Swisscom has selected the SmartNode 5300 as the customer- premise enterprise session border controller (E-SBC) for its new Business Connect IP-based phone service for small- to-medium enterprises (SMEs).
The Swisscom Business Connect service delivers the cost savings of flat-rate SIP Telephonyincluding free intra- office callingwhile integrating a customer's existing IP PBX with a Swisscom SIP trunk and virtual switchboard.
Ideal for carrier-providers that offer SIP-trunking services for SMEs, Patton's SmartNode 5300 Enterprise Session Border Router (ESBR) comes with an auto- provisioning solution that eliminates truck rolls, as detailed in Patton's recently published white paper.
Using Patton's cloud-based SmartNode Redirection Service to request, download, and install a customized configuration file for the Swisscom service, the SN5300 automatically activates the SIP trunk when powered up on the customer premise.
SmartNode Split Management Domain protects the Swisscom WAN-facing configuration from any (perhaps inadvertent) subscriber meddling while protecting the customer's LAN- facing configuration against WAN intrusion.
The SmartNode installation wizard makes it quick and easy for subscribers to set up the LAN side of the connection.
