Patton-the leader in business and carrier-class network access, connectivity, VoIP and mobile video-surveillance equipment-is now taking orders for two new SmartNode product series for ISDN BRI VoIP users and service providers: the SmartNode(TM) 4120 Single/Dual-Port BRI VoIP gateway and the SN-DTA Singe/Dual-Port BRI VoIP Digital Terminal Adapter.

With initial shipments expected during Q3 and Q4, the new SN-DTA and SN4120 product lines expand the range of NT/TE port combinations available from SmartNode, while adding such enhanced feature options as PSTN fallback, phantom power, and a high-precision clock that solves VoIP interop issues with DECT, PBX, and FAX.

The new models provide replacement options-with superior price/performance-for Patton's S-DTA, SN4552, and SN4554, which are approaching end-of-life.

New port combinations: Patton's new single-port TE gateway (SN4120/1BIS2V) and dual-port NT gateway (SN-DTA/2BIS4V) round out the expanded SmartNode BRI product portfolio while providing cost-effective solutions for specialized customer applications.

High-Precision Clock: The dual-port SN-DTA/2BIS4VHP includes 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.

Fallback with Phantom Power: 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 ISDN market demands exceptional service quality," said Bernhard Fluehmann, Patton's Converged IP Product Manager. "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."

Patton's VoIP track record includes six product-of-the-year awards from INTERNET TELEPHONY® magazine, as well as numerous successful ISDN deployments, including one of Europe's earliest first-line VoIP services.

In related news, Patton recently expanded the SmartNode(TM) PRI gateway series, 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.

Earlier this year, Patton announced IBM Sametime certification and Microsoft OCS certification for SmartNode products.
