ProVu celebrate 10 years of snom distribution

10 years of snom distribution

Yes it is hard to believe, but it is now 10 years since ProVu supplied their first snom phone. Back in 2002 when England had just lost again to a fluky Ronaldinho goal in the Japanese World cup and Broadband was just becoming widely available with speeds of just 256K ProVu reached agreement with snom to become their first UK Distributor.

Even in those days it was clear that VoIP was going to represent a major challenge to the long established traditional communication methods of ISDN and analogue lines. And with the advent of affordable Broadband and the SIP voice protocol it was clear that businesses were going to want to take advantage of the flexibility to call colleagues and customers anywhere in the world using the same Internet connection that they were using for normal business data.

The first snom model to be sold by ProVu was the snom 100 (view the snom 100 datasheet) which had an elegant designed handset. This also had the habit of elegantly sliding off the cradle with the slightest of knocks or vibrations to the table. snom quickly moved on to the snom 190 and 200 which set the standard for SIP phones with their ability to be provisioned automatically and technically superior SIP stack.

Ten years on snom have moved from strength to strength, with a wide range of phones and ancillary equipment that is still considered at the cutting edge of internet telephony.

ProVu are delighted and proud to have been snom’s UK Distributor for over 10 years now and look forward to achieving even greater success over the coming years.
