At Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) customers come first and an integral part of our DNA is creating long-lasting customer partnerships and working with them to identify their needs and provide solutions that support their success. The concept of solutions being driven to address specific customer challenges has been with Cisco since its inception. Husband and wife Len Bosack and Sandy Lerner, both working for Stanford University, wanted to email each other from their respective offices located in different buildings but were unable to due to technological shortcomings. A technology had to be invented to deal with disparate local area protocols; and as a result of solving their challenge - the multi-protocol router was born. Since then Cisco has shaped the future of the Internet by creating unprecedented value and opportunity for our customers, employees, investors and ecosystem partners and has become the worldwide leader in networking - transforming how people connect, communicate and collaborate.

In this time, snom has repeatedly proven its innovative strength by constantly developing new VoIP products and technologies. With the snom 100, the company in 1999 presented the world's first SIP telephone, followed one year later by the implementation of the first SIP stack and the definition of the plug-and-play mechanism for snom phones. In the two years that followed, snom introduced the 4S SIP Proxy and the snom 4S Media Server, developed the snom 200 business telephone, and was the first company to implement Universal-Plug-and-Play (UPnP) on a VoIP telephone set. With the launch of TLS (Transport Layer Security) in 2003 and SRTP (Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol) in 2004, snom then set new standards in security for VoIP telephony. In 2005, snom released the first two models of the successful 300 series: the business-class VoIP telephones snom 320 and 360. One year later came the snom 300, the basic model conceived especially for SMEs and private users. 2007 saw the market launch of the snom 370, the newest model of the 300 series, while that same year the Berlin-based VoIP specialists also presented the next big innovation, the wireless snom m3: the first mobile business SIP-DECT telephone. snom most recently introduced, in autumn 2008, the snom 820, the first model of a new product line which combines sophisticated VoIP technology with exclusive, innovative design. snom telephones are prepared for the future, too.
