Taqua Inc. and BroadSoft Inc. have partnered to provide Class 5 switch-replacement and advanced IP services to service providers in the United States and Canada.
Taqua, which has been working with BroadSoft to better integrate each others products, will bundle and resell the BroadSoft BroadWorks VoIP application platform to ILECs, MSOs and other CLECs. The combined products can be deployed using the Taqua 7000 (T7000) interfaces, such as GR303, TR08, CAS, PRI or POTS Lines under control of BroadWorks through SIP, as determined by the operator on a per-port basis. The products also can be deployed with the T7000 acting as an intelligent network gateway for BroadWorks.
Carriers of any size can combine the T7000 end-office switching system solution with BroadSofts advanced Hosted PBX/IP Centrex, Mobile PBX and Residential Broadband applications.
By bundling BroadSofts BroadWorks with our next-generation central-office switching solution, service providers of any size can now cost effectively deploy a Class 5 softswitch with the latest advanced services, and deliver all services to either traditional telephones or IP endpoints, said Scott Weidenfeller, chief marketing officer at Taqua.
