/PRNewswire/ -- Patton Electronics (
)—together with Patton-Inalp Networks—announced today the "futurized" new generation of IPv6-ready
SmartNode™ SIP-trunking VoIP media gateways
for enterprises and carrier-providers is now shipping.
During 2006, Patton
rocked the VoIP market
with the SmartNode 4960 PRI VoIP gateway. Now, six years down the road,
Patton rocks on
. The still family-owned multinational enterprise is now shipping a whole new generation of SIP-trunking VoIP products that enable seamless transition to the next generation of Internet communication: Internet Protocol Version Six (IPv6).
Whether it's IP-enabling legacy voice gear, or preserving PSTN access for IP-based voice networks, the new series of SmartNode SIP-trunking VoIP media gateways offer SMBs—and the carrier-providers that serve them—a scalable, survivable solution that is protected against obsolescence when IPv6 goes global.
The new generation of PRI-class SmartNode solutions for SIP-trunking applications is lower in cost, yet richer in valuable features. In addition to "future-proof" IPv6-ready hardware, the SmartNode model
product lines offer PSTN lifeline relay for greater voice-and-data survivability and optional SIP transcoding for enhanced interoperability—plus highly-scalable models that are field-upgradeable from 30 to 120 voice channels/calls that offer more flexible growth.
"Growing businesses especially appreciate the new 30 to 120 call units," said
, Product Manager for Converged-Internet Protocol solutions at Patton. "Countless visitors at all our trade show booths tell us the double investment-protection of IPv6 readiness plus license-based upgradeable call-capacity is a key factor in their selection criteria."
three-segment approach launched last year
, Patton offers each customer the ideal, best-priced solution for their specific needs. The
Integrated Access Device (IAD) are all designed for cost-effective SIP-trunking and unified communications. The 4980 and 4990 offer optional transcoding, which provides any-to-any protocol mediation for SIP and H.323 voice—plus G.711 and T.38 FAX.
Each of the three product lines is aggressively priced so carriers, enterprises, and integrators can select the ideal solution—at the best price—for their specific network infrastructure, business processes, and go-forward communications strategy.
