RICHARDSON, Texas -- Taqua® LLC., a leading supplier of next-generation end-office switching systems and technologies, today announced that Communications Options, Inc. (COI), has purchased two Taqua 7000s (T7000™) to support its growing voice services in Ohio.

Communications Options, Inc. (COI) is a 17 year old Westerville, Ohio–based service provider that provides a bundle of local, long distance, and internet services to approximately 6,000 business and residential subscribers throughout Ohio. COI purchased and deployed the first T7000 as a full-featured next-generation Class 5, operating with centralized call control at the edge of COI’s access network. The second T7000 is being used as an intelligent gateway at a different location within the COI network. In this deployment, the advanced features and call control are managed by a remote softswitch and the T7000 provides the PSTN interconnection.

“Flexibility, reliability and functionality were key in our decision making process,” said Steve Vogelmeier, president of COI. “With the switch-on-a-card architecture for both IP and TDM services, the T7000 can deliver centralized or distributed call control on a DS0, trunk group or system level. With our diverse customer base, this flexibility allows us to cost-effectively deliver services how and where it makes sense. In addition, configured as an intelligent gateway, the T7000 reduces deployment complexity and cost as it eliminates network elements required by other gateways alternatives, especially for the full emergency standalone capability.”
