As edge orchestration changes the way business-class ALL-IP communications are delivered, the Patton (News - Alert) Cloud offers tremendous advantages for telecom and unified-communications service providers as well as subscriber organizations.

GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND: Patton—creator of the virtual SmartNode (vSN) virtual CPE and US- manufacturer of world-class network equipment since 1981—has won TMC’s (News - Alert) Internet Telephony 2020 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award for its Patton Cloud network edge orchestration service.

Supporting the software-defined network (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) paradigms, the Patton Cloud enables Telecom and unified communications as a service (UCaaS) providers to easily provision, manage, monitor, secure, alert, troubleshoot, analyze, and optimize services on the customer premise.

On the topic of industry awards, Patton has been keeping good company: 

Last week, at the World Communication Awards, the Deutsche Telekom (News - Alert) (DTAG) Next Generation IMS (NIMS) cloud-automation project—which is enabled by Metaswitch products—won "Best Network Transformation Initiative".

Patton’s ALL-IP and hybrid VoIP solutions are certified for interoperability with both DTAG and Metaswitch.

“We consider it a high honor to have been chosen for this significant award,” said Robert R. Patton (Bobby), CEO. “Edge orchestration is substantially changing the way business-class ALL-IP communications are delivered. The Patton Cloud offers tremendous advantages for service providers as well as subscriber organizations. Plus we’re constantly improving—always making it better!”

Patton is fully committed to continuous ongoing enhancement for its cutting-edge software-as-a-service (SaaS (News - Alert)) network-edge orchestration platform:

Since its release in 2018, the company has added such capabilities as OA&M messaging (including alerts, alarms and performance-monitoring notifications sent to mobile teams).

Next, Patton added advanced LAN discovery and end-point management functions.  Most recently the company has enhanced the Patton Cloud with Call-Quality and CDR Monitoring—plus packet-capture and call-reporting features.

“Congratulations to Patton for scoring yet another Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “The Patton Cloud is a truly innovative product in the ALL-IP industry.”

Tehrani continued:  “Patton’s edge orchestration service ranks on the top-shelf among communications offerings on the market today. I look forward to continued excellence from Patton during the years to come.”

In 2005, Patton won the Product of the Year Award from Internet Telephony Magazine (News - Alert) for its innovative SmartNode™ 4630 BRI So VoIP Router.

Since that time, the company has earned well over two dozen industry awards for its innovative—and diverse—networking products and solutions.

In related news, on Tuesday past, Patton released its new US-manufactured C1D2 industrial Ethernet switch for deployment in hazardous environments.
