For good reason: Patton’s new open gateway platform enables telecom software companies and product developers to build right-sized, purpose-built enterprise-communication products and solutions directly on Patton’s famous SmartNode VoIP Gateways.
Now, anyone in the Industry can partner with Patton to realize unified-communications (UC) or business phone systems for the specialized needs of small-to-medium businesses (SMBs).
Because SmartNode offers all the traditional TDM interfaces—including analog FXS and FXO, ISDN BRI and PRI, T1 and E1—the SNOGA is an ideal platform for IP-based solutions that integrate legacy devices (PBX, phones, fax), TDM trunks, or SIP-trunks with PSTN fallback and survivability.
“It is an honor to be recognized as a market force with our ninth Internet Telephony product of the year award,” said Burton A. Patton, Executive Vice President of Patton.
As the first in the IP-telephony industry to create such a product, Patton is currently offering free SNOGA demo units for proof-of-concept testing to qualifying partners.
Mr. Patton continued, “Our open gateway product creates new partnering opportunities for industry peers who are focused on creating customized software applications for IP telephony.”
Supporting 2 to 128 concurrent SIP to TDM voice or fax calls, the SNOGA hardware platform can host such network-appliance applications as on-premise UC, IP-PBX, Interactive Voice Response (IVR), call recording, call-accounting, enterprise session border controller (E-SBC), vertical-market adaptations of Asterisk, and more.
“The SNOGA is the ideal platform for rapid creation of standard business-communications products that are compact, integrated and affordable,”
The SNOGA can support systems based on any operating system, including Linux and Windows.
“It gives me great pleasure to recognize Patton with a 2015 Product of the Year Award for its latest innovation,”
