Patton and Partners will Promote VoIP Buyback Program at ITExpo
February 01, 2011
Together with strategic partners ABP Technology, VoipStore and Elastix, Patton will exhibit SmartNode™ VoIP equipment at ITExpo, publicizing Patton’s VoIP buyback promotion and distributing coupons for free VoIP training.
GAITHERSBURG, MD: Patton—the leader in business and carrier-class network access, connectivity, VoIP and mobile video-surveillance equipment—joins key strategic partners at ITExpo East this week to exhibit SmartNode™ VoIP equipment and promote Patton’s VoIP buyback promotion offering cash rebates for other manufacturer’s VoIP gateways, routers and Integrated Access Devices (IADs) replaced with SmartNode™.
Delegates can meet Patton representatives with partners ABP Technology (booth 322), VoipStore (booth 701), Elastix (booth 1009) and others. ABP will also be distributing coupons redeemable during 2011 for free technical training in Patton’s three-day VoIP certification course.
During recent months, Patton’s operations have steadily gained momentum in the VoIP and Unified Communications sectors as Patton has focused on strengthening relationships with key business and technology partners in the Americas and worldwide.
Most recently, Patton added EHCP certification for proven interoperability with Elastix’ iPBX to the extensive listing of Patton-certified SmartNode™ technology partners.
Patton’s business partner, VoipStore, has produced a library of video tutorials featuring Patton’s SmartNode™ 4960 PRI IAD and SmartNode™ 4110 Analog FXS/FXO gateway in joint solutions with 3CX, another Patton partner.
Last year Patton joined ABP on the master distributor’s IPSizzles tour and jointly marketing SIP trunking solutions that bundle SmartNode™ with such Patton-certified solutions as Broadvox, Asterisk, 3CX and others. ABP currently offers an enterprise-class SIP Trunking package--simple and quickly-deployed—that features SmartNode™ gateways integrated with traditional and/or IP PBXs.
“We call it VoIP Ready™,” said Sean Gerrity, Patton’s regional director for North America and Japan. “It is a compelling concept. As strategic partners, ABP and Patton provide a pre-configured system combining Broadvox SIP trunks and SmartNode™ VoIP gateways. It’s fully-tested and delivers proven interoperability.”
The blogs are certainly buzzing. On windowspbx.blogspot.com, Matt Landis recently wrote: “I am a longtime fan of Patton gateways because [they] just seem to work. . . it's not only me. . . the whole Windows PBX community prefers Patton PSTN gateways over the alternatives according to my Feb 2010 survey.”
Tony Graziano, recently wrote “What gateway should I use?” for blog.myitdepartment.net. He says: “When I have a choice, I choose Patton.”
