||Implementing Microsoft Lync into small and medium businesses’ (SMBs) existing networks can be challenging,
especially when essential network elements or sub-systems are not compatible or certified with
Lync. Such equipment, software and services may include:
• Non-Compliant SIP Phones
• Non-Compliant IP PBX
• PSTN Lines
• Analog Phones
• ISDN Phones
Many SMBs want to install Lync but cannot afford the costs of replacing their existing noncompatible equipment with new
Lync-certified equipment. Meanwhile, some organizations are just not ready to leave their
trusted PSTN lines behind.

challenges.Patton's SmartNode VoIP Gateway are Microsoft Lync Certified. That gives
any enterprise the
ability to connect otherwise noncompatible SIP endpoints, PSTN lines and legacy telephony to
