Maryland-based Patton is the creator of SmartNode
VoIP technology. The company provides extensive services in the Ethernet Extenders space with business-class network access, connectivity and VoIP equipment.
The timing of the training programs comes just as the Ethernet switch market is expected to see significant growth over the next few years.

that increasing traffic, including video-based communications, will push the Ethernet market upward of $32 billion globally in 2013.
