Patton Electronics—manufacturer of SmartNodeTM VoIP equipment—has launched a new line of customer-premise Enterprise Session Border Routers (ESBRs) for small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) and carrier-providers.

SmartNode ESBRs deliver the assured interoperability, security, and survivability businesses and service providers require when connecting an IP phone system to the service-provider network.

Enterprises: SmartNode ESBRs offer cost-effective session-border-controller (SBC) solutions for SIP-trunking, unified-communications and IP-telephony while ensuring compatibility of in-house systems with preferred service providers.

Carrier-Providers: SmartNode ESBRs provide a consistent private-to-public network interface with touch-less auto-provisioning, set-it-forget-it reliability, and remote management—plus proven interoperability with just about any SIP-based product on the market.

For most enterprises, carrier-grade session border controllers (SBCs) are overkill, handling thousands of calls and costing $15,000 to $150,000 MSRP.

Patton’s new-generation SN5480 ESBR and SN5490 ESB Integrated Access Device (ESB-IAD) support 32 to 192 SIP-to-SIP calls—featuring IPv6-ready hardware and costing only $500 to $5,000 MSRP.

Patton’s very-low-cost SN5200 ESBR offers a 4-to-32-call SBC solution in the $300 to $500 range.

“Why buy a rocket launcher to swat a fly?” said Tyler Delin, Product Manager. “SmartNode ESBRs are right-sized tools. They address the common challenges businesses and carriers face when setting up IP telephony. And with SmartNode quality built in…they never stop working.”

Omitting costly carrier-grade features, Patton’s affordable customer-premise ESBRs deliver essential border-control functions at price-performance levels appropriate for SMEs:

Security—NAT and extended ACL provide public-private network separation and fraud protection. Secure voice-over-VPN with AES/DES strong encryption offers protection against snoopers and hackers.

Interoperability—SIP normalization: Back-to-Back User Agent (B2BUA) translates among SIP “dialects” (e.g. TCP in MS-Lync verses UDP in provider networks).

Survivability—For business continuity during Internet outages: local SIP registrar keeps intra-office calls flowing; IAD options provide PSTN backup.

Voice Quality and Bandwidth Management—CODEC transcoding with QoS traffic-shaping enhance in-house voice quality while optimizing utilization of the WAN connection.

Robust Routing—Flexible call routing and dialed-number manipulation provide number portability and numbering-plan continuity. Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) provides fast failover.

IAD Options—Optional G.SHDSL, fiber-optic, EFM (bonded G.SHDSL) or X.21 WAN interfaces reduce overall hardware costs and simplify network architecture by eliminating external modem requirements.
