Linux-based VoIP phones validated with open source IP PBX

May 30, 2006 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 3 views

Snom reports that two of its Linux-based business VoIP phones have completed interoperability validation with a commercially supported version of Asterisk, an open source IP PBX (private branch exchange) and application server offered by Digium. Additionally, Snom has joined Digium's partner network, it says.

Snom phones validated for use with Digium's Asterisk Business Edition include the high-end 360, pictured above, and the conferencing-oriented 320, pictured at right. Both phones provide “simplified access to the rich feature sets of Asterisk IP PBX,” Snom says.

Additionally, Snom has joined Digium's Asterisk Partner Program. The Program was created in response to growing Asterisk demand and an expanding third-party ecosystem, Digium says.

Jim Webster, director of software technologies at Digium, said, “By partnering with innovative companies like snom, we can offer the business community more options and features. We look forward to [expanding] the VoIP market and [communicating] the important role open source will play in the telecom market.”

Dr. Micahel Knieling, marketing director at Snom, added, “For many people, it is nothing new that snom VoIP phones are compatible with Asterisk, but now it has been officially proved.”
