Software Based PBX for Windows Based Systems

3CX Phone System is a free Voip PBX / SIP server software for Windows. This is an iteresting piece of software that may have some possibilites for using with a HSMM mesh system. I have not tried it yet but have been looking into it and so far have many thoughts about testing it on my small mesh network. It uses popular IP Phones such as Polycom, Snom, Cisco & others or Softphones. I like what i have seen with the documintation on their softphone and like the posibilites with it. It also runs on Microsoft Windows so no need to learn Linux if you did not want to. The software is a full edition is a fully functional product. To see which Windows systems are supported go here: http://www.3cx.com/blog/docs/supported-windows-versions This could be very usefull with HSMM, if anyone has tried it let me know what you think.

  1. Hi, my name is Alex Casanova (EA5HJX) from Spain. Here we are working in a similar project like HSMM called HSMMN (high speed multimedia network). For the backbone wifi we are using the infraestructure of guifi.net (http://valencia.guifi.net).

    A few days ago, we are planning a development of VoIP into HSMMN network, for this project we use Asterisk v1.8.2.2 and Kamailio for sip routing.

    Is very interesting all investigations about wireless and hamradio. Also we are implementing a system to work with Asterisk and Radio (http://www.bicubik.net/hsmmn) to use in repeaters and digirepeater.

    Best Regards

  3. If you just want two IP phones to be able to talk together without having Asterisk in the middle, look at Grandsteam's BudgetTone series. You can dial by IP address. Actaully just about any SIP phone can do this, just a matter of configuration. Grandstream is really easy. http://voipstuff.net.au/IPDialling.html

  4. Thanks for the information Steve. I went to the web site you suggested and find it interesting. I will look into this some more. There is a lot of knowledge in the Ham community.
