Patton- the leader in business and carrierclass VoIP, network access, connectivity, and video surveillance equipmentis now taking orders for the SmartNode(TM) 5200 Enterprise Session Border Router (ESBR).

Providing anytoany protocol mediation for secure connectivity between IP-PBX systems and Internet Telephony Service Provider (ITSPs), the newest SmartNode(TM) resolves security and interoperability challenges businesses face when implementing SIP trunking.

The SmartNode(TM) ESBR lowers overall equipment costs by including an advanced IP router, QoS, VoIP-VPN security, leastcost call routing and IPlink redundancywith no added licensing or support fees.

"SIP Trunking has entered the mainstream," said John Wu, VoIP product manager, "contributing major interop issues and serious security holes. SmartNode(TM) addresses both challenges, building on a history of success with Patton's interop certification program and secure VoIP VPN technology. What sets the ESBR apart is the absence of hidden costs."

While most SBC vendors tack on perfeature licensing fees and charge for support contracts, Patton includes all SBC features and functionsalong with free tech supportin the product base price.

Infonetics' predicts 89 percent revenue growth for SIP trunking services by 2013.

Although minor variances between vendor's SIP implementations can disable enterprise VoIP systems, protocol mediation in the SN5200 ensures operability among all SIP "flavors" for fast, easy SIP trunking setup.

With a builtin virtual firewall that combines ACLs with policybased routing, the ESBR provides an ideal security solution for enterprises with up to 50 people.

For business with 50 to 250 workers, the SN5200 delivers secure VoIP communications by processing forwarded SIP signaling messages to "SIPenable" an external stateful firewall.

Patton's white paper library offers indepth coverage of SIP trunking, VoIP-VPN security, and VoIP QoS.

During Q2, watch for Patton's SN5400 ESBR, featuring a transcoder that maximizes voice quality by converting lowbandwidth ITSP CODECs to highbandwidth CODECs within the LAN.

"Patton equipment is built in the USA," Wu adds. "so you can count on the quality."

Manufactured at Patton's Gaithersburg, Maryland facility, SmartNode(TM) recently claimed the 2009 INTERNET TELEPHONY® Excellence Awardthe seventh major award in five years for the product line.
