We all knew this would come sooner or later. Due to the popularity and demand for further OCS support on snom phones Microsoft has officially certified snom products to tie along with the increasingly popular Microsoft Communications Platform. Snom VoIP phones will now enter in the OCS/Lync game which we all know was severely limited in options until now. There will no longer be a need to spend several hundred dollars on a specific phone simply because it was the only certified choice.
The snom OCS Edition (snom Open Communication Solution Edition) combines the advantages of the open IP telephony standard SIP with the integration into Microsoft®'s Office Communication Server 2007. snom phones are the first open-standard SIP phones with native Microsoft® Office Communication Server 2007 integration.
“Green IT“ is the hot topic in information technology – not just during the CeBIT. A sustainable and encompassing “green strategy“ does not stop at energy-saving servers, computers, and monitors, but also includes phone communications.
With snom VoIP phones you can be certain that you are also conserving energy when making calls!
The choice of IP phone is more important than the choice of your IP PBX solution. Open Standard based phones that operate vendor independently are a long-term asset protection since they can be used with any standards based IP-PBX system. The smarter the IP phone, the better.
