Centile Telecom Applications and snom join forces to offer Unified Communications services

snom technology AG, leading developer and manufacturer of IP handsets and Centile Telecom Applications, the leading European Unified Communications platform developer, today announced their partnership to deliver business-class Unified Communications services to operators and services providers in the UK.

The Centile Istra platform provides operators and service providers with the tools they need to quickly develop, deploy, and monetise innovative, compelling new services over existing networks, to the broadest range of user devices. The integration work undertaken between snom handsets and the Centile Istra platform enriches service provider’s offerings when compared to deployment using standard SIP handsets.

The Centile and snom integration offers innovative features including n-party conferencing, boss/secretary, call park/pickup, presence, chat, and voice call continuity. Of particular interest to business users is the ability to move seamlessly – for example from their snom IP terminal to their mobile, without disrupting the caller. In addition, snom handsets enable the user to manage the parking zone by BLF buttons, the display of the caller picture, the visual configuration of BLF and buttons via the Web provisioning console.

Bertrand Pourcelot, DG at Centile explained “The integration of snom handsets (7xx Series, 8xx Series and the extension module snom Vision) with Centile’s Istra platform enables service providers to deliver the highest level of Unified Communications and FMC services from the network to IP and mobile devices. Moreover, the integration includes the “Plug&Play” Redirect Server technology and Firmware & Configuration files auto-provisioning. Each of which provides the service provider with competitive advantage through speed to market for new customers” added Bertrand Pourcelot.
