SmartNode™ Solves Fax & PSTN Issues for SIP Enterprise Phone Systems
by Marco Liechti
The future telephony system is purely SIP based, and it runs virtualized on a computer. But does the good old fax machine still work with that system, and how does it connect to an ISDN public network? Questions like these are reasons for a still spread skepticism regarding SIP telephony. With the reliable and proven SmartNode™ external gateways, telephony system vendors have an answer that not just outperforms internal PCI cards.

We have chosen three vendors and will tell you how the SmartNodes complement their systems: 3CX, Aastra and LocaPhone (Asterisk based). We will present you one at a time in the next VoIP newsletters. In this issue, you will learn how to setup the SmartNode and 3CX solution...

Simplify Network Management with SmartNode VPN's
by John Wu
Internet is cheap, but the traffic on it is wide open. The SmartNode™ IPSec creates private VPN tunnels ensuring secure VoIP, voice and data traffic while protecting all inter-office voice and data communications over the Internet. The tunnels allow users, located in separate offices, to communicate as if they were connected by a single private network. Now all data, voice and VoIP will be kept from prying eyes and ears while ensuring that all communications came from the trusted source.

Voice over IP is good but the management of all the traffic associated VoIP together with all other data applications in a enterprise router can be a very challenge job. The VPN features in SmartWare can be handy to solve this problem...

Patton & Cablecom deliver Euro-ISDN Voice & Data service 
by Glendon Flowers 

Sascha Jooss

Switzerland's largest triple-play and cable-network provider needed a VoIP solution that deliver ISDN BRIs to the customer premise over existing copper fiber access lines. For Cablecom (as with any provider) CPE cost is the primaryexpense driver in rolling out a service. So price/performance was a key factor in the business case. Yet very few manufacturers offer a working, stable VoIP CPE solution with ISDN BRI interfaces and SIP signaling support.

Happy ending. According to Cablecom Product Manager, Sascha Joos, "SmartNode™ products work so reliably that management never hears from them. That is a good sign."

Carrier's Corner: Multiservice-over-SDH delivers profitable 2G & 3G solutions

Patton's Multiservice-over-SDH Solutions Guide shows how leveraging the reach of SDH preserves profitable legacy TDM services while reducing time-to-market for new Ethernet-based services. Four business cases illustrate how service evolution (rather than service revolution) can reduce CapEx and maximize RoI for both today's and tomorrow's business models. [get it!]
