UC For Hotels, MTU/MDU Or Campus Environments With Analog Phones (Part II)

28 Oct 2020 by Patton Electronics

In PART I of this article we addressed the motivation question: Why would an organization switch to IP Telephony when it owns a plethora of bought-and-paid-for analog phones—and a traditional PBX—that all work just fine?

Now, we will tackle the second question posed in that article: How can you take advantage of the cost savings and increased productivity the IP revolution offers, without ripping out and replacing all your analog handsets?

The solution is simple: use a VoIP gateway!

For large-scale phone systems, a high-density gateway is required. A VoIP gateway provides FXS ports for connecting to the analog handsets. The gateway converts each local analog phone circuit into a SIP data stream (VoIP call). The VoIP calls can be routed from the gateway’s Ethernet port to a local IP-PBX, or a hosted PBX and delivered over a SIP trunk to the internet telephony service provider (ITSP).

When it comes to high-density (lots of phone lines) analog VoIP gateways, customers are usually stuck with either stacking multiple boxes or buying expensive units with way more ports than they actually need.

So, Patton has developed the industry’s most flexible high-density VoIP gateway: the new SmartNode SN4740 High-Density Analog Gateway Series.
