SmartNode™ VoIP... More than just talk!

GAITHERSBURG, MD: Patton Electronics—U.S. manufacturer of SmartNode™VoIP equipment—is now taking orders for the SmartNode Branch eXchange (SNBX) for September shipment.

The new SmartNode IP-PBX appliance for small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) supports up to 500 SIP endpoints (phones) and up to 128 concurrent calls (64 with transcoding).

Featuring pre-installed Windows 7 and 3CX PBX software, Patton’s SNBX simplifies the transition to all-IP communications for small and mid-sized organizations—and the integrators and value-added resellers that serve them.

“It’s about as close to zero downtime as you could realistically get,” said Tyler Delin, Product Marketing Manager for the SmartNode brand. “The typical installation only takes about an hour for an eight to thirty-two call system.” 

Executive managers will surely appreciate the minimized disruption of operations, while VARS and integrators will save hours they would otherwise spend loading the OS and 3CX software—not to mention configuring and troubleshooting interconnected gateways or border-control elements.

Featuring built-in configurations for Patton’s complete line of SmartNode VoIP Gateways, SNBX further reduces the time and cost to deploy an all-IP business-class telephony system.

"SmartNode VoIP Gateway-Routers richly enhance the solution by providing QoS routing for optimum voice quality," Tyler adds. "Patton gateways address just about any challenge organizations face while transitioning to IP telephony, such as integrating legacy telephony elements. And no one can beat our TCO proposition.”

Coupled with a SmartNode VoIP Gateway, the SNBX offers an enterprise-class IP-telephony solution that preserves capital investment by integrating existing fax machines, analog or ISDN handsets or PBX systems.

The SNBX-and-gateway solution extends the useful life of capital equipment while offering a gradual migration to VoIP telephony. The Gateway can also provide fallback/breakout access to the traditional PSTN for survivability during Internet outages—plus local PSTN calling.

SmartNode gateways also address such common challenges as ITSP interoperability when deploying SIP trunks, or setting up Microsoft Lync or IBM Sametime, or similar Unified Communications platforms.

All Patton products come with free gold-standard customer support—including downloadable software updates—reducing total-cost-of-ownership (TCO) while setting the company apart from other industry players.
