Understanding Elastix 5 Editions
Licences, regardless of their edition, vary depending on the number of simultaneous calls (internal and external) that your company needs. All licences support an unlimited number of extensions.
There are 4 types of editions, Free, Standard, Pro and Enterprise. The difference between free and standard edition is basically found in the number of supported SIP trunks and increase in general features such as the use of the g729 codec.
Pro Edition also enables the possibility of integration with CRM, Contact Center features, Failover, Bridges with remote offices and more. Enterprise edition carries all the great features of unified communications and management like the PRO, with an additional standby licence for use with a secondary (standby) machine. Providing redundancy scenarios along with built-in Failover included since PRO edition. Here you can see Edition Comparison page.
