Patton’s Virtual SmartNode (vSN) delivers the features you need for advanced voice network applications that need to be easily scaled up and down. At the same time, it eliminates hardware limitations which are required for the performance of the application.
The Virtual SmartNode provides the comprehensive feature set needed for you as an enterprise or service provider looking to virtualize your infrastructure.
Secure your VoIP infrastructure by encrypting signaling streams using the Virtual SmartNode.
DoS prevention, trust peer, toll fraud prevention, stateful firewall QoS, voice quality assessment and monitoring and much more, is part of the virtualized Patton SmartNode* as well as IP routing, including IPv4 and IPv6 networking features.
SmartNodes are the leading and field proven CPEs running Patton Proprietary OS. The same, feature rich software used on the purpose build hardware devices, can also be used in virtual environments for a high level of scalability and service availability.
The Virtual SmartNode is designed to run in virtualized enterprise networks, telephony service provider datacenters, cloud provider infrastructure, etc. Addressing varying call capacity needs from clients can easily be done, scaling up and down the required licenses on the virtual SmartNode using a floating license model through the Patton Cloud. The Patton Cloud automatically distributes the obtained licenses to where they are needed (vSN and other Patton devices).
This enables you to easily scale up/down SBC services on Virtual SmartNodes but also on regular SmartNode devices.
