Works well. Relatively easy to set up.
Works just OK
I purchased this product because of the new Microsoft Lync certification. Configuration is tough, nearly impossible if you try to follow the enclosed manual.
Documentation for use with Lync is nearly non existent, it will require communication with Patton support for configuration.
Dropped calls have been an issue, but this may still be part of the configuration issues, trying to get it to work with analogue lines provided by a cable service.
The price entry may move to more stars once it is actually proven to work well.
Works great - really tough to configure
I purchased this to gateway 4 POTS lines to a 3CX, Windows based soft-PBX I implemented. 3CX "recommends" this particular product and model, and that was the main reason I purchased it. With that being said, the "auto configure" feature built into 3CX to get this gateway to work with it really didn't get the job done. From there, it was a lot of trial-and-error with many settings before I got it working reliably. From that time, it has been great, working almost all the time (not 100%, but close enough), but just make sure you are confident with configuring gateways before getting this, as it is NOT very intuitive.
