SmartNode™ 4960 offers a seamless transition by simultaneously
supporting VoIP and circuit-switched access to SIP and traditional
Preserve your investment in legacy phone equipment while taking the next step toward Unified Communications. Least-cost call routing in Patton’s proven SmartNode™ VoIP solutions optimizes monthly expenses while flexible dialed-numbering plans maintain established business processes.
The Unified Communications Agent™ (UCA) provides any-to-any multi-path switching (simultaneous SIP, H.323, ISDN, and POTS calls with routing and conversion between TDM/PSTN and IP/Ethernet networks—plus T.38 and SuperG3 FAX) combined with dial-backup and IP-link redundancy for VoIP-and-data survivability. Provide VoIP-over-VPN security with voice encryption via IPsec with AES/DES strong encryption and automated keying via Internet Key Exchange (IKE), plus SIP Registrar for presence/reachability.
Advanced router functionality includes Patton’s DownStreamQoS™ delivering the clear advantage of secure, uninterrupted voice-and-data communication. Session border controller capabilities include transcoding for up to 64 channels. Reduce WAN-access bandwidth requirements by converting high-bandwidth G.711 calls on your LAN into lower-bandwidth G.723 calls for WAN transport.
Ensure business continuity. Combining PSTN breakout with IP-link redundancy, SmartNode™ ensures voice-and-data survivability for reliable enterprise-class communications.
Additional options include Patton’s unique high-precision clock enabling first-line IP telephony services in demanding ISDN and DECT environments with reliable FAX and modem performance. Optional built-in broadband access via 11.4-Mbps, 4-wire G.SHDSL.bis or serial X.21 reduces hardware costs, simplifies network architecture, and streamlines service and deployment.
