The New Patton SmartNode PRI/E1/PRI VoIP Gateways and SBCs

New Patton SmartNode VoIP Gateways and SIP Session Border Controllers Offer Low-Cost, High-Performance, Customer-Premise Solutions for Business-Class IP Telephony and Unified Communications.

SmartNode VoIP… More Than Just Talk!

Gaithersburg, Maryland: Patton Electronics – US-manufacturer of award-winning SmartNode VoIP solutions, CopperLink Ethernet Extenders, and BODI rS High Availability Fixed & Mobile Internet Routers – is now taking orders for the new SmartNode 5570 ESBR T1/E1/PRI enterprise session border controller and the SmartNode 4170 T1/E1/PRI VoIP Gateway.

Designed for mid-sized businesses, Patton’s new-generation T1/E1/PRI SmartNode VoIP solutions come in a smaller-than-ever form factor, at lower-ever-ever price points, while delivering more high-performance features that small and medium companies want.

Built on Patton’s IPv6–ready Trinity operating system the SN5570 and SN4170 offer G.722 high-density voice (HD Voice), TLS-encrypted signaling, SRTP-encrypted voice, and a host of other advanced business-class features.

Providing one or two T1/E1/PRI ports, the new Patton VoIP CPE solutions are ideal for addressing the critical challenges businesses face when transitioning from traditional phone systems to Voice-over-IP and unified communications:

  • IP-enable existing POTS or ISDN phone system for SIP trunking (with optional PSTN fallback for survivability).
  • Integrate SIP phone systems with POTS/ISDN networks for gradual migration to all-IP (with SIP trunk and PSTN connections).
  • Replace costly TDM link to existing PBX (investment protection) with low-cost SIP trunk.
    Connect IP PBX over 1 or 2 PRIs to the PTSN.
  • In SIP-trunking applications, Patton’s split configuration domain ensures secure separation between the carrier WAN and customer LAN with a clear SIP-service demarcation point, while the included WEB Wizard simplifies and accelerates subscriber-side configuration.

In the ISDN world, SmartNode PRI devices enrich the office-user experience with reliable support for such transparent ISDN features as Explicit Call Transfer (ECT), Advice of Charge (AOC), Calling Line Identification Presentation (CLIP) and Calling Line Identification Restriction (CLIR).

An optional high-precision 5 ppm clock source prevents common interop challenges for DECT, PBX, and FAX in ISDN environments.

During the product launch period, Patton is offering distributors and resellers special discounted pricing for qualified early buyers.

In related news, Patton recently joined forces with Target Distributing to help US carrier-providers migrate their customers to all-IP telephony services.
