PLANO, Texas -- GENBAND™ Inc., a market-leading developer of next-generation IP gateways and application solutions, today announced it has signed and closed a definitive agreement with the leadership team responsible for managing the T7000 product family at GENBAND, formally Tekelec.

As part of the recent acquisition of the Tekelec’s Switching Solutions Group, GENBAND acquired the Tekelec 7000 product line, formally Taqua.
