Patton Painting the Future of VoIP, UC with New IPv6-Ready SmartNode SIP-Trunking VoIP Gateways
TMCnet Web Editor
Patton (News - Alert) Electronics has truly positioned itself as a heavy-hitter in the VoIP market. Since 2006, the company has been revolutionizing VoIP technology with its SmartNode 4960 PRI VoIP gateway, which offers seamless transition for enterprises moving toward SIP-based unified communications (UC). Its ability to support VoIP and circuit-switched access to SIP and traditional telephony was groundbreaking in the industry. Today, the company proudly announces that it is now shipping its latest ‘futurized,’ new generation line of IPv6-ready SmartNode SIP-trunking Media Gateways.
Developed for helping enterprises, small-to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and carrier-providers seamlessly transition to the next-generation of Internet connection, Internet Protocol Version Six (IPv6), this new addition to Patton’s already sterling line of world-renowned solutions is aimed at transforming next-generation IPv6 communications altogether, serving as a extension of the company’s solid success and continued excellence.
While Patton is looking at redefining next-generation communications, the company itself maintains its position as a family-owned and operated business; in turn, preserving its abilities to remain detail-oriented and attentive to customer needs – what has ultimately led them to become the award-winning VoIP service provider they are today.
This new series of SmartNode SIP-trunking VoIP media gateways will offer users unprecedented scalability and survivability that is protected against obsolescence when IPv6 goes global. This new solution directly addresses every unique business goal – from IP-enabling legacy voice gear to preserving public switched telephone network (PSTN) access for IP-based voice networks.
You really can have your cake and eat it too with Patton’s new generation of PRI-class SmartNode solutions, as they come at a lower cost while boasting richer, more valuable features. Not only do they tout ‘future-proof’ IPv6-ready hardware, but the SmartNode model 4970, 4980 and 4990 product lines all offer PSTN lifeline relay for greater voice-and-data survivability, as well as optional SIP transcoding for enhanced interoperability. Even more, high-scalable models are available that are field-upgradeable from 30-120 voice channels or calls, offering unprecedented flexibility for booming growth.
In a statement, Tyler Delin, product manager for Converged-Internet Protocol solutions at Patton, elaborated on the increasing needs of growing businesses today, saying, “Growing businesses especially appreciate the new 30 to 120 call units. Countless visitors at all our trade show booths tell us the double investment-protection of IPv6 readiness plus license-based upgradeable call-capacity is a key factor in their selection criteria.”
Patton offers three product lines which are aggressively priced, keeping the needs of carriers, enterprises and integrators in mind. Selecting the perfect solution at the best price – whether for specific network infrastructure, business processes or communications strategies – is what’s needed today to stay afloat. In light of this, Patton offers its customers the ideal, best-priced solution for their specific needs; the SN4970 gateway, the SN4980 gateway-router, and the SN4990 Integrated Access Device (IAD), which are all designed specifically for cost-effective SIP-trunking and UC. Additionally, the 4980 and 4990 offer optional transcoding, providing any-to-any protocol mediation for SIP and H.323 voice, as well as G.711 and T.38 fax.
Patton’s new IPv6-ready SmartNode SIP-trunking VoIP gateways will undoubtedly serve as an outstanding addition to the company’s prestigious, award-winning SmartNode equipment.
