Patton Ships SmartNode VoIP IADs with ADSL Interface

Gaithersburg, MD and Bern, SWITZERLAND: Patton Electronics is now shipping two new SmartNode VoIP Integrated Access Devices (IAD) with a built-in 24-Mbps ADSL2+ WAN interface.

The integrated ITU G.992.5 ADSL modem lowers equipment costs, simplifies network architecture and streamlines service deployment for carrier-providers and small-to-medium enterprises.

The new Patton PRI-class and BRI-class VoIP IADs combine ADSL WAN-access with VoIP gateway and VoIP router functionality in a single device.

Patton's one-box solution eliminates the cost and complexity of an external ADSL modem-in addition to the VoIP CPE-when IP-enabling legacy PBX phone systems. The ADSL IADs present a common interface to the service provider regardless of what voice equipment is in use on the customer premise.

"ADSL is the most popular broadband access technology in the world today," said Tyler Delin, Product Marketing Manager for Patton's converged-IP products. "Yet hardly any PRI gateway manufacturers offer it. Based on our market research and customer feedback we knew this would be a hot product. Judging by incoming orders... building these products was a good management decision."

DSL subscribers number over 314 million worldwide, the majority being ADSL. Roughly 50 million ADSL ports shipped last year-more than any other DSL. Patton is among the industry's first manufacturers to offer carrier-grade PRI VoIP IADs with a built-in ADSL interface. ADSL upstream bandwidth can support 15-30 VoIP calls, which covers the majority of PRI installations.

The ITU G.992.5 ADSL2+ interface is available on Patton's SmartNode 4670 BRI/FXS/FXO VoIP IAD supporting 8 to 16 calls and SmartNode 4990 PRI/T1/E1 VoIP IAD supporting 15 to 120 calls. Both products are ideal for connecting traditional PBX telephony systems with ITSPs and SIP trunking services.

"Customers can use these one-box solutions to IP-enable just about any PBX system over 24-Mbps ADSL WAN access," Tyler adds. "SmartNode also provides advanced IP routing with upstream QoS and Patton's DownStreamQoS-with the industry's lowest total cost of ownership."

SmartNode-like all Patton products-comes with Patton's free gold-standard customer support, which lowers total-cost-of-ownership (TCO), often by half. Whereas most manufacturers require costly support contracts or per-hour charges, Patton provides free lifetime support-including downloadable software updates-at no additional charge.
