Patton Adds Two SmartNode Product Series to BRI VoIP Product Lines

Patton (News - Alert), a provider of network access, connectivity, VoIP and mobile video-surveillance equipment, announced the launch of two new SmartNode product series for ISDN BRI VoIP users and service providers.

The new SmartNode 4120 Single/Dual-Port BRI VoIP gateway and the SN-DTA Singe/Dual-Port BRI VoIP Digital Terminal Adapter expand the range of NT/TE port combinations available from SmartNode. They include features such as PSTN fallback, phantom power, and a high-precision clock that solves VoIP interop issues with DECT (News - Alert), PBX, and FAX.

SN-DTA and SN4120 provide replacement options for Patton’s S-DTA, SN4552, and SN4554, which are approaching end-of-life.

“The ISDN market demands exceptional service quality,” said Bernhard Fluehmann, Patton’s Converged IP Product Manager, in a statement. “ISDN users are notoriously picky, yet SmartNode has a strong reputation for high quality among ISDN customers. With our expanded portfolio of BRI VoIP gateways we will satisfy a greater share of ISDN service-provider requirements to meet the true business needs of many more satisfied customers.”

An important feature of the dual-port SN-DTA/2BIS4VHP is Patton’s high-precision clock (&5ppm) that enables first-line IP-telephony performance — including reliable fax and modem services — in demanding ISDN and DECT environments.

The SN-DTA/2BIS2V offers a fallback port that comes with built-in phantom power that keeps connected ISDN devices powered up in cases where an existing fallback line is removed or the fallback port is not utilized.

The new products are expected to be shipped during Q3 and Q4, company officials said.

Recently Patton expanded the SmartNode PRI gateway series by adding three new model series that enable carriers, enterprises, and integrators to choose the ideal, best-priced solution for their specific network infrastructure, business processes, and go-forward communications strategy.

In related industry news, nationwide wholesale VoIP provider Alcazar Networks spread the news last week that there is finally a low-cost local termination option for VoIP calls, thanks to Alcazar Networks.

Alcazar Networks has expanded its resume of services to now include wholesale local termination (outbound), an offering that promises to provider carriers with substantial cost savings as customers can terminate calls locally at roughly 50 percent of standard intrastate charges. Traffic may be originated anywhere, then handed to Alcazar Networks over a SIP handoff (dedicated facility or public Internet).

Alcazar Networks first began product testing about six months ago and is now excited about spreading the word about its latest offering.
