Skyetel is proud to be a certified and preferred provider for 3CX. This makes configuring Skyetel for your 3CX PBX very easy - simply select us from the drop down list and boom... you're done!
However, we know that many of our customers prefer to use IP Authentication instead of SIP Registration. This guide walks you through how to do that.
Please note, this guide is intended for the advanced 3CX administrator that is very familiar with configuring and troubleshooting their PBX and network.
ProTip: Per 3CX specifications, All DIDs must conform to E.164 SIP Format. For example +13609865200
