Niederwangen, Switzerland: Patton—US manufacturer and multinational vendor of telephony hardware and software, virtual CPE, and cloud edge-orchestration solutions—together with Orange Business Services (OBS)—announces the SmartNode eSBC product line is certified for interoperation with the Business Talk IP (BTIP) SIP-trunk offering (France) and the Business Talk (BT) service (International)—as well as the secure Internet versions of those services: BTIPoI (Business Talk IP over Internet) and BToI (Business Talk over Internet).

Patton’s SmartNode eSBC product line offers a competitive solution for SME’s that want to transition their corporate telephone network to ALL-IP. Using SIP-TLS and SRTP protocols, Patton eSBCs provide secure end-to-end communication over a dedicated or Internet-access SIP trunk.

Patton’s range of SBCs includes:
  • The SmartNode SN500, an entry-level model that covers the access needs of small companies and SMEs by managing 4 to 30 SIP sessions.
  • The SmartNode SN5500 and SN5600, models that support higher-density sites by providing up to 200 and 1000 concurrent SIP sessions respectively.
  • The Virtual SmartNode (vSN), a virtualized CPE solution that offers a software SBC based entirely on the OpEx model.

The entire SmartNode range uses common software and supports IPv4 and IPv6.

SmartNode eSBCs deployed on OBS SIP trunks may be managed by the Patton Cloud, a multi-tenant administration platform accessible from an ordinary Internet access. The Patton Cloud communicates in real time with SmartNode eSBCs via a secure tunnel. The edge-orchestration service provides “zero touch” configuration, provisioning, and monitoring, with one-click updates. The Patton Cloud also provides an integrated license server that manages a dynamically-allocated, on-demand license pool.

The OBS certification was carried out in accordance with the VISIT (Voice for IP VPN Support of IP Technology) program, which includes all the specifications for connecting to SIP trunks provided by Orange Business Services.

“Patton is an historic VoIP manufacturer,” says Xavier Morlon, Product Manager Business Talk over IP services at Orange Business Service. “The SmartNode eSBC offering is internationally recognized. It meets the specific needs of OBS, both functionally and commercially—at a time when OBS intends to develop its SIP trunk offering—in particular over the Internet.”

"Being referenced by Orange is the holy grail of any manufacturer,” said Roland Leocadio, Sales Director Patton Southern Europe. “We are honored to have been selected at the end of a rigorous certification phase. 

"The successful certification demonstrates Patton’s ability to meet the current needs of incumbent operators, who require smooth and transparent migration from End-of-Life ISDN services to SIP and unified communications delivered by competitive and highly-secure products.”
