Patton to Present BODi rS, SmartNode 10K Product Families at Mobile World Congress
By Rory Lidstone, TMCnet Contributing Writer
Patton Electronics, a leader in the production of network access and connectivity products, is planning to showcase two of its technologies for wireless carriers at Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) (MWC) 2013, which will be held in Barcelona from February 25 to 28. Specifically, the company will present two newly launched product lines that enable fixed mobile convergence and cloud-based, value-added services for business, institutions, transportation and M2M applications.
The first of these product lines, BODi rS (Bandwidth-on-Demand Internet Routers), offers fast Internet connectivity over bonded multi-link 3G, 4G and VSAT, while also combining WAN load balancing with VPN bonding for speed and reliability comparable to MPLS. Products in the BODi rS family are capable of supporting up to seven 3G/4G/LTE. Wi-Fi/WiMAX (News - Alert) or VSAT uplinks for cost-effective, on-demand bandwidth aggregation for enterprises of all sizes and levels of mobility.
For example, banks, brokerages, hotels, hospitals, ships, busses, power plants and construction sites can use the one-box BODi solution to create a local Wi-Fi mesh with a firewall, encryption and multi-WAN routing, while businesses can use BODi to add wireless Internet speed at will.
“With BODi, Patton (News - Alert) brings a unique mobile broadband experience to market,” said Brian Lawlor, product manager. “These powerful fixed-mobile routers combine up to seven wired and wireless broadband modems–plus a WiFi (News - Alert) hotspot and WiFi WAN — all in a single unit.”
The second product line to be featured at MWC is the SmartNode 10K family of TDM + VoIP media gateways. These gateways facilitate the transition to new-generation converged IP architecture at a rate suitable for carriers. Furthermore, these commercial-grade SN10K gateways can connect traditional SS7 edge, core and peer zones with expanding MEGACO and SIP networks, by operating legacy TDM POTS/ISDN and advanced NGN VoIP protocols simultaneously.
“Transitioning to converged IP is no sprint,” said Joshua Puckett, SmartNode product manager. “It’s a long run. By supporting TDM, IP, and hybrid architectures simultaneously, SmartNode 10K gateways facilitate any long-term migration plan. The integrated SS7 stack ensures interoperability with global carrier networks. But its lynchpin is redundancy. N+1 and 1+1 options enable true ‘five-nines’ reliability.”
