Validated with Microsoft Skype for Business, Patton Delivers Cloud-Powered Integration
3.19.2019


SmartNode VoIP gateways and eSBCs, validated by TekVizion, integrate legacy telephony, ALL-IP communications—or both concurrently—with Skype for Business

SmartNode™ VoIP… More than Just Talk!

“Executives know effective communication with customers, partners and employees is key. SmartNode interoperability with Skype for Business means increased mobility, enhanced teamwork, heightened customer engagement, and higher productivity.”

Robert R. Patton
President and CEO

Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA:  Patton—US-based enabling solutions provider for unified communications (UC), UC-as-a-service (UCaaS) and Cloud—now announces all SmartNode VoIP products version 3.X—including Virtual SmartNode (vSN)—are validated for interoperability with Skype for Business (SfB).

SmartNode products are validated by TekVizion, a Microsoft-certified lab, in the SBC and enhanced gateway categories, and are forward compatible with Microsoft Teams.

Patton Cloud edge orchestration service makes it extra easy to activate, configure and manage the SmartNode-enabled connection with on-premise or hosted Skype for Business.

In addition to enabling enterprise transition to ALL-IP using SfB, Patton’s VoIP CPE products also support co-existing legacy telephony systems—during migration, or forever.

"Executives know effective communication with customers, partners, and employees is key to sustainable growth," said Robert R. Patton (Bobby), President and CEO.

“Still, countless organizations operate today using traditional Key System or TDM PBX voice communications. With validated interoperability with Skype for Business, Patton empowers those businesses to connect to the IP world, delivering increased mobility, enhanced teamwork, heightened customer engagement, and higher productivity," Mr. Patton said.

By installing SmartNode VoIP gateways and enterprise session border controllers (eSBCs), organizations can reap the cost-savings and productivity benefits of SfB UC and UCaaS solutions while preserving investments in working analog or digital PBX and fax equipment, phones, speakers, intercoms, and paging systems—and without sacrificing traditional PSTN connectivity.

Known as the world’s “most interoperable” VoIP CPE, SmartNode offers all the standard telephony interfaces, so companies can seamlessly interconnect their hybrid or ALL- IP networks, existing FXS/FXO POTS services, ISDN BRI/PRI lines, and otherwise incompatible SIP telephony systems to SfB.

Mr. Patton continues: “By providing universal access to the high-powered SfB unified communications and collaboration (UCC) platform, Patton provides increased mobility, enhanced teamwork, heightened customer engagement, and higher productivity for enterprises.”

To facilitate trouble-free installation, Patton has published a free SfB Configuration Guide for SmartNode Productsicon indicates PDF file.

In related news, as Microsoft opens its first data centers in Africa, Patton has appointed two new leaders to expand operations in EMEA.
