Tekelec to Discuss Scaling the Diameter Core at 2011 Next Generation Core Networks Summit

Will Address How Operators Can Cost Effectively Evolve to LTE and IMS

MORRISVILLE, NC--(Marketwire - March 28, 2011) -  Tekelec (NASDAQ: TKLC), the broadband solutions provider, is a silver sponsor and speaker at the 2011 Next Generation Core Networks Summit. Matt McCann, principal architect, will present "Scaling and Securing the Diameter Core Network" on March 30 from 3:10-3:40 p.m. GMT at Thistle Marble Arch in London.

Diameter is a key signaling protocol in next generation core LTE and IMS networks. McCann will focus on key Diameter interfaces and how to manage Diameter growth for policy, charging and mobility management functions. Topics to be covered include:

  • Policy, charging, roaming and home subscriber server (HSS) access networks
  • Connection and transaction scalability
  • Screening and topology hiding
  • Stateful and stateless routing
  • Network monitoring and intelligence

Tekelec is the Diameter thought leader -- having launched the Diameter Signaling Router (DSR) in October 2010 -- and is deploying it to MetroPCS, the first North American LTE network. The DSR provides a single connection point for all Diameter traffic, centralizing routing, signaling traffic management and load-balancing tasks and supporting the Diameter Routing Agent (DRA) functionality as defined in 3GPP.

McCann brings more than 20 years of telecommunications experience, including 12 years at Tekelec in product management and marketing. Prior to Tekelec, McCann worked for AT&T Bell Laboratories in various systems engineering and system test roles for both switching and intelligent network (IN) systems.
