Snom and Digium

Digium, the developer of the Open Source telephony system Asterisk, has worked with German IP Phone manufacturer snom to ensure interoperability of the desk phones with Digium’s Asterisk Business Edition.

The snom 360 and snom 320 phones, available in Australia from Alloy partners, are a SIP-based family of IP telephones engineered and priced for the SME market. In announcing as a Digium Premier Interoperability Partner, snom can assure the phones provide access to the rich feature sets of the Asterisk IP PBX.

“By partnering with innovative companies like snom, we can offer the business community more options and features when building high-end telephony systems based on Asterisk,” said Jim Webster, director of Software Technologies at Digium.

“We look forward to working together with snom to expand the VoIP market and at the same time communicate the important role open source will play in the telecom market.”

The Asterisk Business Edition, the professional-grade version of Asterisk runs on industry standard servers equipped with PCI telephony interface cards. This highly cost-effective approach combines Voice over IP, TDM, switched and Ethernet architectures in one solution.

Digium provides quality hardware and software products that enable telephony applications including legacy PBX, IVR, auto attendant, next generation gateways, media servers and application servers. Digium also offers a full range of professional services including consulting, technical support and custom software development services.

The code for Asterisk was originally written by Mark Spencer of Digium and was continued to the open source world. It supports a wide range of TDM protocols for the handling and transmission of voice over traditional telephony interfaces, and VoIP packet protocols such as IAX, SIP and H.323.
