Taqua, LLC, a provider of advanced wireline and wireless IP Multimedia switching and backhaul solutions, has announced that it will display its IP-peering and non-line of sight or ‘NLOS’ at the Mobile World Congress to be held at Barcelona this month.
Based in Richardson (News - Alert), Texas, the company was founded in 1998 and offers its enhanced solutions to wireline, cable and wireless carriers.
The wireless networks have been witnessing a high surge in the mass adoption of smartphones, tablets and mobile data applications worldwide; and the need to consistently add capacity, improve coverage and adopt the most efficient methods of transporting multimedia data to offer high level of service availability and functionality to their subscribers.
Taqua (News - Alert) deploys its IP backhaul solutions to offer enhanced coverage and capacity at the cell network’s edge; and provide low cost network-to-network peering for secure transportation of multimedia.
“Taqua’s W-Series of NLOS wireless backhaul systems provides a flexible, high capacity backhaul solution for small cell sites that enable the 21st Century Cell Tower,” commented Scott Weidenfeller, chief marketing officer at Taqua. “For IP-peering, T7000 Intelligent Switching System flexibly interconnects operator IP networks to deliver secure, reliable and high quality IP services across a distribution network that links mobile and fixed operators.”
The W-Series NLOS Wireless Backhaul System by Taqua provides scalable and enhanced backhaul to small cell sites comprising of outdoor femtocells and picocells. All of these small cell sites are connected to the Taqua Remote Backhaul Module or ‘RBM’ via a standard Ethernet connection; while a shared NLOS wireless link enables connectivity for two to six RBMs to a Taqua Hub Backhaul Module or ‘HBM.’ Further, the HBM is connected to the existing network of the carrier through wired Ethernet, which makes it possible for the enterprise to locate it at a macro site or any other place which ensures wire line connectivity.
Using the Taqua methodology, enterprises can deploy a big number of clusters as a ‘network,’ which can be conveniently managed through a single user interface. Taqua claims that all of the HBMs can initially offer up to 60 Mbps bandwidth in Release 1.0, while it aims at upgrading the bandwidth up to hundreds of Mbps in the future.
When deployed in combination with any standards based small cell site such as picocells, outdoor femtocells or WiFi (News - Alert) hotspots, the Taqua W-Series can be easily installed with scalable deployment options for wall or pole mounting on light or utility poles.
In November 2008, Taqua announced the integration of VoiceMail into its standard Taqua 7000 or ‘T7000’ switching system solutions along with an optional Web-based subscriber control system. The T7000 Switching System is a blade-based advanced end-office soft switch that offers access to a wide-array of IP and circuit-based business and residential Class 5 switch features.
