Patton (News - Alert) Electronics has continued to make strides in the global business and carrier-class network access, connectivity, VoIP and triple-play equipment market as of late, and has recently added to its network offerings, according to the company.
The Maryland-based company recently released its OnSite Series Model OS1052. The Dual STM-1 trunks with 8 to 50 T1/E1 and 2 to18 Ethernet client ports is designed to deliver flexible and modular multiservice solutions for 2G/3G backhaul, fixed-line networks, and private and utility networks, according to the company.
“The advanced modular design of the Patton OnSite OS1052 provides unequaled flexibility in its class in terms of service offerings, capacity and functional upgrades,” notes Burton Patton, executive vice president of Patton Electronics.
The model’s two expansion module slots allow increasing system capacity beyond the initial base configuration. Additional ports and features only require simple insertion of one of the many available types of TDM and packet data modules.
In addition, the OS1052 incorporates next-generation SDH features such as virtual concatenation (VCAT), link capacity adjustment scheme (LCAS) and generic framing procedure (GFP) for efficient packet data transport.
Patton says the he platform also incorporates Layer 2 features such as VLAN tagging, rate limiting and statistical multiplexing with multi-level QoS control. The OS1052 is easily configured and managed through a simple Web-based GUI interface or the scalable Patton OnSight NMS.
As TMCnet previously reported, Patton moved farther into the space with its acquisition of all rights to the OnSite Systems (News - Alert) S10 microMSPP products and technology back in December.
The acquisition broadened Patton's edge-access multi-service offering for service providers, carriers, and mobile operators. Along with advance networking, integrated QoS, and TDM switching capabilities the Patton OnSite S10 provides seamless IP/Ethernet service migration while interfacing to any SONET/SDH transport network.
Burt Patton said at the time the company plans to continue serving customer TDM and IP requirements as they evolve and saw the acquisition as a way to “strengthen our position as a full-service network-access equipment provider by adding metro-optical products and solutions. The acquisition expands Patton's presence among carriers, cable MSOs, and mobile operators as their needs converge toward packet-based transport and delivery of data, voice and video."
The OnSite Systems deliver profitable triple-play services with 2G infrastructures today while transitioning to 3G all-IP networking. With OnSite users can simultaneously operate and seamlessly switch between classic TDM and emerging packet-based transport facilities while delivering converged multimedia (data, voice and video) services to a company’s subscribers.Tim Gray is a Web Editor for TMCnet, covering news in the IP communications, call center and customer relationship management industries.
