Tekelec Is the Front Runner in Emerging Diameter Signaling Market, Says Infonetics Research

Market to Average More Than 100% Annual Growth Through 2016

MORRISVILLE, NC--(Marketwire - Feb 14, 2012) - Tekelec, the mobile broadband solutions company, is the "front runner" in the emerging Diameter signaling control market according to Infonetics Research's first report on the space. Tekelec achieved this position with key customer wins in North America, and the report states that, "Tekelec will continue to be a formidable competitor" because of incumbency among large operators.

Infonetics Research published its findings in the new report "Diameter Signaling Control: Annual Worldwide and Regional Market Size and Forecasts." The firm forecasts a 106% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the Diameter signaling market through 2016, with North America generating the most revenue of any region each year of the forecast period.

"We expect to see rapid uptake of Diameter signaling solutions as operators roll out LTE and see the impact of increased Diameter traffic on their networks. Operators need to prepare for the signaling storm of new subscribers, smart devices, new applications and personalized data plans," said Diane Myers, directing analyst, Infonetics Research. "Tekelec is the market leader in Diameter signaling thanks to customer validation like that from Verizon Wireless combined with its global signaling expertise."

The report calls Tekelec "an early mover in the Diameter signaling controller space." In addition to Verizon Wireless, the company has announced MetroPCS and another tier one U.S. LTE provider as customers of its Diameter Signaling Router.

"The New Diameter Network is a foundation for a successful mobile data business," said Doug Suriano, chief technology officer of Tekelec. "The Diameter signaling market is being propelled by the need to manage mobile data and signaling traffic growth across 3G, LTE and IMS networks."
