Snom's IP Desktop Phones And PA-1 SIP Paging Adapter Now Interoperate With Hosted VoIP Service From Clarity Telemanagement

snom technology Inc., a leading developer of IP desktop phones, announced recently that its 7xx series and 8xx series desktop IP phones, as well as the PA-1 SIP paging adapter, are fully interoperable with Clarity Telemanagement’s hosted VoIP service.

snom’s 710, 720, 760, 821 and 870 business phones, and the PA-1 paging adapter, successfully passed Clarity’s validation testing process ensuring full end-to-end integration with its service.

“Hosted phone systems have become a standard component of many businesses today,” said Mike Storella, chief operating officer of snom technology Inc. “Hosted VoIP services and standards-based SIP phones like snom’s offer businesses flexibility, easy communication and significantly lower cost than traditional on-premise setups.”

Clarity Telemanagement, of Lawrenceville, GA., provides advanced VoIP technology services to enterprises, offering a range of products including hosted systems for telephone and mobile solutions.

Clarity’s voice solutions range from an entry level voice and fax $39.99 monthly plan to advanced business offerings that include auto attendant, live answering service, call queue management, call recording, voice and fax broadcasting, and live attendant console to fit any sized business or enterprise need.

The company also offers SIP trunks, which use VoIP to connect an on-site IP-PBX to the Public Switched Telephone Network, enabling the convergence of voice and data on a single IP connection for significant cost savings.

“Clarity Telemanagement is proud to be affiliated with and solely recommend the entire snom series of IP desktop phones for over 5 years and counting,” said George Burkhart, co-founder and partner at Clarity Telemanagement. “We have found that the snom IP desktop product set represents the best of what matters in today’s new age environment. Affordability, flexibility, scalability, feature set, and unmatched durability are why we find snom to be a perfect fit for our hosted VoIP service and advanced solutions.”

The snom 7xx series VoIP telephones uses snom’s eighth generation Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) firmware, which allows interoperability with a wide variety of SIP-based IP-PBXs and soft switches used in small and large office environments worldwide.

Within the snom 7xx series are three models of affordable, full-featured IP phones: the advanced executive snom 760 desktop phone for senior managers and knowledge workers features a high resolution color display, wideband high definition audio, PBX-style keys and advanced VoIP features; the snom 720 manager-level desktop phone offers advanced telephony features with 18-promgrammable feature keys and supports 12 SIP identities, or phone lines. The snom 710 is a general office phone for the cubicle workforce, appropriate for small or large-scale deployments in a multitude of business scenarios. It features five programmable keys and supports up to four SIP identities.

With the certification of the snom 7xx series, 8xx series and PA-1 for Clarity’s VoIP service, snom continues its market momentum. Its partner ecosystem is constantly growing, and includes leading residential and business Internet telephony service providers, application server providers, IP-PBX, hosted VoIP solution providers and unified communications developers.
