Setting Up A Cloud PBX – SIP Server

Setting Up A Cloud PBX – SIP Server

Hey everyone.

So last weekend I was playing around with my VOIP trunks and was thinking that its about time I pop them onto a PBX instead of the on the phones directly. I of coarse did not want to pay for this so decided to use my Physical Server in the Data Center and setup a FreePBX instance on that Hyper V Host. This was a quick exercise.

The next step was decided if I am placing it inside one of my firewalls or outside on my Public Switch. I opted for the public switch for now.

I have however setup a proper firewall on it. Then came stage 2. Let me try out 3CX. So I downloaded the Debian Version of 3CX and installed this on a new instance and now I have 2 Cloud based PBX’s to play with. I place one on my Fanvil Test phone with Autoprovisioning and the other phone onto my FreePBX instance and both are working great. No issues with speed or performance at this point. Below are the specs given to each instance.

  • 3CX Instance
  • 4Gb Ram
  • 2 Cores
  • 100Gb Storage
  • 100Mbps Bandwidth
  • FreePBX Instance
  • 4Gb Ram
  • 2 Cores
  • 100Gb Storage
  • 100Mbps Bandwidth

Both are on their own physical public IP address and both are working flawlessly. I will continue to load test and see at what point these instances start experiencing performance degradation and let you guys know in due coarse.

Cheers for Now.
