Snom was founded in 1996 with in Berlin, Germany. In 1996, Snom commenced production of VoIP telephones with the introduction of the Snom 100 model. It was initially based on the H.323 protocol, but gained SIP support the following year. In 2000, the company saw the opportunity to make interoperable components for enterprise communication systems. Instead of selling one telephony platform solution, the company would sell VoIP phones that are compatible across standards-based platforms from different vendors. This became possible with the introduction of the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP).
The Snom D717 is a high performing device that is both good looking and practical. Featuring HD audio and a color-screen, this entry-level IP phone is perfect for both small or large scale deployments.
The D725 has 18 freely programmable multi-colour function keys in three rows – a design that allows D725 users to have a complete overview of all calls at their fingertips. This, combined with the ability to support up to twelve SIP identities, makes the Snom D725 handset an ideal candidate for intensive phone usage.
Snom has developed a SIP bridge (PA1) enabling businesses to extend their existing public announcement speaker system while upgrading from digital/POTs systems into SIP-based voice communication solutions.
