  • Patton Trinity SmartNode (3.9.3 (June 2016))

[ Summary | Information | Links ]


Within the Swyx Technology Partner Programme (TPP) the  Patton Trinity SmartNode was successfully tested and hereby reaches the certification level certified.

This KB article describes all mandatory configuration steps that need to be performed to assure a flawless operation between a Patton Trinity SmartNode and a SwyxWare2015.


1. Certification test

The tests were executed between both a Patton Trinity SmartNode 4130 (BRI) and Trinity SmartNode 4170 (PRI)  and two SwyxWare installations in Master-Standby operation.


The following combinations were tested:

  • SwyxWare2015 R3, with Patton Trinity SmartNode4130, Firmware Trinity 3.9.3 (June 2016); test date: 10.06.2016
  • SwyxWare2015 R3, with Patton Trinity SmartNode4170Firmware Trinity 3.9.3 (June 2016); test date: 16.06.2016

1.1 Executed tests

Inbound and outbound calls with the above endpoints from and to PSTN / GSM

  • Signaling
  • CLIP
  • CLIR
  • CLIP No Screening
  • Long duration calls
  • Hold / Retrieve
  • Call toggeling
  • Transfer
  • Conferencing
  • Call forwarding internal/external
  • DTMF Signaling
  • T.38 negotiation and FAX transmission
  • CTI+

All testcases were completed sucessfully.

If a call through CTI+ is not accepted by the called party, a timeout occurs in both the Patton GW and the SwyxWare. This leads to the situation that the auxiliary call is not terminated automatically, but has to be terminated manually by the user on the controlled device. 

2. Start-up

The following steps are necessary for a start-up:

  • Creation of a SIP gateway trunk und SwyxWare user; configuration of SwyxWare locations if necessary
  • Preparation of the Patton Trinity SmartNode
  • Adjustment and installation of the Patton Trinity SmartNode configuration file

2.1. Preparation of SwyxWare

  1. Using the configuration assistant, create a new SIP Gateway Trunk group within the SwyxWare. Select the Trunk Group Profile "SwyxConnect" that fits to your PSTN connection.
  2. Create a new SIP Gateway Trunk for the newly created SIP Gateway Trunk Group.
  3. Configure "SIP-User-ID" and "SIP Username" with a value of your choice, use the same value for both items.
  4. Configure the SIP password.
  5. Configure the available range of external numbers.
  6. Activate all codecs.
  7. Configure the number of available channels.
  8. Set the local NetBIOS name as "Computername".

Afterwards, open the properties of the newly created SIP Gateway Trunk.

  1. In the tab "Encryption", set the encryption mode to "No Encryption".
