May 18, 2011 – RICHARDSON, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Taqua®, LLC, a leading supplier of next-generation wireline and wireless switching and backhaul solutions, today announced that IntelePeer™ has chosen Taqua’s T7000® Intelligent Switching System (T7000) for high-capacity peering applications.
IntelePeer provides on-demand, cloud-based communications services to service providers, contact centers and enterprises. These services provide high quality voice and multimodal communications to any phone or network-connected device. The company’s SuperRegistry™ directory, with more than 400 million telephone numbers and end point identifying addresses, enables an intelligent Media Peering Grid that directly transports over 20 billion minutes annually between wireless and wireline phones, and IP devices. After the deployment of Taqua’s T7000 in January, IntelePeer expanded its order commitment with Taqua for the purchase of multiple systems through the remainder of 2011.
“We selected the Taqua T7000 because its flexible switching capability has proven to be extremely cost-effective while delivering high session densities and CODEC diversity,” said Phillip Bronsdon, SVP of Engineering and Operations at IntelePeer, Inc. “While initially providing IP peering, the T7000 is capable of providing a variety of additional functionality in our network, and we look forward to working with Taqua to maximize the T7000’s capabilities.”
Taqua’s T7000 Intelligent Switching System is a high-density media gateway, Class 4, Class 5, and/or wireless media gateway and wireless media gateway controller in a single chassis. As a high-density media gateway, the Taqua T7000 can provide the necessary high capacity IP-IP and IP-TDM media gateway (MG) and media processing/server function (MRF). With a comprehensive set of fixed and mobile voice and video codecs and transcoding functionality, the T7000 enables a smooth evolution of the next generation IMS-based network to support real-time services over 4G/LTE with interworking capability with legacy networks. The flexibility of the T7000 architecture allows for per-channel allocation of each resource for transcoding or gateway on a per-session basis.
