snom technology Unveils New Provisioning Solution to Accelerate Enterprise VOIP and Unified Communications Deployments for snom Distributors and Resellers

-     snom Active provides the secure, automatic provisioning, configuration and administration of snom phones when implemented with Microsoft Lync, IP PBX or hosted VoIP solutions – speeding installation and activation and reducing deployment cost and complexity -

Woburn, Mass. (November 2, 2011) - snom technology AG, a leading developer of IP desktop phones and IP communications solutions, today introduced snom Active, a new secure and hosted provisioning solution for snom IP phones being deployed as part of an integrated business IP telephony or unified communication (UC) system. snom Active provides snom distributors and certified value-added resellers (VARs) with a free advanced provisioning and management tool for snom phones and endpoints that boosts the speed and efficiency of the deployment process for VARs’ implementing VOIP or UC in the enterprise.

“snom Active gives our channel community a powerful solution for managing their fleet of snom desktop phones for enterprise-scale VoIP or unified communication implementations during the earliest stages of deployment - provisioning and configuration - when speed and efficiency are the most critical success factors,” said Mike Storella, snom COO. “By making the registration and activation process of snom phones faster, simpler and more scalable, snom Active can exponentially improve the implementation process for enterprise VoIP or UC enabling our snom distributors and resellers to grow their top line while reducing their bottom line in the process.”

snom Active provides snom partners with the remote capability for bulk configuration, provisioning and ongoing administration of snom’s SIP endpoints, including live updates of snom software and firmware. As a hosted, web-based service, snom Active offers VARs a highly reliable platform to manage and provision hundreds to thousands of snom phones across multiple distributed sites. snom Active features include:

• Auto provisioning
• Managed snom subdomain
• Guaranteed 99.999% system uptime
• Bulk phone configuration
• Fleet and system-wide management and administration
• “White label” hosting opportunities
• Custom setup (office and end user level profiles)
• Full remote deployability
• Unlimited re-registerability on handsets
• Full HTTPS config traffic
• Managed password protection
• Military-grade security

Seamless UC support

The snom Active hosted provisioning service provides full support of the entire portfolio of snom phones in unified communications environments, including the snom 3xx and snom 8xx series’ of desktop phones, the snom m9 cordless DECT phone, and additional snom endpoints, including the snom Meetingpoint conference phone and the snom PA1 public address system.

Fast and Efficient snom provisioning with Microsoft Lync 2010

snom Active also supports the snom UC line of Microsoft Lync 2010-qualifed snom phones, including the snom 300 UC edition and the snom 821 UC edition, bringing the speed and simplicity of configuration and provisioning to large enterprises deploying snom UC phones with Microsoft Lync. snom Active with Lync also allows for managed password protection, meaning system and IT management do not need to know end-user passwords, which complies with access security protocols in many organizations.

Broad deployment with IP PBX, hosted and managed VoIP business services

For VARs offering hosted, managed or IP PBX communications services with snom endpoints, snom Active offers an easy-to-use management platform with guaranteed uptime and a new level of scaled network visibility and manageability.

By streamlining most provisioning and management functions of a snom IP telephony system, snom Active helps maximize cost efficiencies by eliminating costs associated with support, administration and maintenance. Official snom distributors and certified snom VARs can also qualify to offer hosted “white label” snom Active provisioning service, a customized and branded solution that snom channel partners can offer to their end customers.

The snom Active service is now available free of charge to certified snom resellers and official distributors worldwide.
