snom technology AG, a leading developer of IP desktop phones and communications solutions, announced today interoperability with Kerio Operator an IP PBX phone system from Kerio Technologies. snom VoIP endpoints can now be auto provisioned through Kerio Operator, enabling quick and easy installation and no-hassle management directly from the PBX. The following snom models are currently certified for the Kerio Operator solution: the snom 300, snom 320, snom 370, snom 710, snom 720, snom 760, snom 821 and snom 870 desktop phones; the snom M9 cordless DECT handset; the snom Meeting Point conference phone; and the snom PA1 public announcement system.

Combining snom endpoints with Kerio Operator gives small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) a complete, end-to-end voice solution. Value Added Resellers (VARs) will appreciate the seamless auto provisioning and quick deployment with Kerio Operator. Kerio Operator customers will gain access to the full range of snom endpoint phones to meet any staff requirement or business requirement.

snom produces a dependable lineup of stylish, high performance desktop VoIP phones, including conference and public announcement systems and a cordless DECT handset that offer exception value to SMBs, said James Gudeli, Vice President of Business Development at Kerio Technologies Inc. We worked closely with snom to test their endpoints with Kerio Operator, and the validation process went smoothly.
