Evaluating your 3CX softphone and installation

3CX comes with an excellent softphone that is considered by many of my colleagues, including myself, as the best in the industry. A softphone by the way is simply a 'software telephone', that can exist on your PC or MAC, and also on your phone, be it an android, iOS apple device or even a windows based phone.

This bonus lecture will explain what a SIP trunk is, and how it can be connected to your 3CX phone system. This will then allow for your 3CX phone system to make and receive calls with the public telephone network, so you can talk with the world!
