Enterprise Session Border Controllers (eSBCs) from SmartNode VoIP provide network security, assured voice quality and integration with legacy voice systems for SIP trunk deployments. Omitting costly carrier-grade features, Patton’s affordable customer-premise eSBCs deliver essential border-control functions at price-performance levels appropriate for small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs). Branded as SmartNode Enterprise Session Border Controllers (eSBCs), Patton’s eSBC portfolio delivers proven interoperability with all major brands of softswitches and IP PBXs, making it easy for carriers and enterprises to deploy future-proof Unified Communications (UC) systems quickly and profitably today. TCP rate control—unique in the industry to Patton SBCs—provides superior voice quality by ensuring data downloads do not disrupt nor impede voice traffic. SmartNode eSBCs offer TDM telephony interfaces, including two and four-wire POTS analog FXS and FXO as well as digital ISDN BRI and PRI interfaces. Such TDM connectivity is essential for enterprises that want to preserve legacy PBX systems while adopting SIP trunking or preserve legacy PSTN connectivity over TDM interfaces when deploying SIP trunks in hybrid mode. H.323 support in SmartNode session border controllers ensures compatible interoperability of new, state-of-the-art SIP-base unified communications platforms with earlier H.323 installations of IP-based voice networking.

Teach Me: What is an Enterprise Session Border Controller?
An Enterprise Session Border Controller (eSBC) is a customer-premise device that provides the interoperability, security, and survivability required when connecting a business phone system to the Internet Telephony Service Provider (ITSP) network. Omitting costly carrier-grade features, Patton’s affordable customer-premise eSBCs deliver essential border-control functions at price-performance levels appropriate for SMEs, including. . .
Security—NAT and extended ACL provide public-private network separation and fraud protection. Secure voice-over-VPN with AES/DES strong encryption offers protection against snoopers and hackers.
Interoperability—SIP normalization: Back-to-Back User Agent (B2BUA) translates among SIP “dialects” (e.g. TCP in MS-Lync verses UDP in provider networks).
Survivability—For business continuity during Internet outages, local SIP registrar keeps intra-office calls flowing while IAD options provide PSTN backup.
Voice Quality and Bandwidth Management—CODEC transcoding with QoS traffic-shaping enhance in-house voice quality while optimizing utilization of the WAN connection.
Robust Routing—Flexible call routing and dialed-number manipulation provide number portability and numbering-plan continuity. Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) provides fast failover.
IAD Options—Optional G.SHDSL, fiber-optic, EFM (bonded G.SHDSL) or X.21 WAN interfaces reduce overall hardware costs and simplify network architecture by eliminating external modem requirements.
