Snom Releases Phone Featuring VPN Security
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone manufacturer snom technology recently launched an IP business phone, the snom 370, which features advanced VPN security measures that provide complete voice traffic protection.
The snom 370 increases VoIP security by acting as a VPN client, enabling encrypted tunnels for all voice traffic between the snom phones and the company IP PBX. The new VPN feature also eliminates all Network Address Translation (NAT)-traversal issues often experienced with Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). The 370 also features a larger display with built-in greyscales, and an expanded memory for increased application support such as presence indication and presence displays of other users. It can support several audio devices simultaneously, such as the handset, headset and loudspeaker. A multicast paging mode makes it possible to use the phone for large-scale public announcements. This is in addition to providing the ability to broadcast text messages to all snom phones in an installation.
