While many smaller companies have been reluctant to make the transition to Unified Communications, Patton and Unify offer a solution that makes it fast and easy for SMBs to implement an All-IP solution.
GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND: Patton Electronics—US-manufacturer of award-winning SmartNode™ VoIP solutions, CopperLink™ Ethernet Extenders, and BODI rS™ High Availability Fixed & Mobile Routers—has partnered with Unify to address the global small-to-medium business (SMB) market requirement for appropriately-scaled unified communications (UC) solutions.

The two companies have collaborated to produce the SmartNode OpenScape Business Appliance (SN-OSB), a single-device UC solution designed for businesses with up to 1,000 users that is fast and easy for smaller company’s IT staff to implement.

While many smaller companies have been reluctant to make the transition to Unified Communications, Patton and Unify offer a solution that makes it fast and easy for SMBs to implement an All-IP solution.

The SN-OSB appliance combines Patton’s SmartNode VoIP-gateway technology and hardware manufacturing expertise with Unify’s OpenScape Business S unified communications software to offer an affordable, state-of-the art UC solution for SMBs in a single device.

OpenScape Business S—the new-generation Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) software from Unify—which combines the best of HiPath 3000 and OpenScape Office and plays well with OpenStage IP phones—comes factory-installed and ready to go.

Unlike most UC appliances on the market, the SN-OSB is available with built-in traditional telephony interfaces (PRI, BRI, FXS, and FXO) that connect legacy devices with All-IP UCC services, while supporting SIP Trunks, TDM Trunks and SIP Trunks with TDM or dual-SIP survivability. SmartNode quality and reliability deliver assured interoperability among all systems.

The one-box UCC solution from Patton and Unify is based on Patton’s SmartNode Open Gateway Appliance (SNOGA) hardware platform. The SNOGA’s built-in SmartNode VoIP Gateway is highly interoperable, able to integrate any existing analog, PBX, digital PBX, or DECT phone system with all SIP-based devices and UCC services.

For companies that already have OpenScape but still need a VoIP-gateway solution, Unify has certified all of Patton’s SmartNode VoIP gateways, integrated access devices (IAD) and enterprise session border controllers (E-SBCs) for interoperability with its OpenScape Business software.
