Patton Earns 2017 Product of the Year for PoE Extender

Patton Earns 2017 Product of the Year for PoE Extender

Patton Electronics—US manufacturer of UC, cloud, and IoT enabling solutions for carrier, enterprise and industrial networks—announced today the company’s CopperLink 1101 Power-over-Ethernet Extenderhas claimed the 2017 Product of the Year Award from Communications Solutions magazine.

We are honored to accept this award,” said Johnnie Grant III, Product Line Manager, Patton. “The distance limitations of Ethernet and the challenges of delivering electrical power often make it too expensive or technically impossible for system designers to position endpoint devices where they are needed. Patton technology changes all that.”

Patton’s new Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Extender changes the game for IP-network engineers who design solutions involving IP cameras, IP phones, IP-enabled smart-LED lighting, digital signage, traffic devices, industrial sensors, monitoring devices, flow meters, wireless access points (WAPs), intercoms, sensors, card readers, HVAC controls, PLCs, and a host of other Ethernet endpoint devices.

Available in water-proof IP67-compliant, outdoor enclosures, the CopperLink 1101 PoE Extender extends extend 10/100 Ethernet plus up to 15 Watts of 802.3af (or legacy) PoE up to 3,300 feet (915 meters) to IP-enabled devices using a single pair of common copper telephone wires or coaxial cable.

“Network cabling is often embedded in concrete, inside walls, or buried under asphalt,” Mr. Grant explains. “Replacing all that can cost a fortune! Our solution conserves capital by re-using legacy cabling versus installing new Cat5… or fiber, which can’t deliver power.”

Standard PoE specifies 4-wire cabling, yet the CL1101 operates over 2 wires. By leveraging low-voltage copper infrastructure to deliver power the CL1101 eliminates the expense of a high-voltage construction project while enabling All-IP migration and the Internet of Things (IoT).

“Congratulations to Patton for their success,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “The CopperLink 1101 product line is truly among the most innovative solutions brought market to this year. Patton’s PoE extender series facilitates business-transforming voice, data and video communications. I look forward to continued excellence from Patton in 2018 and beyond.”

Patton’s Highly-Survivable eSBCs Now Support 200 Simultaneous SIP Sessions

Now, with SmartNode 5500 eSBC, organizations with up to 2000 employees can comfortably migrate to All-IP with redundant trunks, automated local registration, and system survivability.

 

Patton Electronics—US manufacturer of UC, cloud, and IoT enabling solutions for carrier, enterprise and industrial networks—announces the new 200-callSmartNode 5500 enterprise session border controller (eSBC).

With the SN5500, Patton has more than tripled the SIP-to-SIP calling capacity of the popular SN5300 eSBC.

The new eSBC aligns squarely with the VoIP calling requirements of organizations that employ over 600 and up to 2,000 people and require secure and reliable connectivity to a SIP-trunk or hosted-PBX service.

The SN5500 is equipped with WAN-access ports that enable redundant wired or wireless network connections that ensure business continuity by providing IP-link failover for system survivability.

With a built-in local SIP registrar, the SmartNode self-learns the session-control data for such SIP endpoint devices as SIP phones, softphones or unified communications (UC) clients. This intelligent eSBC feature eliminates the need for any re-configuration of the end-point, service, or network settings that would otherwise be required to maintain call control in a failover scenario.

In the event of a failure in the provider network or service chain—for any reason—the SmartNode automatically delivers traffic over an alternate path. Whenever the access network, SIP trunk, or hosted service is down, this failover mechanism sustains E-911 service and station-to-station call capability, as well as inbound and outbound calls.
The eSBC can provide CODEC transcoding for up to 16 concurrent calls, offering bandwidth management and WAN optimization for remote and branch-office calls.

TLS/SRTP encryption for voice and signaling data, as well as firewall services, means the SmartNode provides converged voice-and-data security services at the network edge. These services protect the enterprise LAN as well as the service-provider network from such security threats as snooping, hacking, toll fraud, and denial-of-service attacks.

The SN5500 delivers superior performance for reliable fax service while supporting all the essential VoIP and fax protocols, including SIPv2, SIPv2 over TLS, T.38, G.722 HD voice, RTP security with SRTP, fax and modem bypass, and DTMF relay.

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.
