Simicomm to Auto-Provision snom IP Phones
Madison, WI - September 10, 2007 - Simicomm (TradeMark) today announced its continued focus on simplifying VoIP for small business deployment. A leader in applying auto-provisioning technology, Simicomm has added snom IP phones to its list of EasySpeak-compatible phones that require no programming. Just plug them in out of the box and they work. EasySpeak is the newly released 15 minute phone system that removes the complexity of VoIP installation and management for small businesses.
"snom has gained significant momentum recently in its mission to provide businesses worldwide with the simplest IP telephony system implementations possible," said Dr. Michael Knieling, CFO and executive VP of marketing and sales for snom. "In conjunction with Simicomm, snom is taking the meaning of simple one step further and leading industry efforts in auto-provisioning."
Without EasySpeak PBX, provisioning phones has its challenges. A channel must be created for the phone and numerous files such as extensions and voicemail have to be configured. Many steps are necessary to set up the phone, involving the IP address, web interface, server name and auto settings. In general, it takes about ½ hour per phone to set up manually. With the EasySpeak PBX exclusive auto-provisioning feature, phones are provisioned, with full functionality, right out of the box.
"Adding an IP phone leader like snom will increase handset options for resellers and their customers," said Ron Miller VP sales at Simicomm. "We expect the move to increase our visibility, especially throughout Europe where Berlin-based snom is a dominant presence."
snom joins Polycom and Linksys as phones auto-provisioned by EasySpeak. To use analog phones, a line card from Digium or Sangoma is required. Changing of extensions and management of other features can be made by logging into the novice-tested, web-based toolbox.
