snom UC edition business phones now managed by Microsoft Lync
Posted on 17-May-2012 08:10. | Tags Filed under: News.



snom technology AG is introducing a new beta release of firmware for its snom UC business phone portfolio for Microsoft Lync. Called “Apollo,” the new snom software features new configuration and management capabilities designed to accelerate the speed and simplicity for deploying and operating Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Enterprise Voice and snom UC edition phones in large multi-site business environments.

The new snom UC firmware also supports unique features for its ‘Qualified for Lync’ endpoints designed specifically for enterprise level installation of voice-enabled Microsoft Lync, including Music on Hold, Boss/Admin and integrated Presence capabilities.

“Apollo delivers a range of new capabilities to make mass multisite deployment of voice-enabled Microsoft Lync with snom UC SIP-based business phones faster and easier,” said Mike Storella, snom technology, Inc. Chief Operating Officer. “Resellers and businesses alike will appreciate the technical benefits of these management and usability features that translate to bottom line savings for their Lync deployments.”

snom “Apollo” comes with integrated configuration and management of snom UC endpoints within Microsoft Lync Server provides “plug and play” deployment simplicity. Native software updates for snom endpoints can be made and managed directly from the Microsoft Lync server.

An “Easy sign-in” via extension and PIN enable snom UC devices to request and start using a client certificate for authentication, eliminating the need to enter full NTLM credentials. This makes the phones independent from password changes – a critical need in businesses where password changes are frequent. The “hot desking” functionality allows users to sign into multiple accounts.

The new firmware also adds support for call parking and integration with survivable branch appliances for continued communication during a WAN outage.

A new Boss/Admin feature simplifies the flow of calls between two co-workers such as a boss and his/her administrative assistant, including line monitoring and intercepting incoming calls. One party can can also make calls on behalf of the other.
