VoIP ATAs Going Obsolete! Connect Legacy to UC Telephony with THIS...

New high-performance eSBCs redefine the future of small-office All-IP communications. With 2-8 built-in telephony ports, Pattons eSBCs do the job of multiple devices—at half the cost of alternatives.

SmartNode™… More than just talk!

“The world is going ALL-IP. Cloud Telephony remains on the rise. In order to achieve convergence many enterprises proliferate their on-premise devices. In one box, a Patton eSBC does the job of two, three, or more devices—at half the cost of alternative solutions.”

GAITHERSBURG, MD, USA: Patton Electronics—US manufacturer of UC, cloud, and IoT enabling solutions for carrier, enterprise and industrial networks—is now shipping a new line of cost-effective, high-performance SmartNode enterprise session border controllers (eSBC) that offer two to eight integrated telephony interfaces.

A typical eSBC provides All-IP, SIP-to-SIP communication only, whereas conversion from traditional analog or ISDN to IP telephony remains the job of a separate VoIP Media gateway. By merging media gateway functions with high-end eSBC capabilities in a single, low-cost, customer-premise device, Patton’s innovation accelerates obsolesce of the traditional Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA).

The new VoIP CPE are designed for small-businesses/small-offices that need to integrate legacy phones, fax machines, meters, postage machines, or POTS/ISDN trunks into ALL-IP communication systems, including on-premise and hosted UC solutions.

The SN5541 offers 2, 4 or 8 FXS ports, while the SN5551 offers flexible combinations of 2 to 8 FXS & BRI ports.

“The world is going ALL-IP,” said Burton A. Patton, EVP. “Cloud Telephony remains on the rise. In order to achieve convergence many enterprises proliferate their on-premise devices. In one box, a Patton eSBC does the job of two, three, or more devices—at half the cost of alternative solutions.”

For businesses with immediate FXS/BRI media conversion requirements: Patton’s SmartNode 4141 FXS and 4151 BRI/FXS VoIP gateways have you covered. Offering license-key conversion to rich-featured eSBC functionality, the new gateways also support inevitable migration to SIP-trunking, unified communications (UC), hosted or cloud-based services.

Carrier Class. Patton’s carrier-grade dual image feature—rarely found in low-port-count CPE—provides fallback/recovery capability for service continuity during network-wide software upgrade. 

Fully Loaded. New SmartNode eSBCs include such state-of-the-art features as SRTP/TLS security, USB cell-modem support, PSTN redundancy, 3G/4G fail-over/survivability, generic routing encapsulation (GRE tunneling), border gateway protocol (BGP).

They also boast the VoIP industry’s longest-reach FXS local loop (10 kilometers at 3 REN)—useful for such applications as off-premise extension.

A built-in BroadSoft PacketSmart Probe for network-monitoring is available.

Last month Patton announced CopperLink™ 1101 PoE Extender kits that leverage copper or coaxial cable to deliver Power-over-Ethernet up to 3,000 feet.
