3CX on Linux to Power PBX in a Flash 5PBX in a Flash selects 3CX as core service for the next version of its PBX suite.

LONDON, UK, 19 OCTOBER 20163CX, developer of the next-generation software-based Unified Communications System announces that PBX in a Flash 5, has chosen 3CX to power the next version of its popular suite.

PBX in a Flash is a VoIP suite that allows users/companies to easily install and configure a complete PBX. The solution is used by tens of thousands of users and companies around the world and is supported on its forums by a large and loyal community.

The current version of PBX in a Flash is powered by Asterisk®* / FreePBX®, but version 5 will use the new Linux-based version of 3CX instead. Debian 8 is a state-of-the-art Linux distribution used in the very best server products.

Nick Galea, CEO 3CX said:
“We are extremely honored to power PBX in a Flash 5. It’s an established and respected PBX suite and winning its endorsement for our Linux version is a massive win for 3CX.”

Ward Mundy, one of the original developers of PBX in a Flash, said:
“We were at a crossroads for the next version of PBX in a Flash as to what core service to use given recent developments in the marketing of FreePBX®. 3CX for Linux provides a Unified Communications solution that is second to none and delivers ease of installation, zero admin and built-in security. Their uncomplicated licensing and free version are a near perfect fit for PBX in a Flash and our users. The PBX in a Flash Development Team unanimously chose 3CX as the best platform for the PIAF5 product release.”
