Before I get started here- In an effort to provide the reader with full disclosure and also just a bit of information about me… I’m a Polycom Fan 100% – There’s no better phone line in the market today. I tell this to you as a user and also as a person that sells them… Lots of them… I do this for a few reasons- Some of you may remember the old FUD saying “nobody ever got fired for buying IBM equipment”? — Well, IMHO the same can be said for Polycom gear. It just works and works well. Their painstaking attention to detail on the software side was simply a feature of the amazing hardware that has let them lead the space for so long.
Sangoma continues to make waves in the IP telephony hardware space by releasing their new SNAP provisioning portal for Vega series gateways.
“The SNAP Tool makes it easy for service providers and their channel partners to deliver all of the advantages of SIP trunking to businesses that want to continue using existing TDM-based phone systems,” said Jeff Dworkin, director of marketing for Sangoma. “A number of regional and national SIP trunking providers have already taken advantage of the SNAP Tool to help ensure fast and efficient turn-up of new customers on their SIP networks.”
Sangoma’s new SNAP APP is an easy to use provisioning utility that is web based and currently supports the full line of Vega analog and T1 gateways. Sangoma has also announced future support for their recently announced session border controllers.
“Each service provider determines the mix of analog and digital interfaces in the gateway, and collaborates with Sangoma to create a configuration file that is fine-tuned to work on the network,” continued Dworkin. “We expect that the simple operation and assured network interoperability possible with the SNAP Tool will save time and money for service providers and their channel partners by dramatically reducing installation and troubleshooting efforts.”
Friday is a great day no matter how you look at it. For starters it’s the last day of the week, there’s no denying that this day brings relief and signals the the start of something better (the weekend). It should also be mentioned that the VUC is a Friday ritual here at .e4- for years we have been listening in and occasionally participating in this weekly event that brings joy and information to VoIP geeks the world over. That being said, today is different.
