3CX Phone System
From VoIP.ms Wiki
3CX Phone System for Windows Version 9.
3CX Phone System is a software-based IP PBX that replaces a traditional PBX and delivers employees the ability to make, receive and transfer calls. The IP PBX supports all traditional PBX features. An IP PBX is also referred to as a VOIP Phone System, IP PABX or SIP server.
Calls are sent as data packets over the computer data network instead of via the traditional phone network. Phones share the network with computers and separate phone wiring can therefore be eliminated. With the use of a VOIP gateway, you can connect existing phone lines to the IP PBX and make and receive phone calls via a regular PSTN line. The 3CX phone system uses standard SIP software or hardware phones, and provides internal call switching, as well as outbound or inbound calling via the standard phone network or via a VOIP service.
In the 3CX Phone System Portal, in the middle of the top, we can see the Add Voip Provider Wizard , we do click on there. Once we are there we can put the Name of the Provider, in this case we gonna put Voip.ms and in the Provider list we can select Generic Voip Provider.
