snom ONE Mini IP PBX First Impression Review

 

WP_000715

snom is starting to accumulate a bit of a history producing solid state mini PBX hardware: the CS410, Sheeva Plug PBX and now the snom ONE Mini.

Some unique things about this device that I noticed: The unit is, well, mini. The unit can be powered by Power Over Ethernet. (snom says a 60Kwh per year) The snom ONE mini hardware can handle 20 extensions and has quite a few features. The device support IPV6.

An interesting possible use for the device to be a failover PBX server in case the primary communication system fails. A separate and intersting use: This device is not Lync Certified, but it is possible to integrate snom ONE to Microsoft Lync, so by extension snom ONE mini should have no problem. (see guide here)

Some quick Specs

  • Runs snom ONE software
  • Entirely solid state
  • Supports 20 extensions
  • According to snom uses less than 60kWh per year (compared to 876kWh for a PC)
  • Power it with POE
  • IPv6
  • This unit can act as a backup SIP registrar for cloud services failover
    • Also, using snom phones it can act as Voice backup server

Some Interesting Specs

  • 1.4GHZ ARM Processor (running Linux)
  • 512MB NAND/512MB RAM
  • 1GB Ethernet
  • USB 2.0 port

Cons

  • No analogue pstn connectivity ports (FXO/FXS)
  • Unit can handle 20 extensions, but device includes free extension 10 license (it appears you need to pay for a 20 User snom ONE Yellow license)
  • There is no LED to indicate the system is up and running?

Some of my notes:

  • Includes no PSTN Ports connectivity, only SIP trunks supported (I supposed Ethernet PSTN gateway will work)
  • No Audio In/Out for Music On Hold and Page Out. You will need to use a MOH file and the snom PA for paging
  • 1 NIC means no 2 NIC for creative stuff
  • Appears to be using the same enclosure as snom m9 DECT phone! (just interesting note)
  • The snom ONE Mini has gold trim (to differentiate it from snom m9 enclosure I suppose.)
