At the LTE World Summit in Amsterdam today (25 June 2015), Taqua, LLC announced new partnerships with mobile telecommunications systems integrators and solutions providers in Asia, the Middle East and Latin America.
The partners will sell and support the company’s Virtual Mobile Core and Mobile Client solution, which enables VoWiFi and Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services utilising an operator’s existing mobile infrastructure without requiring expensive or complicated upgrades.
These new partnerships extend Taqua’s existing presence in North America and Europe to key growth regions, allowing the company to serve a growing list of mobile communications service providers that are interested in deploying VoWiFi to improve indoor service coverage.
“Mobile operators and MVNOs worldwide are realizing the growing importance of Wi-Fi Calling as a value-added service that solves real-world coverage issues for incumbents, and provides a fast, cost effective on-ramp to advanced voice and messaging services for new providers,” said Gary Sarson, vice president of business development for Taqua.
