Mexico’s VoIP Market Expands as Patton and Neocenter Join Forces

Patton signs Mexico-based Neocenter as Value-Added Distributor for Patton’s US-manufactured SmartNode™ VoIP equipment in the rapidly expanding Americas convergence market

GAITHERSBURG, MD--()--Patton—the leader in business and carrier-class network access, connectivity, VoIP and mobile video-surveillance equipment—announces a strategic partnership with Neocenter.

Culminating several months of strategic planning, Patton has signed Mexico-based Neocenter as Value-Added Distributor (VAD) for Patton’s US-manufactured IP networking equipment.

The Patton-Neocenter partnership is particularly focused on driving accelerated adoption of the award-winning SmartNode™ line of VoIP gateways, routers, IADs and SBCs in the rapidly expanding Americas convergence market.

Today’s announcement follows the recent report of Q3 subscriber growth for Megacable’s VoIP services, while Fox Sports announced a new all-IP deployment in Mexico City with VoIP links to branch-offices in Mexico, California, and Argentina earlier this month.

“The timing is perfect,” said Ernesto Casas, Patton's Regional Director for Latin America and the Caribbean. “VoIP technology has reached maturity. Five years ago it was still an experimental technology, but today’s Voice-over-IP deployments provide a stable communications infrastructure. Beyond reducing costs, converged-IP applications improve productivity while opening new ways to communicate and conduct daily life.”

A noteworthy conference speaker, Mr. Casas recently presented Thursday’s keynote message "Beyond a Simple Gateway: Real Life Solutions,” at the ElastixWorld conference in Quito, Ecuador.

“We are very pleased to provide the power and quality of SmartNode™ equipment to our customers,” said Alejandro Apan, CEO at Neocenter. “Today’s converged applications demand high intelligence from the network edge.”

“SmartNode™ is an apt name for Patton’s convergence solutions,” Mr. Apan further explains. “A simple gateway is not enough to implement complex business rules, deliver survivability, provide any-to-any interconnection, and efficiently utilize underlying infrastructure—all while processing and transporting converged voice, data and video. Such advanced functionality requires a very smart device!”

“Neocenter emerged as a clear leader in Mexico as I conducted my research,” Casas reflects. “Having scoured the market for months, I discovered Alejandro’s team of local experts. Neocenter distributes not just high-quality devices, but intelligence, knowledge and know-how. Neocenter supports their downstream reseller and integrator partners with valuable business tools that accelerate learning and reduce time to market.”

Watch for future announcements from the Patton-Neocenter partnership about additional programs, incentives and tools.
