Snom Partners with Teliax to Deliver VOIP Services

Snom technology, a developer of IP desktop business phones, and Teliax, a provider of voice services and solutions, have announced that snom's 7xx series desktop phones are interoperable with Teliax's VOIP management solution. Snom's 710, 715, 720 and 760 endpoints have passed interoperability and integration testing by Teliax, qualifying these endpoints as preferred devices for operation with Teliax' IVY voice management and service platform.
