)-Inalp Networks, creator of the SmartNode brand of VoIP
technology solutions, announced today that it’s fully released its SmartNode Smart-Digital Telephone Adapter (S- DTA).
Described as the only two-call ISDN
VoIP CPE on the market that runs carrier-grade software, Patton’s SmartWare, the S-DTA, should be viewed as an option for double and triple-pay service providers seeking an ISDN termination device, company officials say.
Patton says that with touchless auto-provisioning and reliability in numerous carrier deployments, SmartWare offers interoperability with all major-brand softswitches and IP-PBXs.
Designed for deployment in ISDN small offices, branch offices, and homes, the device supports two concurrent voice or T.38 fax calls, Super G3 and V.34 capable, company officials say.
Officials say the S-DTA connects up to 8 ISDN terminals over the S-bus
to a service provider or private VoIP network.
Service providers also can use the S-DTA to roll out Internet-telephony, double-play, and triple-play services in the ISDN residential market, company officials say. Enterprises and integrators also can use the S-DTA to extend corporate PBX
services to remote and home-office workers, they say.
Since the device connects to the S bus in a subscriber’s home or office, officials say, subscribers can enjoy the “cost-saving benefits of VoIP technology” using their existing ISDN terminals.
According to the company, features such as number plan adaptation and inter-protocol mapping ensure that users can communicate in way that they’re accustomed to.
“This market demands a high standard of quality,” said John Wu, product manager at Patton-Inalp Networks. “ISDN users are extremely picky. With the S-DTA, the only thing ISDN callers will miss is the big phone bill.”
