GAITHERSBURG, MD: Today at ITEXPO Patton raises the curtain on the new high-capacity SmartNode™ 10200 VoIP media gateway series for carriers and large enterprises. The newest member of the SmartNode family supports up to 2048 voice or fax calls—with extensive inter-protocol transcoding*—while providing T1/E1, DS3 or STM-1/OC3 trunks with SS7 signaling. 

By adding a high-capacity solution for 512-to-2048 SIP/H.248 VoIP or T.30/T.38 fax calls in a 2U form factor, today's announcement expands Patton's SmartNode portfolio far beyond its former 2-to-120-call range. 

Deployed as customer-premise equipment (CPE), carriers can use the SN10200 to deliver high-density SIP/H.248 VoIP and classic TDM/SS7 voice and fax services concurrently. Deployed as core, edge or peer-interchange equipment, the SN10200 enables carrier to migrate their legacy service networks toward IP-centric architectures. 

For large enterprises and call centers, the SN10200 interconnects traditional and iPBX phone systems, to deliver high-volume SIP trunking with sustained performance levels up to 90 completed calls per second (CCPS). By providing transcoding among all voice codecs and signaling protocols, the SN10200 ensures seamless interoperation with all major softswitches. 

"The global network is still converging," said Burton A. Patton, Executive Vice President. "Although legacy equipment is aging, it provides reliable service. Traditional PSTNs still generate revenues and profits. Carriers need classic TDM and advanced IP networks to interconnect and interoperate, and our SmartNode 10200 is the industry’s most reliable—and cost-effective—solution.”  

The SN10200 delivers superior reliability and system uptime with SS7 link redundancy, dual power-supply support, and field-upgradeable components. Boasting power consumption averaging two-thirds lower than comparable alternatives, the SN10200 lowers operator energy costs.
