3CX Software is an open-standard, software-based, unified communications phone system that works with a variety of IP phones and SIP trunks and can be deployed on-premise or in the cloud. With transparent pricing and affordable maintenance, the 3CX is one of the most competitive systems on the market. Every user receives video & web conferencing, smartphone apps, chat with presence, and so much more without per-user fees and add-on cost headaches common with traditional & hosted telephone systems.
3CX Software Pricing
3CX Software Pricing Overview – PRO & Enterprise Licenses
3CX is priced as an annual license/subscription fee based on the number of Simultaneous Calls (SC) required.
‘Simultaneous Calls’ are defined as any internal or external call occurring at the same time.
As an industry average, 3 users require 1 call path. In other words, a company with 50 users would need at least a 16 SC (Simultaneous Calls) license.
Licenses can be upgraded to the next highest SC package (ex- 8 SC to 16 SC) by simply paying the difference for the remaining period. Licenses cannot be downgraded (ex- 16 SC to 8 SC) until annual renewal period.
Benefits of Annual License Subscriptions
3CX Licenses include one year of maintenance:
Smartphone app clients
Tested phone firmware updates
New versions (ex- v16 to v18)
Obtaining Your 3CX License
3CX software is delivered electronically and is activated by means of a license key. Pricing does not include taxes.
Host 3CX in the Cloud or On-Premise
Since 3CX is just software, it can be placed in a cloud-based environment, such as AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, or ACC Telecom cloud environment provided by HostWinds, or in your own virtual environment, VMWARE.
Customers may also choose to host the 3CX on an on-premise server that meets the required specifications. Lastly, the third option is to have 3CX host your license in their own hosted cloud environment (available for select license sizes and feature requirements).
