The latest award is in recognition of the innovation for Patton’s IP-based, voice-and-data network implemented in northern Italy for the Modena regional government for disaster-recovery capabilities in the wake of two severe earthquakes (5.9 on the Richter scale).
The details of the solution for Modena are contained in a free four-page case study of the award-winning solution. It highlights how Patton teamed with local business partner ATS Group Spa to design and implement a more reliable and resilient public network in the earthquake-prone area.
ATS Business Development Manager, Stefano Carlini, notes that, “We chose the Patton SmartNode SN4940 in order to guarantee maximum reliability—which in today’s market, professional VoIP systems absolutely must offer. Whenever we plan and deploy UC solutions, the extensive range of high-quality SmartNode™ models is a key factor in our customers’ strategic decisions."
For Mr. Carlini, the project also involved a personal dimension, “As a resident of Mirandola I have personally experienced the events of the earthquake and its consequences. It is rewarding to know that we contributed to the restoration of our territory."
Rich Tehrani (News - Alert), CEO of TMC, said, “It gives me great pleasure to present our 2013 Unified Communications Excellence Award to Patton for its innovative SmartNode VoIP solutions. The Patton team exhibits a proven commitment to addressing real needs in the marketplace. Such excellence is inspiring to see. I look forward to many future innovations from Patton.”
