Berlin: In Snom Technology’s 20th anniversary year, four Snom IP desk phones have been certified fully interoperable with Centile’s ISTRA platform, a multi-tenant cloud-based unified communications PBX for fixed-line operators. Snom and Centile will present their solution at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona 27 February – 2nd March 2017 at booth #5B81, Hall 5.
Following a rigorous testing process, the Snom desk phones D305, D315, D345 and D375 successfully passed the interoperability program and now offer businesses the largest and most complete portfolio of full-featured, standards-based IP desktop phones fully compatible with the Centile ISTRA platform.
The Centile and Snom integration enables service providers to offer end-user customers innovative UC and FMC features such as N-Party conference, boss/secretary, call park/pickup, presence, chat and Voice Call Continuity - of particular interest to business users as it enables them to move seamlessly ---- from their Snom IP terminal to their mobile ---- without disrupting the caller. In addition, Snom desk phones enable the user to manage the parking zone by BLF buttons, the display caller picture, the visual configuration of BLF and buttons via the Web provisioning console.
The qualification of these four Snom desktop IP phones with Centile ISTRA platform gives organisations versatility and flexibility in selecting and installing endpoints that closely align with their business processes. The phones are sophisticated, yet affordable, and support a rich set of advanced features,” said Mark Wiegleb, Snom Technology’s Head of Interop & Integration. “Snom’s partners can now offer their business customers the widest selection of full-featured, standards-based IP phones.”
Bertrand Pourcelot, DG at Centile explained: “The integration of Snom desk phones with the Centile ISTRA platform enables service providers to deliver high-level unified communications and FMC services from the network to IP and mobile devices. Moreover, the integration includes the “Plug&Play” Redirect Server technology and Firmware & Configuration files auto-provisioning. Each of which provides the service provider with a competitive advantage through speed to market for new customers.”
