Vodia PBX Posted October 21, 2010 Report Share Posted October 21, 2010 As many of you probably already know, pbxnsip is now part of snom (see http://www.snom.com/en/news/press-releases...p-pbx-snom-one/ for the press announcement). What does this mean and what are the next steps? If you downloaded the snom ONE free edition, you will see that not too much has changed. The software is essentially the same, just a few changes: The web interface is the same, just the banner and the copyright texts and links have been changed. That means if you know how to use pbxnsip, you will know how to use snom ONE. The product now needs to be activated through an activation code. The PBX will then fetch the real license key from a snom server and provisions the key. This was necessary in order to sell the product through standard distribution channels which arenot able to handle complex license codes. The PBX is now stricter with the certificates. This makes it possible to provision snom phones without passwords (well, at least those models that come with a built-in certificate). This is a big step forward regarding simplicity of installation. We also started to include 64-bit versions in the build process on a regular basis. This is to deal with the increasing number of devices that use TLS connections for secure communications. Registrations now check what phone type is registering. Only a certain number of "third party" devices are tolerated on the different versions. This is tribute to the trend in the industry to sell complete systems and subsidize the sale of endpoints or PBX (depending on what view you have). We will keep selling pbxnsip builds under the pbxnsip brand for some time for those that want to use other devices; however those licenses will obviously not be subsidized. All in all, I think this is good news as pbxnsip is now part of a bigger team. This will be piece of mind for many corporate customers that were worried about the company size and it will help getting more marketing and sales power behind it. The last few weeks were quite exciting and we are more optimistic than ever that this PBX will be a fantastic product in the SME market space.
