Patton Showcases New High-Performance eSBC at BroadSoft Connections 2016


Dumb VoIP ATAs are going obsolete. Patton’s SmartNode eSBCs offer an ideal solution for cloud-connecting SMB customers and their legacy devices to BroadSoft based services.

SmartNode VoIP… More than just talk!

GAITHERSBURG, MD: Patton Electronics—US manufacturer of UC, cloud, and IoT enabling solutions for carrier, enterprise and industrial networks—is showcasing its new line of SmartNode high-performance enterprise session border controllers (eSBCs) this week as a Gold Sponsor at BroadSoft Connections 2016.

By unifying all the customary VoIP gateway functions with high-end eSBC capabilities as a single appliance, Patton's eSBCs redefine the future of unified communications. By doing the work of several network elements at half the cost of comparable alternatives, SmartNode eSBCs are accelerating obsolescence for the typical Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA).

Now, service providers can reach all-IP and UC customers while integrating legacy devices into the cloud-connected future, by delivering SIP-interop, edge-router, voice-and-data encryption, and VoIP media-gateway functions—along with TDM survivability—all with a single SmartNode eSBC. 

“Patton is united with BroadSoft in driving successful and innovative BroadSoft Business mobile unified communications, team collaboration and contact center solutions,” said Taher Behbehani, chief digital and marketing officer, BroadSoft. “We are thrilled that Patton has chosen to make this announcement at Connections, and to join us as we collectively change the game by transforming our industry and the market.” 

Interoperable with BroadSoft since 2013, Patton’s auto-provisioned eSBCs with built-in telephony ports enable remote management of network services all the way to the customer premise.

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

The innovative Patton formula drives more hard-won revenues to the service provider’s bottom line by delivering substantial cost savings during installation and operation.

SmartNode eSBCs offer a built-in BroadSoft PacketSmart probe that makes it easy to monitor and optimize network performance from any location worldwide.

The combination of such high-performance features make it faster and easier to activate, operate, monitor, measure and troubleshoot the latest SIP-based communications services. That means providers can sell more services to more SMB customers. 

Summing it all up, Patton’s eSBC portfolio delivers the ideal customer premise equipment (CPE) solution for telecom carrier-providers that deliver BroadWorks and BroadCloud-based call control platforms to small and medium businesses (SMBs).

In related news, Patton recently scored TWO 2016 Product of the Year awards for the SmartNode 5540 eSBC with built-in analog ports and the CopperLink 1101 Power-over-Ethernet Extender.
