Berlin-based snom technology AG has treaded into IP-PBX territory with the offering of snom ONE in three flavors: free (for 10 extensions or less), yellow (20 extensions), and blue (unlimited extensions with multi-tenancy). The IP-PBX technology came from its acquisition of PBXnSIP, according to No Jitter. More interestingly, the company known for its IP phones will give away the 10-extension snom ONE if you buy the phones — a very attractive offer for a small business operation.
