communications to small-office and home-office (SoHo) users in remote

For Immediate Release

GAITHERSBURG, Maryland: Patton -- a leader in network access and
connectivity -- announced today they will unveil two new members of
their innovative SmartNode(TM) family of VoIP solutions at CeBIT 2005

Patton has specially designed the two new mid-range VoIP routers to
deliver converged voice-and-data communications to small-office and
home-office (SoHo) users in remote locations. The model SN4020 SoHo
solution serves users in standard analog-telephony environments while
the model SN4552 SoHo VoIP solution targets ISDN users.

Patton will demonstrate their new SmartNode solutions at their CeBIT
booth located in Hall 13, Stand A58 at the Hanover, Germany show
during 10-16 March 2005.

SmartLink(TM) 4020 Series Analog SoHo VoIP Router -- Available in
early Q2 2005, Patton's new SmartLink 4020 Series offers SoHo users an
affordable connection to the cost-saving world of Internet voice. Like
the business-class members of the SmartNode family, Patton's new
SN4020 VoIP solution for the SoHo market integrates a VoIP gateway
with full-featured IP-routing capabilities to deliver simplified,
converged voice-and-data network communications. Available in single
(SN4021) or dual (SN4022) FXS port configurations, the SmartNode
router connects to any standard analog phone, fax machine, or PBX.

SmartNode 4552 ISDN SoHo VoIP Router -- Available immediately,
Patton's new SmartNode 4552 ISDN VoIP Router offers a low-cost CPE
solution that delivers converged BRI/So and LAN-to-WAN data-access
service to SoHo users over DSL, fiber, cable, the Internet, or any
broadband network.

Providers -- Deployed at the customer premise, the SN4552 will enable
Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs) and Internet Telephony
Service Providers (ITSPs) to grab their share of the ISDN
service-delivery market. With the SN4552, providers can roll out
BRI/So services bundled with data access for LAN users over any
broadband delivery system (including cable, fiber, and DSL). The
SN4552 is strategically priced, so VoIP providers can deliver bundled
voice-and-data services at rates that undercut traditional ISDN
service by about 30% ($20 versus $30/month for example).

SoHo and SMEs -- For small-to-mid-sized enterprises (SMEs), as well as
remote and home-office users, the SN4552 delivers high-quality,
low-cost BRI voice-over-broadband service that is tightly integrated
with LAN-to-WAN data-access. The SN4552 uses Patton's SmartWare(TM)
VoIP technology to connect two BRI/So users to a remote PBX over

The affordable SN4552 integrated access device includes a built-in
4-port auto-sensing fast-Ethernet switch for convenient data
connections. The SN4552 also provides a fallback connection to the
local PSTN for alternate call-routing during IP-network outages, as
well as a lifeline relay to the PSTN for guaranteed ISDN service in
the event of a local power failure.

"ISDN providers have proved their commitment to Patton by deploying
thousands of SmartNode ports in bundled service offerings during the
past year," said Ramon Felder, SmartNode Product Manager located in
Bern, Switzerland. "Patton is pleased to reward that vote of
confidence by offering a new solution that does even more-at a lower

"SmartNode VoIP solutions are 'more than just talk' because they
actually work in the real world," said Burton A. Patton, Patton's
Executive Vice President. "Because Patton's SmartNode technology is
progressive, proven and mature, service providers around the world are
choosing SmartNode CPE solutions as they roll out converged voice and
data services to their subscribers."

SmartNode stands out from other VoIP solutions because Patton's
DownStreamQoS(TM) delivers best-possible voice quality while their
SessionRouter(TM) call-routing software is the industry's most
flexible, enabling SmartNode to integrate smoothly into virtually any
telephony system's existing numbering plan.

Visit Patton at CeBIT 2005 in Hall 13, Stand A58, during 10-16 March
in Hannover, Germany.
