Introducing the SmartNode™ 5200 – Enterprise Session Border Router

by John Wu


SmartNode 5200 ESBR

If you are an IT manager, you instantly become a company hero when you introduce a new feature rich IP-PHONE on everyone's desk.  However, the same fame brings with it the immense pain of ensuring that the Enterprise Telephony solution you just deployed is secure. This requires configuring the firewall or the Edge Router to let all VoIP signaling pass through securely. Soon you realize your legacy firewall is not SIP (VoIP) aware. Thus you open yourself to the prospect of keeping all the VoIP related firewall ports open which beats the purpose of having a firewall in the first place. Such headache will often make you wonder if there is a single integrated solution designed to ease your task (and your headaches).  Well, the new Patton Enterprise Session Border Router SN5200 is the perfect solution to this problem. read more]

Tech Spot: Can my SmartNodes do Enterprise Class IP Routing 
by Pranav Desai

So you made a smart choice and bought a SmartNode. With your IP telephony needs planned, you ask yourself, do I really need another router at the Enterprise Edge? Can my SmartNode not work as an Enterprise IP Router instead? Of course it can. Even though Cisco and other high end routers are ideal Carrier Backbone devices the costs don’t justify deploying these in small to medium sized Enterprise Edge scenarios. SmartNode is your one stop Integrated Access Device.

But don’t take my word for it. Lets take a look at a scenario, where an Enterprise needs features like IP routing (static or dynamic), VRRP (optionally to connect to multiple ISP’s) and of course advanced features like Policy Based Routing, Access lists, Nat etc. As you can see the basic setup below, adding a router doesn’t lend you any additional benefits. The SmartNode can function as your Router and fulfill all your Enterprise Routing requirements. [read more]
