Midvale Telephone Exchange has chosen Taqua’s T7000 Switching System (T7000) to replace seven Class 5 switches and enable advanced IP-based services, the vendor announced today.
The 98-year-old telco,which offers services in Arizona, Idaho, Oregon and Washington state, bought its first T7000 in 2006 to replace the first of its eight legacy switches. Now it’s replacing the remaining Class 5s with the new gear, which includes SIP-based interfaces for advanced service delivery and VoIP.
“Our first T7000 has proven to be a very cost-effective and reliable Class 5 replacement switch
. As a result, we are committing additional network build-outs to Taqua as well,” said John Stuart, operations manager of Midvale Telephone Exchange. “By adding PIC cards to all the systems and centralizing an application server, we are able to very cost-effectively provide advanced voice mail and unified messaging for all our subscribers while enabling us to market advanced IP-based services anywhere across our entire network.”
The customer isusing a unique feature within the T7000 in which an IP card is added to make it look like an IAD to a centralized application server sitting in one of the central offices, explained Frederick Reynolds, Taqua’s vice president of marketing. This allows Midvale to provide voice mail across all the switches –whether they are TDM or IP. It also allows Midvale to market IP Centrex and hosted PBX features to select business and high-end SOHO customers that are located around each of the switches. And, if there is a loss of communications to the application server, the T7000 provides full Class 5 telephony services so there is no loss of communications to the subscriber.网站排名优化方法有哪些企业模板建站价格
