snom 715 VoIP Phone Adds Interop with PBXact, FreePBX

snom technology has announced that its snom 715 phone, available via channel partners, is interoperable with Schmooze Com’s PBXact phone system and its open -ource counterpart, FreePBX.

snom phones can be auto-provisioned via the Schmooze Endpoint Manager, available in both FreePBX and PBXact, which allows for self-installation and management directly from the PBX graphical user interface.

“snom is committed to interoperability with the broadest range of SIP-based platforms, and is pleased to have completed certification with Schmooze Com’s on-premise and hosted solutions,” said Mike Storella, vice president of snom Americas. “The ease of deployment and auto-provisioning via Schmooze’s Manager is a real plus for both VARs and end customers looking for a simplified IP telephony deployment.”

FreePBX has more than one million active production systems, and users ranging from small businesses to large enterprises. The PBXact business telephone system takes all the standard features provided by FreePBX, bundles them with advanced functions and puts them in a fully commercially supported turnkey platform available in on-premise, hosted and cloud options.

“Extensively testing each new snom endpoint with our PBX platforms allows us to offer our partners, customers and user community peace of mind that when they make the decision to utilize snom hardware in their system deployments, they will see seamless interoperability that’s fully supported by both snom and Schmooze,” said Preston McNair, vice president of sales and marketing at Schmooze Com.
