Patton's New VoIP IAD Wins Unified Communications 2007 Product of the Year
SmartNode™ claims its fifth major award in three years as UC-magazine recognizes SmartNode™ 4650 for outstanding innovation.
SmartNode™ & SmartLink™ VoIP... more than just talk
The announcement marks the fifth major award SmartNode™ has claimed since 2005. Patton won Internet telephony® magazine’s Product of the Year for 2005, 2006 and 2007, while Patton’s converged customer solution won the 2007 Excellence Award.
Combining an on-board G.SHDSL.bis port with dual Ethernet ports, and up to 5 BRIs for 8 concurrent calls, the SN4650 interconnects existing TDM and ISDN-PSTN infrastructures with SIP and H.323 VoIP equipment and the (IP-based) unified communications cloud.
“We are honored,” said John Wu, VoIP Product Manager, “to receive this prestigious award. the SmartNode™ 4650 puts small to medium businesses in the fast lane on the road to Unified Communications. In the current frenzy, certain vendors are hyping their UC features as hot news. Yet SmartNode has been unifying communications for years.”
Offering every industry-standard interface combined with SessionRouter™ call-routing and numbering-plan adaptation, SmartNode™ has provided universal dial-plan support for unified communications for over five years—along with such features as DownStreamQos™ for enhanced voice quality.
Recently, Patton announced their Unified Communications Agent (UCA) for SmartNode™ VoIP routers. The UCA provides VoIP and data survivability via dial-backup and IP-link redundancy, voice and data security via Voice-over-VPN, and presence/reachability via SIP Registrar.
SmartNode™ UCA streamlines deployment of unified communications into existing business networks by providing simultaneous any-to-any multi-path switching between SIP, H.323, ISDN, and POTS calls with routing and conversion between TDM/PSTN and IP/Ethernet networks–plus T.38 and SuperG3 FAX.
Patton’s upcoming silver anniversary will mark 25 years of integrating legacy and next-generation technologies.
“Patton has proven they are committed to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace. Unified Communications is pleased to grant a 2007 Product of the Year Award to their SmartNode™ 4650,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Editor-in-Chief of Unified Communications magazine. We’re proud to honor their hard work and accomplishments and look forward to more innovative solutions from Patton in the future.”
Winners of 2007 Product of the Year Award will be featured in the March 2008 issue of Unified Communications magazine, www.uc-mag.com.
