Configuring the Trunk with 3CX

The general instructions outlining how to add a new SIP Trunk to your 3CX installation can be found here.

Adding the Trunk

Go to “SIP Trunks” and select “Add SIP Trunk”

  • Select Country: DE
  • Select Provider in your Country: Vodafone (Register)
  • Main trunk number: This will have been provided to you by Vodafone Deutschland.  You must enter the number in national number format (e.g.03012345678)
  • Press OK

Under the “General” tab in the “Authentication” section, enter  your Authentication ID and Password (these will be supplied to you by Vodafone Deutschland)

Once you have filled in these fields as given to you by Vodafone Deutschland, scroll to the top of the page and press OK. At this point if you refresh the page you should see your Vodafone Deutschland Trunk appear as Registered.

Adding Additional DIDs

To associate all other DIDs/Numbers you have in your Vodafone Deutschland account with 3CX, go to the Management Console → SIP Trunks, double-click on your Vodafone Deutschland Trunk and go to the “DIDs” tab.

Here you should already see 1 entry; that is the Main Trunk number you have set. Add all other DIDs/Numbers you have to the list in a National number format (e.g. 03012345679) and press OK.

Creating Inbound Rules

Now that you have associated all your DIDs/Numbers with your SIP Trunk in 3CX, you can create Inbound Rules to set where calls will be routed when those numbers are called. Instructions on how to create Inbound Rules can be found here.

Number Format

General

When configuring Vodafone Deutschland SIP Trunks in 3CX, all numbers should be entered in National number format (e.g. 03012345678), otherwise call routing will fail.

Outbound Caller ID

Vodafone Deutschland Trunks support Clip No Screening which means you can present any number as Outbound Caller ID.

Outbound Rules

When configuring your Outbound Rules make sure that all numbers are dialed either in the National (e.g. 03012345678) or  International (e.g. 004912345678) format. More information about how to create Outbound Rules and how they work can be found here.
