GAITHERSBURG, MD : Patton Electronics ( has earned yet another accolade on the heels of last week's Product of the Year announcement.

Christina Smith includes Patton Gateways on her list of top ten VoIP products for 2012 in her December 27 posting on VoIP Insider—the blog for the online store

VoIP Insider's ten-item list, which includes two Cisco products, cites Patton gateways as product number five. Also included are such non-gateway VoIP products as phones and PBXs, from Panasonic, Polycom, and Elastix.

As Senior Product Manager for VoIP Supply, Smith notes that many VoIP gateway suppliers charge as much (or more) as the cost of the product for their supplemental customer support packages.

Patton, on the other hand, provides free lifetime technical support during business hours for every product sold—including free downloadable software upgrades for the life of the product.

"What sets them apart," Christina Smith writes, "is customer service and support. Patton offers FREE pre and post sales support and their customer service is second to none."

Unique within the electronic-communications industry, Patton’s free-support proposition drives down total cost of ownership (TCO), delivering significant competitive advantage for Patton channel partners and end customers.

"For a lower TCO, businesses are turning to Patton Gateways more and more," Smith observes.

Patton made news for their technical support just a few months ago as the company announced new premium support services—platinum-level Premium Support and platinum-plus Premium 24/7 Support—during November 2012.

Last week, Patton announced the SmartNode™ 4670 VoIP IAD with ADSL Interface won the INTERNET TELEPHONY 2012 Product of the Year, sustaining the brand’s eight-year winning streak.

A SmartNode product has earned the INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year award every year since 2005. Since market introduction in the year 2000, SmartNode has collected a dozen major industry awards.
