Avantel Mexico Selects SmartNode VoIP Gateway Routers
Mexico’s Premier IP Carrier Deploys Patton SmartNode™ as Their
Chosen Voice-over-IP Gateway for Bundled Voice and Data Services
SmartNode™ Telephony-over-IP — Delivering the Promise of VoIP
OCTOBER 28, 2004: GAITHERSBURG, Maryland - Patton Electronics—an industry
leader in access, connectivity and VoIP—announces today that Avantel has selected
Patton’s SmartNode™ as the customer-premise VoIP solution for their PYME Plus IPbased telephone services targeting small and mid-sized enterprises.
Avantel, “The IP Company” (La Compañía IP), is Mexico’s premier communications
service and second-largest long-distance carrier, as well as providing local phone
service. Avantel’s new PYME Plus service package offers dedicated Internet access
bundled with local, long distance, and mobile-cellular minutes plus 800 phone
numbers—all for about 40% less than those combined services would typically cost.
Patton’s SmartNode™ Modular VoIP Access Router combines a Voice-over-IP
gateway and a secure QoS router in a single low-cost modular device. The powerful
combination enables Avantel to reduce operating costs while delivering the highquality integrated voice and data services their business customers need most—at a
price they can afford.
“Patton offered Avantel the key value proposition of SmartNode™—namely, the
ability to deploy services with a fully-integrated CPE solution that includes both the
Router and the VoIP Gateway” said Armando Morillo, Patton’s Sales Director for
Latin America.
“Patton plays well with others,” said Antonio Torre, Product Marketing Manager for
Avantel. “Avantel was looking for a reliable and responsive VoIP vendor. Patton’s
SmartNode is flexible and reasonably priced. It connects seamlessly with Avantel’s
network platforms and protocols. Plus, the support Patton has provided is one of the
best in the market—before, during and after the sale. Patton has proved to be a true
business partner, ready and able to adapt, quick to customize...making sure their
solutions work well in our network and for our customers.”

count it a privilege to launch this long-term partnership with such a quality-focused
service provider.”
“Patton is pleased,” Mr. Whittle continued, “to combine our advanced Voice-over-IP
technology with Avantel’s high-value services to deliver integrated voice and data
