SIP Trunking with a Legacy PBX
VoIP service offers most users substantial savings (sometimes up to 50–70%), scalability and flexibility. But many businesses are tied to existing telephone equipment because of the cost of installing new IP equipment, retraining employees, and not realizing investment in their current equipment.
The solution? Patton provides their PBX a gateway to VoIP.
Using a Patton SmartNode Gateway you can provide the cost savings and added functionality of SIP Trunking to your existing legacy PBX. Patton’s SmartNode supports all varieties of legacy PBXs, regardless of the type of trunk supported. This includes analog, BRI, PRI, DS3 or STM-1 connections.
Migration Scenario – Legacy PBX to IP PBX
Why throw away perfectly functional phone equipment? A SmartNode can allow you to utilize your existing phone equipment while migrating to IP equipment at your own pace. As your business grows, start investing in next-generation IP telephones while at the same time utilizing your perfectly good analog/digital phone equipment until it needs to be replaced.
• Allow a smooth migration from old equipment to new equipment
• Stage your investments
• Preserve investment in existing infrastructure and extend useful life of capital equipment
• Any-to-any flexible call routing between legacy PBX, IP PBX, PSTN and SIP Trunks.
