Finding the perfectly specialized VoIP product or solution is certainly nothing of an easy task, and with the VoIP and unified communications (UC) services estimated to boom in the near future, you can’t shrug off the vitality of finding the most reliable and renowned VoIP products on the market.
VoIP and UC will grow so much, in fact, that Infonetics (News - Alert) Research is reporting that by 2016, hosted VoIP and UC services are predicted to be the heaviest drivers of business. Still don’t believe me? Consider then the fact that back in 2009, a survey revealed that VoIP services were topping the list of industries that were defying the recession – which seemed to be at its harshest. Furthermore, the article, reported by EWeek, reports that VoIP was going so strong amidst hard economic times that it topped IBISWorld’s top 10 list of industries expected to have the largest revenue growth that year.
What this means today is that VoIP is not only still a solid industry, but stronger than ever. Patton Electronics, a family-owned and operated business based in Gaithersburg, Maryland, has everything it takes to cover all of the bases – literally. Although headquartered in the states, the company boasts offices located all over the world, and currently maintains a strong global presence by doing business in over 120 countries.
Patton (News - Alert) offers robust Ethernet Extension solutions to reach beyond typical Ethernet limitations. Over the summer, the company rolled out its all new U.S.-manufactured CopperLink CL1314R Ruggedized Ethernet Extender and CL1314MDE Multi-drop Ethernet Extender and Repeater, which work to simplify plug-and-play installation with standard RJ45 connectors and are ideal for serial-to-IP migration. The CopperLink CL1314 series also converts copper-based RS-232, RS-485 or RS-422 data transmission circuits to Ethernet IP – all without needing to install new Ethernet wiring.
Patton also takes pride in its esteemed line of VoIP Gateways, as well as its latest achievement of becoming Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync-certified with its SmartNode VoIP Gateways. When it comes to leveraging your existing non-compatible telephony equipment, Patton comes into play to offer a direct and seamless transition to using Microsoft Lync. By installing Patton’s SmartNode VoIP Gateway – such as the SmartNode 4660 Gateway Router, for instance – you are immediately enabled to enjoy the added benefits of a software-based IP-PBX (News - Alert) – all while continuing to use your trusted PSTN line or phone equipment, if desired.
Even more, Patton just revealed its new “futurized” generation of IPv6-ready SmartNode SIP-trunking Media Gateways for enterprises and carrier-providers, which serves as a highly scalable and survivable solution that is protected against obsolescence when IPv6 goes global. Ultimately, this new series of SmartNode SIP-trunking Media Gateways boast all of the value and rich features users need, but at a much more convenient cost.
Perhaps you’re more interested in a solution which will work to automatically share Internet traffic across wired, wireless or satellite links. If you’re looking for a solution touting ultimate flexibility for increased productivity, then consider Patton’s BODi product line. For example, the company’s BODi rS BD004 Bandwidth-on-Demand Bonding Router increases users’ stability, reliability and maximizes use of all bandwidth. By also being able to scale bandwidth on-the-go or add or remove connections accordingly, users will find that higher priority is given to lower cost links when demand allows, ultimately minimizing costs while maintaining the strong reliability that scales as users need.
When it comes to finding the right solution for your unique business needs, consider Patton Electronics, whose sterling reputation for specialized customer attention, detail-orientation and reliable support will leave you truly satisfied.
