Patton-the leader in business and carrier-class VoIP, network access, connectivity, and video surveillance equipment, joins ABP Technology-value-added distributor of IP Telephony and IP Video solutions-at the eighth annual IP Sizzles conference today to unveil and promote the new VoIPReady(TM) offering.

With ABP's VoIPReady(TM) program (see example solution ), integrators and resellers can attract new enterprise customers and increase profits by delivering survivable, value-added SIP-trunking solutions that essentially bootstrap themselves.

VoIPReady end-customers can realize the cost savings and worker productivity of survivable SIP-based communications, while preserving and leveraging existing voice equipment such as Key Systems or PBX-based phone systems.

"It's like getting a new business phone system-in-a-box," said Robert Messer, president of ABP, "that connects with all your existing phone equipment. The new phone lines are 100% SIP-based, offering all the advantages of IP telephony... lowered costs, richer features, teleworking capabilities-everything with no headaches and no hassles."

"It is an easy way for a business to take the plunge," said Sean Gerrity, Patton Sales Director for North America and Japan. "In a relatively short time, the money saved with SIP trunking can fund future purchases toward all-IP communications, such as an iPBX or SIP-based hard or soft-phones."

VoIPReady delivers fully-provisioned, tested, and quality-assured SIP-trunking solutions based on Patton's SmartNode VoIP CPE products, pre-configured by ABP for interoperation with Broadvox SIP trunking services.

"ABP completely pre-configures and fully tests each VoIPReady solution on the carrier end before it ever ships," Messer explains. "VoIPReady solutions take all the complications out of customer-site implementation."

"VoIPReady basically makes system activation a no-brainer," Gerrity observes. "Once the elements are plugged in and turned on, the system sends a ping back to Broadvox, then it all lights up and starts working."

ABP's reseller partners can order new pre-configured lines, or get a block of temporary numbers to use right away-forwarding the old lines while waiting for the old telephone numbers to get ported.

To handle any network deployment issues on the customer end, ABP's trained staff of Patton Certified SmartNode Specialists offers first-line technical support to resellers or the end-customer's IT team.

"We like that SmartNode VoIP gateways, routers and IADs are manufactured in the USA," Messer adds. "The reliable high-quality of American-made products is a major feature for value-added resellers."

ABP, in strategic alliance with Patton, provides order fulfillment, pre-configuration and provisioning services that ensure timely, hassle-free delivery of SmartNode products throughout the Americas and Caribbean.

Held during 9-11 August in Dallas, Texas, and on 30 August in Bogotá, Columbia, IP Sizzles offers resellers and integrators a front row view of the best IP Technology solutions in IP surveillance, IP infrastructure, IP video and IP telephony.
