Patton's Newest Publication Simplifies Router Selection for Carrier, Enterprise and Home-Office Networks
IPLink(TM) Routers...Link Up for Less
GAITHERSBURG, Md., March 8 /-Patton Electronics -- the leader in network-access, connectivity, and VoIP solutions -- announces their new solutions-focused WAN Routers Product Guide showcasing Patton's full range of IPLink(TM) WAN Routers.
The guide will help network designers and administrators select the right WAN-access solution. Loaded with helpful charts, useful decision tables and full-color network diagrams, the 20-page guide illustrates ideal solutions for a rich variety of application scenarios in carrier, enterprise and home-office network environments.
"So often network professionals spend all their time putting out fires," said Joe Gomez, Senior Product Manager. "At the end of the day they're spent. They've no time or energy left for sorting out a complex decision like selecting the best gear for their system. Patton has published our WAN routers guide to make their lives a little easier. It streamlines the decision process."
The solutions-focused guide addresses common networking challenges. Featured solutions include ultra-miniature PPP Ethernet Micro-Bridges, low- cost IPLink(TM) T1/E1 Access Routers, and the recently introduced IPLink(TM) Broadband IP Router series designed to help customers "Link up for less."
Featuring integrated QoS, stateful-inspection firewall with strong encryption, and IP-multicast support, IPLink Managed VPN Routers offer the industry's lowest-cost solution for delivering mission-critical information securely over the Internet (or any non-secure IP network).
VPN routers typically provide security features but lack QoS. Low-cost routers leave out the security and traffic-shaping features businesses need. Patton's unique solution combines high-end, business-class QoS, strong- encrypted VPN security, and built-in T1, E1, X.21, and V.35 WAN interface options, with a very low-cost, fixed-interface design.
"No two customers, no two networks, are exactly alike," said Burton A. Patton, Executive Vice President. "Each environment has some unique characteristic, some little quirk. That's why Patton offers such a wide range of solutions -- over 300 network access and connectivity products in our catalog. That can be a bit overwhelming, even for seasoned professionals. Our new routers guide simplifies things. It breaks it down. The decision's a lot easier now."
Patton is a multi-national manufacturer of voice and data-communications equipment for carrier, enterprise, and industrial networks worldwide. Patton products include SmartNode(TM) VoIP solutions; ForeFront(TM) multi-service access infrastructure solutions for TDM and IP service delivery; IPLink(TM) CPE solutions for last-mile/local-loop access; CopperLink(TM) Ethernet Extenders; EtherBITS(TM) device servers.
