The virtual SmartNode (vSN) family of Virtual CPE products simplifies, accelerates, and lowers costs for SIP–trunk, hosted–PBX, SDN, IP–Access and VPN service deployments
SmartNode VoIPâ¦ More than Just Talk!
GAITHERSBURG, Md., April 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND: Patton Electronicsâa time–tested, brick–and–mortar manufacturer of IP network equipmentâhas officially released its virtual SmartNode (vSN) line of virtualized network function (VNF) software CPE products, the company announced today.
The SmartNode virtual CPE offering for hypervisor implementation streamlines SD–WAN service deployment by providing a set of cloud–native software CPE products for download and deployment with bare metal on–premise hardwareâa.k.a. universal CPE (uCPE).
Unlike many competing virtual CPE products the Patton vSN puts no limit on the number of registered users or sessions. Call capacity is easily scaled up or down as needed using a floating license model that automatically distributes licenses from the Cloud toÂ SDN hypervisors wherever they are located.
Pattonâs announcement comes in the wake of an anticipatedÂ 45.4% compound annual growth rate (CAGR)Â in theÂ virtual CPE market that could reach $16.4 billion in 2022, according to aÂ recent IDC forecast.
Offering all theÂ benefits and none ofÂ theÂ performanceÂ limitations of a shrink–wrapped CPE device, the vSN can be remotely provisioned, configured, managed, and monitored as a virtual machine (VM) using the Patton Cloud.
Thanks to simplified operation, reduced CapEx and OpEx, and faster service delivery, virtual CPEs are key drivers of the growing network function virtualization (NFV) deployment trend, according to techtarget.
Currently offered SmartNode NFV use cases include:
- VPN server
- IPv6–to–IPv4 network gateway
- IP access router
- Enterprise session border controller (eSBC) for hosted PBX or SIP trunk applications
With a software download from the cloud, hypervisor virtual machines may be repurposed for any of Pattonâs available VNF options as required by the network administration.
