A better way to find your answer is to deconstruct the problem, Rao.  Confirm that you can ping the host, and tnsping the service; if they work, my next step is usually to leave off the password until prompted for it.

the $1@ is probably being interpreted on the command line as a substitution

put the entire connect string in single quotes

sqlplus 'dbsnmp/abcdqwe$1@(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=abcd123)(PORT=1521))(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVICE_NAME=ABCDEFG)))'
