Combined BroadSoft, Acme Packet and Taqua Solution Experiencing Strong Momentum in the Tier 2/3 Service Provider Market

Taqua®, LLC, a leading supplier of next-generation switching systems and applications, today at SUPERCOMM 2009 announced that six more companies have chosen to deploy TaquaWorks™, an integrated solution that tightly combines products from Acme Packet®, BroadSoft®, and Taqua.

The TaquaWorks solution was chosen by Reedsburg Utility, Farmers Mutual Telephone Company, B2B2C, Hunt Telecom, and Thomasville Utilities to deliver advanced telecommunications services to their diverse subscriber bases that include residential and business customers.

TaquaWorks is a tightly integrated solution that enables service providers to replace wireline and wireless switches and deploy converged, enhanced applications with the highest network security possible. The Taqua 7000™ (T7000) next generation wireline and wireless switching system allows service providers to replace Class 4/5 and wireless switching systems and deliver advanced services over TDM and IP networks, as well as wireless GSM/CDMA, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks. BroadSoft’s BroadWorks® suite of advanced hosted Unified Communications, mobile PBX, business trunking and residential services are tightly coupled with the T7000 to deliver the world’s most advanced subscriber services to carriers of all sizes. By integrating Acme Packet’s session border control (SBC), the TaquaWorks solution enhances network security for service providers by controlling the kinds of calls that can be placed through their IP networks. The SBC also delivers increased interoperability and service reliability by fixing or modifying protocols and protocol syntax to overcome issues that firewalls or other devices may cause across the IP network.

“It’s been almost two years since we launched the TaquaWorks solution and it has been received very well by Tier 2/3 carriers in North America and we are now selling, implementing and supporting multiple new TaquaWorks solutions every month,” said Scott Weidenfeller, chief marketing officer at Taqua, LLC. “Our strategic relationship with BroadSoft and Acme Packet and the resulting solution TaquaWorks has been a great success. Leveraging the world’s leading applications and SBC technology into Taqua’s wireline and wireless switching solutions, Taqua enables carriers of any size and type the ability to safely and securely deploy the same advanced services that the largest carriers in the world are deploying.”
