Taqua has partnered with Sonus to pre-integrate its IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) services cores with Sonus Session Border Control (SBC) to offer a fully virtualized, standard mobile core network solution to enable rapid deployment of the WiFi Calling service by mobile operators.

MobiFone, one of the largest mobile network operators in Vietnam recently launched its Wi-Fi Calling service using the combined solution from both vendors.

Taqua said that the virtualized core network solution enables mobile operators to deploy a seamless Wi-Fi Calling experience that uses the phone’s native dialer, contacts, call history and voice mail. The solution supports smartphones with built in native VoWiFi capability such as the iPhone, as well as smartphones that use Taqua’s downloadable Mobile Client software.  

Frederick Reynolds, vice president of marketing for Taqua
By combining Taqua’s virtualized IMS core with Sonus’s virtualized SBC, mobile operators can get a Wi-Fi Calling service to market quicker than ever before.   We look forward to building a strong relationship with Sonus and are already jointly engaged with several operators worldwide.

Mykola Konrad, vice president, Go-to-Market, Sonus
The integration of Sonus’ virtual SBC into Taqua’s virtualized mobile network core, provides mobile operators with a best-in-class solution designed to speed the rollout of VoWiFi.
