Leap into 2023 with Update 6 – now in Beta! Get your 3CX up and running easily and in no time with our new simplified setup and configuration – right from the Web Client!
We’ve added 7 new User ‘Roles’ to manage permissions, as well as new ‘Group’ functionalities – perfect if you have teams working across different locations and time zones. What’s more we’ve made it possible for you to use selected IP phones as SBC devices… As for StartUP users, you too can now make and receive calls using a 3CX supported deskphone!
Update 6 has come out of our test cycles with flying colors and has already been deployed thousands of times. Therefore we are releasing Update 6 as Beta and making it available as the default install option as follows:
Existing installations can install Update 6 via the updates page but keep in mind it’s still a Beta release.
New on-premise Windows installs will be deployed using Update 5 and cannot be updated to Update 6 yet.
We envisage making Update 6 final early next year. It will then be deployed to 3CX hosted and other installations on demand or automatically based on your setting and preference.
In Update 6 Alpha we had disabled DHCP 66 somewhat hastily and it is back now in the Beta release. The reason that DHCP 66 had been disabled was to increase security in cloud installations. We do not recommend using DHCP Option 66 in cloud deployments but it’s certainly possible to use it on the local LAN providing the network is properly secured.
We are working on a new secure way to deploy phones en masse in the cloud using the SBC and PnP. Meanwhile, you can deploy Supported IP Phones using DHCP Option 66. Check out our DHCP Option 66 guide.
