Posted on August 26th, 2020 by Ellen Wilkinson, Partner Communications Manager

LONDON, UK & JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA 29th JUNE 2020- 3CX, developer of next-generation Communications Solution, today announces their partnership with South Africa’s leading provider of IP PBX appliances, Far South Networks Ltd. The agreement will see Far South Networks as an official 3CX distributor of PBX Appliances across Africa. 

As a leader in the IP PBX and SIP Gateway market, Far South Networks provides businesses with a flexible and powerful platform for managing voice and data service delivery with unparalleled quality and security. The new partnership with 3CX will expand the company’s communications portfolio, replacing their existing software PBX with a world-class 3CX offering, to be sold as an integrated software/ hardware appliance solution. Resellers in South Africa will now have access to a high performing, stable 3CX appliance that can be deployed without concern for connectivity or infrastructure constraints. Far South Networks is widely known for its comprehensive support and training programs, which will now be extended to include practical, hands-on training for all 3CX resellers on the integrated appliance solution.

Greg Garrett, Channel Manager Africa, 3CX said:

“Far South Networks is leading the way when it comes to providing secure, reliable PBX appliances to the South African market, which has traditionally been difficult to break into due to infrastructure challenges. This partnership is really exciting for 3CX and our resellers, as the new PBX appliances provide them with an affordable, trusted communications solution that combines the benefits of our software PBX with the performance of Far South’s Wanderbox and Com.X appliances.”

Grant Broomhall, Managing Director of Far South Networks said: 

“Far South Networks is delighted to announce that it has entered into an agreement with 3CX allowing Far South Networks to incorporate the 3CX PBX software natively within its Wanderbox and Com.X PBX product lines. Under an exclusive distribution agreement, the world-class 3CX PBX functionality will be natively supported on Far South Networks hardware telephony platform for both IP and telco environments. As a partnership of products, this brings two leading products into a single package, delivering an enhanced suite of features and services to the business user as well as opening up new vertical markets to Far South Networks’ channel partners, via the newly available 3CX software service packages.”
