snom Extends The Capability Of Its 7xx series IP Phones By Orders Of Magnitude


snom technology, a leading developer of IP desktop business phones, has extended the capability of its 7xx series IP phones with the D7 Expansion Module.

The module works with the snom 7xx series and features 18 multi-colored LED keys which can be programmed with every available snom communications function: call waiting, forwarding, park and blocking, music on hold, speed dial, auto redial on busy, conferencing, multicast paging, intercom, extension monitoring and much more.

The modern module is geared toward executive assistants, call centers and other call-intensive environments where users are responsible for managing and monitoring large call volumes.

The D7 is simple to set up and use. It is powered by the host phone via USB and does not require any extra cabling, IP addresses or administrative management. Users simply plug the D7 into the host phone, and start assigning functions to the keys. Users can daisy chain three D7 modules together for a total of 54 functions. The high-resolution display provides a perfect visual interface, which can be easily configured and labeled via the phone’s web interface or directly on the phone itself.

Further, the buttons on the D7 are digitally labeled, making for a cleaner, ultramodern design for users.

“This is a very simple device that delivers major capabilities that improve productivity and efficiency,” said Tommy Lee, snom’s Director of Partner Alliance. “It’s an absolute necessity for those managing a large number of calls and need to avoid bottlenecks.”

The D7, which works with snom’s UC edition Lync qualified phones as well as SIP-based phones, comes in black and grey and is available now for an MSRP of $139. The module will also work seamlessly with forthcoming IP handsets from snom in early 2015.
