snom technology has announced that its snom UC edition Lync-qualified phones can leverage Lync server’s native administration interface for easy device management directly from the Lync server.
snom UC edition Lync-qualified phones support in-band device management, overcoming standard provisioning and management challenges. Without this, mass provisioning of Lync-qualified phones has been time-consuming and expensive while also requiring additional infrastructure, snom said.
“This breakthrough solves a major configuration and customization challenge for customers deploying Lync with voice,” snom COO Michael Knieling said. “snom UC edition phones can be managed natively via the Lync Server without the need for additional servers or provisioning tools.”
Required settings such as language, time zone and function keys are assigned by the administrator for individual users, groups of users or specific locations. Because this can all be done directly via the Lync server administration interface PowerShell, the cost and complexity of additional network infrastructure, training and maintenance can be eliminated, the company said.
