SmartNode™ VoIP… More than Just Talk!
GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND: Patton—US-based manufacturer of SmartNodeVoIP gateways (ATAs), Routers and eSBCs, and creator of the Patton Cloud edge-orchestration solution—announced today that TMC has honored Patton with the 2019 Communications Solutions Products of the Year Award for its Virtual SmartNode™ (vSN) virtualized enterprise CPE platform.
“We are honored to accept this prestigious award,” said Robert R. Patton (Bobby), CEO. “Patton is proud to sustain the legendary high quality of SmartNode software by introducing this innovative product line. The virtual SmartNode offers a full menu of useful virtual network functions that meet the real needs of business networks with extremely high availability. Plus, it’s amazingly fast.”
Virtual SmartNode boots up in less than 13 seconds according to recent field testing.
Implemented using on-premise hardware, or in the Cloud, the vSN liberates organizations from dependence on proprietary hardware while eliminating performance limitations of purpose-built network appliances.
Powered by the Patton Cloud edge-orchestration service, Patton’s SmartNode NFV software delivers high availability with automated zero-touch provisioning, remote management, and OA&M alerting, alarming, and reporting.
Patton’s virtual customer premise equipment (vCPE) boasts limitless scalability with a floating license model that makes it easy to increase capacity and add valuable services as an organization grows.
The vSN is the only virtual SBC in the market that eliminates capital expense. Offered solely by subscription, Patton’s vCPE service model only incurs operating expenses (OpEx).
One key use case for the vSN is virtual session border controller as a service (SBCaaS). Deployed on a virtual machine, the vSN provides eSBC functionality for SIP trunking, hosted PBX, or unified communications as a service (UCaas).
Patton’s NFV software can also serve as a customer-premise:
- IPv6-to-IPv4 gateway
- VPN server
- IP access router
“We heartily congratulate Patton for this Communications Solutions Product of the Year award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Virtual SmartNode is truly among the most innovative communications offerings on the market today. I look forward to continued excellence from Patton in 2019 and beyond.”
