    Hello

    We are trailing the 3CX Client and for some reason there is a large delay when making the outbound call, up to 10 - 15 seconds. I have tried the same number on a desk phone and it's delay is only a few seconds - connected to the same extension.

    Can someone please provide some insight?

    hello there,

    Could you please provide some more info regarding what Mac OS are you running and what version client are you running?
    Also are you on the latest service pack of V15 and have you downloaded the latest client from the updates section of the management console?
    How about extension to extension? is there any delay there?

    Hello

    I am running macOS Sierra. Client version is 15.1.0.66. As far as I am aware we are running the latest PBX software. I am unsure as to where to find the latest service pack of V15.

    Extension to extension calls are also delayed. I have also done the latest updates in the PBX also.

    You can find your build number on the Dashboard of the management console under the information column next to the license. 2016-12-30_15h05_48.png
    you are running the latest client though. Have you tried a windows client? Does that have the same delay as well?

    Hi Jacob
    When you say delay, it means
    1 - the call is established imediately but it has audio delay; or
    2 - the call starts dialing but it establishes after that delay?

    The day is, the number will be inputted, but there will be a delay before the call will dial and start ringing.

    We have the same issue with our Mac clients. It's a delay of ~16 seconds until the call is established. Same behavior for inbound and outbound calls.
    We use the Linux PBX, version 15.0.60903.0.

    The Windows client is working fine. Except calling a Mac client using the Windows client.

    Any news on this issue?

    Hi Jacob, Sergej
    Please you try open the 3CX client/Settings/Audio menu and there, instead of "default" devices, select the exact ones you want to use, then try to make a call to see if there's a change in that delay and tell me the result.
    Thanks

    I have done all of the audio settings and the results are the same.

    If you have a ticket open to our tech support, can you please send us the logs? I'm still assuming is something related with the sound devices (a bluetooth or USB) but only the logs might reveal.
    Thanks

    Changing the audio device makes no difference.
    I run some tests and recorded the network traffic on the device. On macOS it takes 5 seconds until the 3CX client contacts the 3CX server the first time after starting the call. On Windows it's less than one second until the 3CX client contacts the server.

    Internal calls:
    - macOS <-> macOS: It takes about 5-7 seconds until the call is established
    - macOS <-> Windows: It takes about 5-7 seconds until the call is established
    - Windows <-> Windows: It takes about 1-2 seconds until the call is established

    External calls:
    - Windows <-> external: It takes about 5-7 seconds until the call is established
    - macOS <-> external: It takes about 12-15 seconds until the call is established

    We use macOS Sierra on our computers.

    Any further ideas? :).

    Thanks.

    I have this problem too! I am running Sierra and have the 3CX Client v15.1.0.66. I have only just installed 3CX today although I have used previous versions. I thought I was doing something wrong, until I tested the system using the 3cx iPhone app instead of the Mac and it worked instantly.

    I am using the built in Mic and Speakers which are set as the devices in settings. I don't have any bluetooth or USB audio devices at the moment.

    Asking again for when this new version will be available? The soft phone is almost unusable at this moment with this issue going on, as most people will hang up after 15 seconds of ringing. Thanks!
