Taqua declares its independence
Spinning off completely from former parent GenBand , Taqua  has completed a management buy-out and has renewed its focus on next-generation end-office switching solutions for wireline, cable and wireless service providers.
Taqua was established in 1998, was acquired by Tekelec in 2004, and purchased shortly thereafter by GenBand.
The Taqua T7000 Switching System (T7000) is based on a patented “switch-on-a-card” design, in which all the function of a Class 5 switch or IP gateway are performed on a single circuit pack.
Taqua said its market will once again be carriers needing to migrate from legacy circuit-switched exchanges, especially those needing to establish new services such as triple play, cable telephony, enhanced VoIP and others.
The company said its T7000 can also be configured as an intelligent gateway within the carrier’s network for solutions that require both the low cost and feature performance of a packet gateway coupled with up to full call processing intelligence.
