BroadSoft, Taqua team to supply IP, VoIP systems
Taqua  and VoIP software provider BroadSoft  are partnering to help telcos in the U.S. and Canada replace their Class 5 switches with a combination of the former’s switch technology and the latter’s VoIP software. The same system can be used by MSOs to initiate VoIP services.
Carriers of any size can now save deployment and operational costs while delivering world-class services by combining the T7000 end-office switching system solution with BroadSoft's advanced Hosted PBX/IP Centrex, Mobile PBX and Residential Broadband applications, the two say.
The combined products can be deployed using the Taqua 7000 interfaces, such as GR303, TR08, CAS, PRI or POTS lines, under control of BroadWorks through Session Initiated Protocol (SIP), as determined by the operator on a per port basis. The products can also be deployed with the T7000 acting as an Intelligent Network Gateway for BroadWorks.
