SmartNode...More than just talk!

At ABP’s annual travelling convention for IP technology resellers, Patton has been presenting a just-announced SmartNode VoIP product: the SmartNode Branch Exchange (SNBX). 

Patton’s SNBX debuts as part of a multi-vendor office-in-a-box IP-telephony solution for enterprises that integrates the SNBX with SmartNode VoIP Gateways, Grandstream IP phones, and Vitelity SIP trunks.

Patton will begin taking orders for the SNBX at the DC-area event. 

Launching under the catchphrase “One solution fits all,” the unified enterprise VoIP system addresses just about any challenge a business is likely to face when making the move to converged communications. The solution supports up to 500 SIP extensions and up to 64 concurrent VoIP calls with transcoding.

“ABP Tech offers a one-stop-shop for complete solutions for any SMB's IP-telephony setup," said Tyler Delin, Patton's Converged-IP Product Marketing Manager, "by partnering with four best-of-breed vendors. We are excited to showcase the new SNBX appliance. It makes installation and management quick and easy with Windows 7 and 3CX Phone System factory installed."


The SmartNode Branch Exchange is a network appliance running 3CX’s windows-based IP-PBX software that streamlines overall system setup and deployment with built-in configurations for SmartNode VoIP Gateways.

"SmartNode VoIP Gateways and Routers are essential elements in the total solution," Tyler adds. "They interconnect with legacy telephony elements while providing such key functions as QoS routing for optimum voice quality. And with Patton’s free customer support, no one beats our TCO proposition.”

SmartNode solutions address such common challenges as IP-enabling an existing PBX, preserving PSTN access/breakout/fallback when launching a new IP phone system, and resolving interoperability issues when deploying SIP trunks, or setting up Microsoft Lync or IBM Sametime, or other unified communications software.

Patton products come with free gold-standard customer support. Unique within the industry, Patton’s free-support proposition reduces total-cost-of-ownership (TCO). Most manufacturers require costly support contracts or per-hour charges. Patton provides free lifetime support—including downloadable software updates—at no additional cost.

After the DC show, ABP's IP Technology Road Show will head to Chicago for a June 6-7 event. Register Now. Touring throughout the summer, the show will make its final stop in La Paz Bolivia during September 1-2.
