Being a developer and manufacturer of VoIP telephones and related equipment based on the SIP open standard, snom technology AG (News - Alert), aims to make its products compatible with most unified communications platforms, such as Microsoft Lync 2010 and Broadsoft's BroadWorks. As such, it should come as no surprise that the snom m9 cordless DECT phone has just completed interoperability testing with the latter platform.
As such, the snom m9 is not available to BroadSoft's (News - Alert) entire customer base of telecommunications service providers worldwide.
"snom is committed to interoperability with a broad array of SIP-based platforms and is pleased to have completed the recent testing with BroadWorks," said Michael Knieling (News - Alert), chief operating officer of snom technology AG, in a statement. "BroadSoft is at the forefront of the IP telephony industry and offers a mature, reliable platform, so we are extremely pleased to make our snom m9 cordless DECT (News - Alert) phone widely available to BroadSoft customers around the globe."
The snom m9 boasts highly interoperable IP communications firmware in an advanced DECT handset, resulting in an affordable cordless VoIP phone. It also offers interference-free communication through a dedicated DECT frequency band, 100+ hours of standby battery time, wideband audio, superior speech quality, and support for up to nine handsets and four simultaneous calls per base station.
Of course, the snom m9 also sports basic features such as hands-free mode, calling line identification, as well as mobile features like an onboard address book, calendar, calculator and alarm. It is also completely ready for the future in Internet with IPv6 support.
Over the coming months, snom plans to have more products complete interoperability testing with BroadSoft's BroadWorks.
In related news, snom technology AG recently established a distribution deal with Prime Interway, a value-added distributor based in Greenville, South Carolina, with a number of offices in Brazil. As such, the distributor is able to offer snom's entire product portfolio in the country.
