Snom Headsets, Accessories and PA Systems
Your guide to Snom accessories and headsets
Part of the UC Today Snom Endpoint Buyer’s Guide.
In the past, communication in the business space was very simple. Most companies gave their employees a standard desk phone, and that was it.
Now that the communication is evolving driven by trends like user experience, globalisation, remote working and collaboration, the average “endpoint” has become more complex. Aside from the basic desk phone, technology vendors are also investing in state-of-the-art accessories, headsets and more for their end-users.
Since 1996, German communications manufacturer Snom has produced cutting-edge VoIP and SIP technology for the small to mid-sized business space. Here are just some of the things that Snom offers to supplement and support your comms stack.
