snom Technology AG, a developer and manufacturer of advanced VoIP phones for enterprise and residential markets, has announced it has teamed with CudaTel, a wholly owned subsidiary of content security vendor Barracuda Networks Inc., to deliver an end-to-end VoIP communications solution to the SMB and enterprise markets.
The pairing enables businesses to use snom’s portfolio of Linux-based SIP VoIP phones with CudaTel’s recently launched CudaTel Communication Server offering, an IP PBX and communications appliance that delivers dozens of new features and functions managed via a Web- based user interface. CudaTel’s platform is based on FreeSWITCH, a free open-source software communications platform for voice and chat-driven products released under the MPL free software license.
As part of the go-to-market partnership, the companies have conducted interoperability and certification testing to ensure the joint solution is fully integrated and deployment ready and that the two companies’ gear will integrate seamlessly and ease VoIP deployments.
The CudaTel Communication Server comes in four models with prices starting at $2,000 and can support from 25 to thousands of VoIP telephones. It offers automated handset provisioning and deployment call routing, call recording, call queuing, parking, unified messaging and voice mail, conferencing and conference bridges. It also features automated attendant services, Active Directory integration and follow-me functionality. CudaTel also offers unlimited 24/7 phone and e-mail support with each CudaTel server and does not require per-user, per-box or per- feature licensing fees.
The new partnership enables CudaTel CCS users to take advantage of snom’s portfolio of SIP-based commercial-grade VoIP phones, including the snom 320, snom 360 and snom 380, as well as the new snom 820 and the snom 870 color touch-screen phone.
