• Patton VoIP SmartNode Routers
Over and against a simple VoIP gateway, another benefit with a VoIP router is this: a VoIP router can provide PSTN fallback with voice-and-data survivability for business continuity in the event of an Internet or IP network failure. While most networks today employ session initiation protocol (SIP) for voice encoding, the earlier standard, H.323 is still in use. The best high-quality VoIP routers are able to support both protocols, both of which are encapsulated in the data payload of the real-time protocol (RTP) protocol data unit (PDU). Another benefit of the VoIP router is the capability to provide quality of service (QoS) mechanisms, especially in the downstream path. For details on this feature, see Addressing QoS Beyond the Provider Network.


Typical VoIP Router Applications
VoIP router can be used to address many different challenges when implementing an IP-based voice system. Two of the most common use cases are described below.

  • LAN/WAN QoS
