Richardson, TX SEPTEMBER 2, 2014. Taqua®, LLC, a leading supplier of mobile and fixed IP convergence systems, applications, and services announced today that Hays, Kansas-based Nex-Tech Wireless has selected Taqua’s Virtual Mobile Core (VMC) as the centerpiece for deploying a number of mobile VoIP services including small cells, Wi-Fi Calling, and VoLTE.
Nex-Tech Wireless, which provides 3G and 4G wireless services to central and western Kansas and Eastern Colorado, has selected Taqua and its Virtual Mobile Core (VMC) as the cornerstone of Nex-Tech Wireless’ next-generation core network. The Taqua VMC is a converged IP mobile core designed to enable a variety of new IP-based voice and messaging services including small cells, VoWi-Fi, and VoLTE. In addition to enabling multiple services from a single product, the VMC has the added advantage of being deployed in pre-IMS or IMS networks as well as being optionally deployed as a standard MSC/VLR in existing mobile networks.
“We selected Taqua because the company’s virtual mobile core is proven to cost-effectively solve network challenges today, and at the same time support our upcoming voice over LTE (VoLTE) deployment,” said Nathan Sutter , Director of Network Operations and Engineering at Nex-Tech Wireless. “We can enhance our subscriber’s voice and messaging experience by initiating our mobile VoIP evolution today using Taqua’s VMC to deploy small cells and Wi-Fi Calling. Small cells and Wi-Fi Calling will then fit nicely together with our VoLTE strategy. Having all of these mobile VoIP services within one core makes their management and deployment easier and more streamlined.”
