Cloud-Smart VoIP Appliance Clears Obstacles to ALL-IP
Electronics-US manufacturer of UC, cloud, and IoT enabling solutions
for carrier, enterprise and industrial networks-is now shipping a
new line of cost-effective, high-performance SmartNode enterprise
session border controllers (eSBC) that offer optional two to eight
built-in analog telephony interfaces.
eSBC is a new thing. This new VoIP CPE series is designed for
small-offices that need to integrate POTS trunks or legacy FXS end
points into ALL-IP and cloud-based communication systems, including
on-premise and hosted unified communications (UC).
"Dumb analog telephony adapters-known as ATAs-are going obsolete," said
Burton A. Patton (News - Alert), EVP. "Companies that want to connect existing voice
and fax devices need a much smarter CPE."
Most SBCs are designed to support SIP-to-SIP communication only-with
little or no consideration given to legacy device connectivity, network
survivability, security or QoS. TDM-to-IP telephony is typically handled
by an ATA. That approach means your small office is going to need at
least two devices-in some cases five!-to implement an All-IP
These products are much richer.
They deliver secure, converged voice and data with up to 8 integrated
FXS ports. The devices also include a stateful firewall with secure
TLS/SRTP encryption for signaling and voice-plus configurable mechanisms
for preventing toll fraud and denial of service (DoS) attacks.
With a full suite of failover and load-balancing mechanisms for TDM and
LTE (News - Alert) survivability, the units ensure business continuity.
If that weren't enough, an embedded PacketSmart probe provides such
QoS/QoE performance metrics as Packet Loss, Jitter, MoS and more.
Even better news: a standard SmartNode
4141 VoIP gateway can be transformed into a rich-featured
multi-functional eSBC appliance by easy activation of license keys.
A carrier-grade dual image feature-rarely found in low-port-count
CPE-offers fallback/recovery capability for system-wide software
upgrades. Patton offers the feature to service providers at no

Extender kits with outdoor enclosures that can extend 10/100
Ethernet and up to 15 Watts of 802.3af (or legacy) PoE up to 3,300 feet
