CardDAV Support

Snom does support LDAP directory lookup for ages. It also supports vCard import.

However, it seems that CardDAV [1] is becoming increasingly common, particularly in small to medium-sized enterprises [2].

Therefore I propose adding native CardDAV support to Snom phones in order to lookup contacts stored on CardDAV-based servers. Part of the required code should already be available with the existing support of vCard (data storage format) and LDAP (lookup mechanism) and may be (re)used.


[2] Many groupware solutions targeted at this kind of customers (take ownCloud/NextCloud/*Cloud as an example) support CardDAV instead of LDAP. These groupware solutions become increasingly popular as they facilitate syncing with mobile devices, where the CalDAV and CardDAV protocol family excels. It is only natural that these kind of customers wish to sync their business telephones with the same dataset as they sync their mobile phones with.

Some news available here? Even consumer class FritzBox routers will provide this feature within a few weeks...

Hello Catalina,

Can you give us some feedback on the status of this request ?

At the end of last year, saidly I have lost a potential buyer, because snom is not compatible with their NAS - CardDAV, would have been supported...

Best regards,

Vorsichtig Rückmeldung, die ich dazu nun erhielt: 

Vorerst leider nicht zu erwarten, da du viel andere Themen abgearbeitet werden müssen, aber durchaus auf der Wunschliste und als gutes und sinniges Feature aufgenommen.

Ich denke also mindestens fürs nächste Jahr lohnt sich eine Übergangslösung.

An SNOM: Bleibt dran - auch 2021 wird ein Weihnachten haben!    ;-)
