CHICAGO - May 4, 2015 - PRLog -- CHICAGO, ILLINOIS:  This week at Microsoft Ignite, Patton Electronics (—US-manufacturer of award-winning SmartNode™ VoIP solutions, CopperLink™ Ethernet Extenders, and BODI rS™ High Availability Fixed & Mobile Internet Routers—will join Bressner Technology to showcase the streamlined UCBox Express solution set that finally makes the Microsoft  Lync unified communications system accessible and affordable for small to medium businesses (SMBs).

“Everybody thought smaller companies would never have the money or know-how to install and operate Lync,” said Burton A. Patton, Executive Vice President at Patton. “Well it looks like ‘everybody’ was wrong. Working together as business and technology partners, Patton and Bressner have come up with a way to make Unified Communications from Microsoft affordable and manageable for the little guys.”

The Patton-Bressner solution offers simplified, one-hour installation of the Lync Unified Communications system on a single hardware platform that includes a Patton SmartNode gateway already built in: Patton’s SmartNode Open Gateway Appliance (SNOGA).

“Patton provides the ultimate hardware platform we needed to make this dream a reality,” said Josef Bressner, Managing Director at Bressner Technology. “As a quad-core appliance with an extremely reliable and highly-flexible, factory-integrated VoIP Gateway Router, the SNOGA delivers the ideal system environment for delivering Microsoft UCC services.”

Not only is the UCBox system quick and easy for a small-company’s IT staff to set up, but Bressner has added the FonComfort set of key  call-handling features to cover some important things Microsoft left out.

Bressner’s FonComfort telephony add-on makes the overall UC system much friendlier for SMB users to work with.

The Microsoft Ignite event takes place May 4-8, 2015 at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, Illinois. Event attendees can meet Patton and Bressner together in booth 417.
