Gaithersburg, MD and Woburn, MA (PRWEB) August 26, 2013
snom technology Inc. and Patton Electronics announced today that they are expanding their existing partnership by offering telephony bundles in North and South America through value-added distributor ABP Technology.
Beginning August 30, the companies will sell a bundle consisting of snom’s SIP-based VoIP phones and Patton’s SmartNode Branch eXchange (SNBX) appliance preinstalled with Windows 7 and 3CX Phone System software.
The telephony bundle will be showcased at the ITEXPO West show in Las Vegas from August 27-29. It will simplify the buying process, decisions and installations, as resellers and integrators simply have to decide only how many phones they need, how many simultaneous calls are required, and whether they are connecting legacy equipment to the IP-PBX infrastructure.
“Answer those questions and your bundle is ready to be shipped and installation couldn’t be easier,” said Tyler Delin, Patton’s product marketing manager. “The SNBX will ship to your door with Windows 7 and 3CX Phone System already installed.”
From there, all that is necessary is to input the 3CX license key to unlock simultaneous calls and provision snom’s IP phones using the 3CX auto-provisioning tool.
“We are happy to extend our partnership with Patton, as we can now offer SMBs a total solution consisting of our standards-based SIP IP phones and their IP-PBX and VoIP gateway for legacy integration,” said Mike Storella, snom chief operating officer in North America. “Our phones already work very well with the 3CX IP-PBX engine. Selling these previously discrete components as a whole just makes buying and installing that much easier. Plus, customers have one point of contact for service.”
The bundle will be available through ABP Technology, a Dallas-based distributor specializing in IP telephony solutions. Buyers can expect competitive pricing on the bundle, compared with purchasing the same components discretely.
In addition to bundling the IP-PBX, IP phones and VoIP gateway, customers also have the option of a bundle that includes VoIP routers, which prioritize voice traffic over data traffic.
Patton and snom will showcase these products together at ITEXPO in Las Vegas August 27-29 in the snom booth (#715), as well as the ABP booth (#730).
