Patton Electronics—US-manufacturer of award-winning SmartNode™ VoIP solutions, BODI rS™ High Availability Fixed & Mobile Routers, and CopperLink™ Ethernet Extenders—is unveiling the new SmartNode™ 5300 Enterprise Session Border Router (ESBR) this week at CeBIT.
Deployed as customer premise equipment (CPE) in telecom carrier and Internet Telephony Service Provider (ITSP) networks, the SN5300 Session Border Controller (SBC) eliminates common interoperability challenges with enterprise subscribers’ chosen telephony equipment and software.
Ideal for carrier-providers that offer SIP trunking services for Unified Communications (UC), Patton’s newest SIP SBC solution provides SIP-to-SIP normalization for up to 250 VoIP calls—with industry-renowned SmartNode set-it-forget-it reliability.
The SN5300 is designed to meet requirements specified by an incumbent national carrier in Western Europe (formal announcement coming soon).
“SmartNode SBCs go way beyond avoiding the dreaded truck roll,” said Marc Aeberhard, SmartNode Product Manager. “How about preventing subscriber complaints? High-quality voice, fax that works, fraud protection, voice-and-data survivability… these are only a few of the SmartNode benefits that make business subscribers happy. Carriers like happy customers.”
Proven interoperability with every major customer IP-PBX, carrier softswitch and core SBC—combined-with Patton’s auto-provisioning service—means carrier-providers can use the SN5300 to activate new subscribers quickly and easily, with no interop snags and no expensive truck roll.
An optional built-in EFM interface enables carriers to deliver high-speed services using their existing copper network facilities—without the added cost and complexity of an external EFM modem.
The included stateful firewall prevents intrusions from the public network, so the SN5300 can also serve as a network-access router, further reducing network complexity while lowering hardware costs.
Industry-standard upstream and Patton’s DownStreamQos™ are implemented in the SN5300 to ensure high-quality voice within the subscriber premise, while the SmartNode SIP registrar feature preserves intra-office calling if the Internet connection fails.
Meet Patton at CeBIT this week in hall 13, stand C76.
