SmartNode™…More than just talk!

SmartNode eliminates the interoperability obstacles for companies that want to keep their legacy PBXs, phones, speakers, pagers, and fax equipment, existing FXS/FXO POTS service or ISDN BRI/PRI lines when implementing a unified communications solution based on Lync.
Enterprises operating otherwise non-compatible voice equipment and telephony network elements—including non-qualified SIP telephony systems—can use Lync-qualified SmartNode VoIP gateways to connect and interoperate with the Lync unified communications server.
By interconnecting Lync software with legacy voice technologies and the PSTN, SmartNode preserves investment in operational equipment while adding such rich benefits as voice-and-data survivability and least-cost call routing—all with the set-it-and-forget-it reliability of SmartNode.
The 2013 re-qualification assures customers that SmartNode interoperates seamlessly and reliably with Microsoft's Unified Communications software.
“When it comes to solving interop challenges, Patton’s history is long and strong,” said Burton A. Patton, EVP, “not only with Microsoft and Lync, but in the VoIP industry overall. SmartNode was the world’s first VoIP gateway that could actually get VoIP working in some extra-tricky ISDN environments.”
In May 2011 Patton announced Microsoft OCS certification for SmartNode VoIP Gateways.
In June 2012 Patton announced Microsoft Lync certification for SmartNode.
Swiss-engineered and US-manufactured at Patton world headquarters, SmartNode was the first Microsoft Lync-Certified VoIP solution to offer BRI interfaces.
Microsoft is a Patton-Certified Enterprise Communication Partner for Lync and OCS.
In 2008, Patton solved VoIP interop challenges for DECT, PBX, and FAX in ISDN environments by incorporating a high-precision clock in digital SmartNode™ VoIP IADs.
Last month, Patton announced a new Element Management System that offers Telecom carriers touch-less provisioning with centralized monitoring, control and troubleshooting for SmartNode and third-party VoIP CPE.
