With its easy to use management console, softphone clients, and advanced security measures, 3CX is one of the easiest to manage and most secure PBXs on the market.

Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Management API suite provides a set of Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) classes used to manage and support an Office Communications Server deployment, as well as any managed code and Microsoft SIP Processing Language applications installed on it. Office Communications Server offers a Standard Edition and an Enterprise Edition:

  • Standard Edition is designed for use in small or medium-sized organizations. Standard Edition is also recommended for organizations that do not require the performance, scalability, and high availability that Enterprise Edition provides.
  • Enterprise Edition is designed for large-scale deployments that are typical of large organizations. In an Enterprise Edition deployment, multiple Office Communications Server Enterprise Edition servers are deployed as a pool behind a load balancer. Servers in the pool share a central Microsoft SQL Server database that stores user data.
