Patton and RUN Communications Team Up to Offer Canada VoIP Gateways that Just Work

Canada's leading distributor of VoIP solutions will provide support, licenses, training events, sales support and technical information while making local inventory available to Patton's VoIP & Security Partners throughout Canada.

RUN COMMUNICATIONS Distributor: Telecom / VoIP / Security
GAITHERSBURG, MD, and MONTREAL, Quebec: Patton Electronics closed 2012 by announcing the naming of Run Communications as a new distributor in Canada. The new business partnership further broadens Run's portfolio of telephony solutions for integrators, resellers, Telcos and ISPs.

“Patton brings together a great family of scalable solutions for our resellers,” said Ryan Mayoff, Vice-President of Run Communications. “Not only does Patton's SmartNode Gateway fill an important space in our portfolio, it also complements our existing partners such as 3CX and Yealink to create well-priced, scalable and supported solutions for our client base .” 

Patton’s SmartNode products offer the Canadian market a full line of Enterprise-grade Gateways, providing 1 to 32 FXS/FXO and 1 or 4 PRI models with options for built-in IP Routing and transcoding.

What differentiates Patton from other VoIP manufacturers? For one thing, Patton provides free lifetime technical support during business hours for every product sold—including free downloadable software upgrades for the life of the product. Patton also provides seamless integration with 3CX. SmartNode configurations are built into the 3CX Phone System. Further, Patton equipment is made in the USA. SmartNode Gateways are rock solid. Set it up. Forget about it. It just keeps working!

“We highly recommend Patton’s SmartNode gateways,” says Steve Dobrzanski, Director of Business Development for VoIP at Run Communications. “In Canada different central offices use different voltages for their analog lines and this seems to be a problem for other manufacturers’ gateways. It might work fine at one customer site, but then you have problems at another site. For some reason, Patton deals better with this issue than the other gateways. They are extremely reliable.” 

WEBINAR Tuesday 15 January. As a first order of business, Patton and Run Communications will be hosting a webinar on Tuesday 15 January. Joined by 3CX and YeaLink, the webinar will explain how to provide customers with a smooth migration from a traditional PBX to an IP-based 3CX Phone System. The webinar begins at 1 PM EST. Be sure to reserve your seat!

“Appointing Run Communications as a distribution partner demonstrates Patton’s intent to build market share in Canada”, said Sean Gerrity, Regional Director North America for Patton. “Run's proven knowledge and experience qualifies them to promote Patton’s SmartNode™, BODi rS™, and CopperLink™ solutions throughout the Canadian telecommunications and security markets."

Gerrity concludes, "As a stocking distribution partner, Run makes local inventory available to all of Patton's VoIP & Security Partners in Canada. We look forward to long and successful partnership.”
