What’s New in 3CX Phone System 11?


Watch the 'What's New in 3CX Phone System 11' Video3CX Phone System version 11 is packed with features that extend user mobility and provides immediate cost savings to your telephony and PBX maintenance bills. It has been developed to work seamlessly with 3CXPhone for Android and iPhone – free softphones and full desktop phone replacements, which allow users to make phone calls via WiFi and 3G.

Users can now take 3CX MyPhone with them wherever they go as they can sign in to their PBX when in or out of the office from any computer. This allows users to see the presence and status of others, join queues, and take advantage of Unified Communications, such as instant messaging, from anywhere with an internet connection. Users can also see the presence of colleagues on bridged PBXs with 3CX MyPhone.

For more information, see the 3CX Phone System 11 Press Release here.

    This video is very informative and an excellent tool that can be used by Partners to alert their customers of the new features found in 3CX PBX Version 11.

    I’m a bit surprised that myphone has been enabled (and reworked to fully support) WAN access without having been secured first. Everything is communicated in cleartext between the myphone client and server (which is a problem even in a LAN environment) which is not very secure.

    Myphone won’t even work over https.

    • @nochum – you can already myphone over https. Its something you must configure in IIS. If you are familiar with IIS you can simply do it yourself. We will schedule a blog post how to do it in IIS for those who dont know how to use IIS.

    The website lists Android, iphone and Windows versions, but as far as I can tell, its not really Windows phone 7, its Windows the desktop operating system.

    Need a 3CXPhone Windows phone 7 version, thanks!

    • @mike there are no plans for a windows phone version.

  6. @mike there are no plans for a windows phone version.

    That is a MAJOR failing… get on it pronto please Nick Galea and team. WM7 and WM8 are available for your teams to write in, in the very codebase they already know!

    Windows Mobile is now becoming very popular, especially in the USA.


    July 23, 2012 at 3:12 am
    • @Nick – We have no plans for a windows mobile version. Its not popular at all. Dont make statements as facts when you know little about the market.

    @nick – if I use myphone over https (my site is configured with https for the management portal as well as reports, etc.) the login never goes through it just repeatedly asks for login credentials and never authenticates. I’d be very interested to learn how to enable this so that I can make this change. I am familiar with IIS, but I don’t know what specific changes myphone needs to enable this feature.

    • @Nochum – thanks again for your feedback. We are checking this out and will make a blog post to configure this and an update to make it easier. We will do this asap….

    @Nick Galea – Windows Phone platform has Skype and Lync clients built-in. I think, WP will be accepted as corporate mobile UC client in organizations that has Windows infrastructure.
    Because 3CX is also marketed as Windows PBX, it wise to start working in this direction. By the way you can release “the first in the market free SIP phone for WP” :-)

    Igor, as long as 3CX no capability for SIP text messaging, it’s not a real UC platform. So it’s different from Skype or Lync; People who choose Skype/Lync anyway will not turn to 3CX for the feature difference.

    July 30, 2012 at 3:49 pm
    • @Elton Do you really think that Lync and Skype have SIP standard based text messaging?? Its proprietary and Lync and Skype aren’t even connected. 3CX has text messaging via MyPhone. In future we will plan XMPP messaging but its still far away. @Francisco – I dont think you appreciate the amount of work that goes into making a client.

      July 31, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    3CX MyPhone for Android and iPhone will add UC features, not 3CXPhone.

    July 30, 2012 at 6:19 pm
    • @ Francisco : We decide what to do based on what is popular when it comes to mobile phones. We are not trying to give you a lesson. You should be in a position to see this yourself. All you need to do is look around you when you are out in public places – coffee shops, tram stations, anywhere. Look at the phones of your colleagues at work. – See what the people have in their hand. They would have 1 of 2 options – Android phone (htc or samsung) or iPhone.
      Maybe by 2015 things will change. Until then, we have more important things to do. Also if you want a windows phone, there are only 2 main options you can go for nokia lumia or htc titan and both are a fail at the moment.

    • @Windows Phone Lovers. You will be happy to note that we will look into supporting Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 :)

    @Nick Galea,
    Great news to read that 3CX reconsider its position regarding Windows mobile OSes. As you are usually a visionary, Windows 8 might becomes a success in near months.
    I can understand that 3CX must first develop for most used devices (such as Iphone & Android), to spread easylly to numerous users.
    We don’t have to demonstrate here the successul stories of Apple and Google phones and tablets, howether, sometimes it can be confused for some customers to find a Windows designed IPBX, and a Microsoft certified Company (3CX) that don’t want to “waste” time on MS Phone.
    Hope your annoncement will be consider asap by your wonderful developer team to be beta ready by the end of october.
    Or why not to open compatibility with Lync to connect 3CX IPBX?
    Best regards

    • Hi Lionel, Thank you for your nice comments! :) For now we are just looking into as part of our re development of 3CXPhone. We have no time frame nor are we sure there will be one. It also depends on the market. Lync is a competitive PBX, we have no plans for integration.
