(PresseBox) (Huntsville, Ala., ) With the release of Switchvox SMB 4.0, Digium®, Inc., the Asterisk® Company, now makes it easier than ever to deploy snom VoIP phones. The partnership between Digium and snom technology AG, a leading developer of VoIP phones, allows Switchvox®, the web-aware IP PBX designed for small-to-mid-sized businesses, to automatically detect and provision snom 3 series phones, as well as the company's new 820 phone. This capability reduces setup time and allows businesses to easily and inexpensively deploy phones to the desktop.

snom's devices are developed specifically to meet the needs of the SMB by offering desktop and wireless devices that combine the latest technology with innovative designs. The company's desktop 3 series handsets have long had a place in offices around the world while its new m3 wireless mobile device takes advantage of the latest technology to offer clear voice and strong data transmissions.

"Digium and snom have a strong history of partnership and innovation that makes it easy for the business community to use Asterisk and snom together," said Digium's Bill Miller, vice president of product management. "Now this extends through to the latest version of Switchvox SMB, and is especially important in the European market, where snom holds a particularly strong position."

Switchvox SMB is designed for businesses that want a full-featured voice over IP phone system for hundreds of employees per server at a fraction of the cost of traditional PBXs. With Switchvox SMB, Digium offers the power and functionality of Asterisk-the most popular open source telephony software in the world-combined with advanced yet easy-to-use administrative features and close integration with several communications methods and the web.

"snom and Digium have a long and strong relationship in ensuring that our products work well together," said Dr. Michael Knieling, sales and marketing director for snom. "Our goal is not only to make the products interoperate, but to take full advantage of all that Switchvox has to offer."
