SmartNode™ VoIP... more than just talk!
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Patton Electronics—US manufacturer of UC, cloud, and IoT enabling solutions for carrier, enterprise and industrial networks—is now taking orders for a new set of VoIP CPE designed to satisfy market demand from small-businesses and their service providers for FXS, BRI, and All-IP solutions.
Supporting 4 to 256 SIP sessions (VoIP calls), the new series of SmartNode VoIP Gateways and enterprise session border controllers (eSBC) was developed in response to customer requests for small-business solutions that interconnect traditional digital ISDN and analog POTS trunks, phones and fax systems to modern IP-based business networks and cloud-based service providers.
Purpose built for low-port count applications, the new SmartNode CPE offer many flexible combinations of 2 to 8 telephony ports, including:
2, 4 or 8 FXS
2 FXS & 2 BRI
4 FXS & 4 BRI (coming soon)
“Our SME customers told us exactly what they need,” said Bret Patton, SmartNode Product Manager. “We are addressing those needs with devices that provide exactly and only the interfaces customers require.”
“Offering perfect port configurations combined with well-known software quality, these new SmartNode products deliver truly competitive value for clients making the transition to All-IP,” Mr. Patton said.
Fully Loaded: The new SmartNode models include such state-of-the-art features as SRTP/TLS security, USB cellular modem support, dual software image, PSTN redundancy and fail-over, generic routing encapsulation (GRE tunneling), and border gateway protocol (BGP).
A built-in BroadSoft PacketSmart Probe for VoIP network assessment and monitoring is also available as a licensed feature.
The new products will be generally available in August 2016.
Patton will brief global channel partners on the new SmartNode CPE during two webinars on 6 July.
