IP Phone System snom ONE Making Headlines
By Stefanie Mosca, TMCnet Managing Editor
Since its release last month, snom’s newest IP phone system snom ONE, has been making headlines on a number of technology news forums. snom is already known for providing Voice-over-IP “VoIP” telephones based on open standard for enterprise communications, snom has taken its expertise and dedication to VoIP phones a step further to create a SIP based PBX telephone system with snom ONE.
Last month, snom ONE was featured in a Network World (News - Alert) article explaining that all versions of snom ONE are all software-based and work on Windows, Linux and MAC OS computers to provide both Session Initiation Protocol (News - Alert) “SIP” trunking or PSTN connectivity. The software is designed to be plug and play with snom's phones.
Commenting in a statement on why the company is expanding from making phones to also offer an IP PBX (News - Alert), Jonathan Greenwood, the snom ONE product manager said, "In the past we've experienced problems with customers missing out on some of the key features delivered by our phones, due to the installed IP-PBX systems. This is our response to the many compelling requests by resellers and users in recent years."
snom ONE is available in three versions; snom ONE free is a downloadable version for up to 10 extensions, snom ONE yellow offers an affordable solution for companies with up to 20 extensions and snom ONE blue offers up to 150 extensions and features that can support up to five different businesses off of the same IP PBX.
snom ONE increases the productivity of each user by supporting CSTA, which allows an easy integration into existing CRM systems. It also supports multiple languages and multiple time zones, which can be set up on system and user levels eliminating any barriers when used internationally.
