosted instances of 3CX Phone System.
The central console allows you to quickly manage each 3CX Phone System instance / customer. Each node represents a customer and allows you to switch into the customer configuration without having to login in to that particular portal.
The cloud edition offers a backup and restore tool that is able to backup all instances on the machine and restore all instances on another machine if need be. Automate backup on a scheduled basis and restore all instances in minutes in case of hardware failure.
If you want to leverage your existing VMware or Hyper-V knowledge you can do so with 3CX Cloud Server. It has been verified and tested against the leading virtualization platforms and allows you to take full advantage of VMware and Hyper-V management and redundancy features.
Ability to quickly create a 3CX Phone System configuration using our wizard or from a web input form: Import users, configure trunks and push out to a new 3CX Phone System instance.
Allow customers to manage their own extensions, but not Trunk, Gateway and other system configurations. Two additional user levels: Department manager, who can manage the extensions of his/her group, and System manager, who can manage all extensions. The System administrator level allows the customer full access to the system and can be disabled to avoid any misconfiguration by the customer.
3CX Cloud Server can easily provision remote IP Phones and 3CXPhone instances via the extended SIP Proxy manager which acts as an agent for provisioning requests. With the SIP Proxy manager you can send phones readily configured for true plug and play at the customer site.
3CX Phone System features the unique SIP Proxy Manager, which allows all SIP traffic for the customer to tunnelled over a single port. Drastically simplify remote installs and eliminate firewall configuration issues. Furthermore, the intelligent 3CX Proxy Manager can detect calls being made between local extensions and avoid sending audio streams to the hosted PBX – saving valuable bandwidth and drastically improving audio quality.
