Exciting news for the Elastix community. We’re releasing a new version of Elastix powered by 3CX instead of Asterisk®*. 3CX is an open standards PBX and has built a strong following with frequent updates.
Elastix 5 will be bundled in a special free version of 3CX which includes 8 sim calls (approx. 25 extensions). Integrated into 3CX, free of charge are also smartphone and desktop clients as well as WebRTC-based video conferencing.
3CX has also committed to investing in the Elastix community with free certification, training and forum support. In addition, 3CX is planning on announcing a rewards program for active Elastix community members.
Edgar Landivar, CEO of Palosanto said:
“We were considering a telephony engine switch for some time now. The 3CX PBX is easy to use, open standards and feature rich. With the recent advent of its Linux version, as well as the free PBX edition, it is the perfect choice to power Elastix. The 3CX WebRTC Video conferencing engine is particularly impressive. I believe Elastix users are best served by this decision”
Nick Galea, CEO of 3CX said:
“We are honoured that 3CX will power Elastix 5. Elastix is an established PBX with a massive following – and being chosen to power the next version of Elastix is a great recognition of the quality of our PBX and the hard work delivered by our development team.”
