By Marisa Torrieri, TMCnet Editor
VoIP phone manufacturer snom Technology AG announced Tuesday it has teamed up with Jazinga
Inc., maker of an Asterisk-based blended IP PBX (News - Alert) and router for small businesses.
Through the technology partnership, businesses can now use snom’s portfolio of VoIP phones alongside Jazinga’s (News - Alert) all-in-one MGA120 appliance to ease deployment of VoIP systems and reduce IP telephony costs in the SMB.
According to both partners, the interoperability between snom’s suite of SIP-based business phones and Jazinga’s MGA120 IP PBX appliance creates a fully integrated end-to-end IP-based phone system for small businesses that blends robust enterprise-class IP PBX and networking features for a competitive price point.
“We are pleased to be working with Jazinga and believe this collaboration is a testament to snom’s continued leadership in the open source community as we continue to team with best in class platform partners to deliver superior IP telephony solutions to the enterprise and small business markets,” said Michael Knieling, executive vice president of marketing and sales for snom technology AG (News - Alert). “Jazinga’s MGA120 IP PBX platform offers a compelling set of functionality that addresses a number of key requirements for businesses and enables SMBs to boost productivity while lowering their operating costs.”
Jazinga’s MGA120 IP PBX router allows small businesses with up to 20 employees to take advantage of features like wireless networking, WAN connectivity, LAN services, dynamic DNS, e-mail and fax. Plus, it can be set up in less than 10 minutes through a series of setup wizards.
Additional telephone features offered by Jazinga include voicemail, conferencing, call forwarding, unified voicemail-to-e-mail, on-hold music and more.
“Jazinga is excited to join snom’s partner program,” said Gord Wade, vice president of sales and business development. “snom’s portfolio of IP endpoints is auto-provisioned with Jazinga’s MGA120 platform enabling non-technical users to manage the phones and system themselves. This provides our small business customers with an intelligent, manageable endpoint that blends rich features and unique style and design.”
