TaquaWorks to replace their Nortel, Siemens, and Coppercom Class 5 switching systems
Taqua, a supplier of switching systems, and BroadSoft, a provider of VoIP application software, have announced that three more North American independent local exchange carriers have chosen TaquaWorks to replace their Nortel, Siemens, and Coppercom Class 5 switching systems and enable new, enhanced applications using IP and TDM protocols.
According to Taqua, TaquaWorks next-generation switching system is chosen by Pine Belt Telephone, Taylor Telephone, and Cozad Telephone.
TaquaWorks is an integrated combination of Taqua’s North American Class 5 replacement platform and BroadSoft’s advanced services platform. Taqua claims that by utilizing the Taqua 7000 (T7000) next-generation wireline and wireless switching system, service providers of any size can replace Class 4/5 and wireless switching systems and deliver advanced services over TDM and IP networks, and wireless GSM/CDMA, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks.
BroadSoft’s BroadWorks suite of advanced hosted unified communications, Mobile PBX and residential/enterprise broadband applications are coupled with the T7000 to deliver advanced subscriber services to carriers of all sizes.
Scott Weidenfeller, chief marketing officer of Taqua, said: These three companies are perfect examples of Taqua’s target market focus – the small to mid-sized North American service provider – and how the flexible nature of our solution can be utilized. All three companies need reliable, next-generation wireline switch replacements that can provide an advanced set of subscriber applications in the most cost effective manner.
