Major new release of Windows based IP PBX Windows includes: new and improved interface, Sangoma support, performance and usability enhancements.

December 1, 2008 – announces the much-anticipated 7.0 release of 3CX, that improves performance and usability for existing users and allows seamless installations for new users.

“Version 7 is a major step forward in the evolution of 3CX and is a great example of how a software based PBX like 3CX can seamlessly add new features and improve with regular development and upgrades, as opposed to cumbersome hardware PBX’s where updates and maintenance can be disruptive and require high level technical assistance,” said Mike Deerfield, CEO of – North American Distributors of 3CX. “The advanced call queue options and call forwarding rules are highly sought after features that will satisfy thousands of customers, while the revamped interface and intuitive configuration wizard ensure that 3CX is easy to setup and administer. And support for Sangoma gateway cards provides customers with a reliable, low cost VoIP Gateway option that will significantly reduce overall implementation costs and streamline operations.”

  • Revamped interface, with many usability improvements.
  • Ability to set advanced forwarding rules per extension based on caller ID, time received and whether it’s an internal or an external call.
  • Apache was replaced by a Microsoft Web Server, Cassini, which is more Windows friendly, or optionally IIS can be used.
  • Added support for running 3CX as a virtual instance in Hyper V.
  • New configuration wizard that vastly simplifies new installations.
  • Improved system performance.
  • Ability to offer callers a way to exit out of the queue and leave a message instead of waiting.
  • Ability to have callers go straight to voice mail if no one is manning the queue.
