Tekelec Advances Performance Management Solution for 3G and LTE Mobile Data

New High-Speed Probe Improves the Subscriber Experience

BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwire - February 14, 2011) - Mobile World Congress Hall 1 Stand 1F44/1G49 -- Tekelec (NASDAQ: TKLC), the broadband data management company, today introduced new high-bandwidth mobile data traffic acquisition and filtering capabilities in its performance management solution. Tekelec's Performance Intelligence Center now comes equipped with a next-generation, 10 gigabit/second (Gbps) probe to support operators' growing mobile data traffic volumes for Internet-based application usage.

The next-generation probe (NGP) augments Tekelec's Intelligence Data Management (IDM) architecture to allow service providers to examine large volumes of traffic in order to identify critical network and service performance trends, such as enterprise customer usage and support for new devices and services. With the NGP, operators can rapidly analyze traffic data at a more granular level to identify potential network, service and device issues and apply real-time policies to improve the overall quality of experience (QoE).

In addition, the probe architecture supports service providers' existing networks and technology interfaces, ensuring a cost-effective solution to seamlessly collect and correlate traffic data across 2G, 3G, IMS and LTE networks -- all from a common platform.

"We forecast mobile operators to grow their spending on probe systems by 10 percent each year through 2014 as they require faster, more efficient ways to improve the quality of the services delivered across their networks as well as new ways to monetize the huge growth in traffic volumes," said Patrick Kelly, research director at research and consultancy firm Analysys Mason. "Tekelec's innovative next-generation solution will give operators new insights to better understand customers, differentiate services and operate their networks more efficiently."

Tekelec's Performance Intelligence Center enables service providers to convert real-time and historical traffic data into actionable business intelligence. The platform's comprehensive dashboards and reports provide troubleshooting, traffic and roaming management, service usage trending, device/handset performance and subscriber activity information across service providers' networks. The solution also integrates with Tekelec's signal transfer point and Diameter signaling products as well as its policy management and subscriber data management solutions to give service providers the tools to take action based on network performance and subscriber activity.

"Granular data traffic analysis and reporting is the best way for service providers to understand the performance of the services they deliver and then turn those findings into new personalized offerings," said Ron de Lange, executive vice president, global product solutions for Tekelec. "The Performance Intelligence Center gives operators a competitive edge by identifying new opportunities to quickly resolve potential network issues and create revenue-generating services."
