Taqua, a leading supplier of mobile and fixed communications solutions, Tuesday announced that C Spire has selected Taqua’s Virtual Mobile Core (VMC) as its mobile VoIP core for the deployment of small cells. C Spire provides a suite of wireless communications, high-speed Internet access and a range of other telecommunications products and services to consumers and businesses across Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, and Florida.

According to Taqua, the Virtual Mobile Core (VMC) solution is a common 4G mobile core enabling rapid deployment of next-generation mobile voice and messaging services. The VMC is a carrier-grade software product that converges a number of 3GPP standard functions including a Telephony Application Server (TAS), IP Short Message Gateway (IP-SM-GW), Service Consistency and Continuity Application Server (SCC-AS), and Media Resource Function (MRF). The VMC can be deployed in pre-IMS or IMS networks as well as deployed optionally as a standard MSC/VLR in existing mobile networks, said the company.

We selected Taqua’s Virtual Mobile Core for small cell deployments because of its scalability and versatility. Taqua’s mobile core is used in a variety of ways by millions of subscribers for mobile VoIP services. This gives us the confidence that the Taqua VMC can support our small cell offering and provide the flexibility we require to ensure that C Spire continues to deliver high quality, state-of-the-art communication services to our subscribers.
