GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND: Patton-creator of the Patton Cloud edge-orchestration solution and US manufacturer of world-class network equipment-has won the 2020 Product of the Year Award for its Virtual SmartNode™ (vSN) virtualized network function (VNF) solution.
Designed within the network function virtualization (NFV) paradigm, Patton's (News - Alert) vSN is a virtual customer premise equipment (vCPE) platform that boasts limitless scalability. The floating license model makes it easy to increase capacity and add valuable services as an organization grows.
Offered by subscription, the vSN incurs only operating expenses (OpEx), making it the only virtual CPE in the market that eliminates capital expense.

The virtual SmartNode delivers virtual network functions that meet the real needs of business networks with extremely high availability. And... it's very fast."

In third-party field testing, Virtual SmartNode activates in less than 13 seconds.
"Congratulations to Patton for earning Internet Telephony (News - Alert) Product of the Year," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC.

Powered by Patton Cloudedge-orchestration, SmartNode NFV software delivers high availability with automated zero-touch provisioning and remote management-OA&M alerting, alarming, and reporting.
Implemented in the cloud or on customer premise with bare metal, the vSN eliminates the hardware limitations of a dedicated network appliance that often impede application performance.
