3CX, developer of the award-winning Windows VoIP PBX 3CX Phone System, and Patton, a renowned VoIP Gateway manufacturer, announce that through their strategic partnership 3CX Phone System and Patton's SmartNode Gateways are certified, interoperable and automatically configurable. 3CX Phone System customers and partners can deploy 3CX with SmartNode Gateways knowing that they will be provided with full support from both companies.

"This strategic collaboration between 3CX's best-of-breed Phone System and Patton Gateways allows us to offer our customers a cutting-edge Unified Communications solution with quality hardware. Patton Gateways are renowned for their quality and top notch technical support. This strategic partnership solidifies our ongoing partnership and provides iron cast guarantee to partners and customers that 3CX Phone System will be 100% interoperable and fully supported by both companies, providing unparalleled peace of mind", said Nick Galea, 3CX, CEO.

Automatic Provisioning of Patton Gateways with 3CX

3CX and Patton guarantee full interoperability between 3CX Phone System and SmartNode Gateways by extensively testing each firmware against 3CX Phone System before its release to partners and customers. 3CX and Patton have guaranteed response times to fix any interoperability issues.

VoIP Gateways still a requirement in almost every PBX deployed

Notwithstanding the popularity of VoIP, companies insist on using their existing telephone lines, as they still provide unparalleled reliability. Others may need to integrate their existing legacy telephony equipment and fax with their VoIP system. For these reasons, VoIP Gateways are required.

Patton Gateways are superior to add-in cards as they are more reliable and easier to maintain. They also allow 3CX Phone System to be virtualized with Hyper-V or VMware. With their reputation for quality, Patton Gateways provide the consistency that a PBX requires.
