The Virtual SmartNode (vSN) is a virtual CPE, designed to run in virtualized enterprise networks, telephony service provider data centers, cloud-provider infrastructure, and other environments. The vSN can act as a session border controller (SBC) for SIP Trunk solutions, an IP access router, or a VPN server.
As a purely OPEX solution, the vSN can also act as a gateway between IPv4 and IPv6 networks to provide interoperability. Patton’s virtual CPE eliminates the hardware limitations that often impede application performance. One centralized portal delivers multiple solutions.
