Tekelec's Camiant Policy Management Solution Tops Infonetics Research Survey Two Years in a Row

Tekelec Tier-One Wins in LTE and 3G Networks Spur Industry Recognition

MORRISVILLE, NC--(Marketwire - November 15, 2010) - Tekelec (NASDAQ: TKLC), the broadband data management company, leads the list of the top-named policy server vendors, according to a survey of global service provider decision-makers by Infonetics Research. Service provider respondents also rated Tekelec's policy server technology the best in the industry, and gave Tekelec's policy server technology the highest rating as compared to other suppliers.

The findings are detailed in the Infonetics Research "Policy Server Deployment Strategies: Global Service Provider Survey." Tekelec's Camiant Policy Management Solution received high ratings for the second consecutive year. Tekelec also scored favorably on price-to-performance ratio and product roadmap. Tekelec acquired Camiant in May 2010. 

Infonetics noted Tekelec's "several high profile wireless deals over the last year" including policy wins in the Verizon Wireless LTE network and multi-country deals for the 3G networks of Telefónica and another Latin American operator. By the end of 2010, Tekelec's total global policy deployments will span 44 service providers -- including 32 Tier-One providers -- across GSM, CDMA, fixed, cable and LTE networks in 26 countries.

"Tekelec has gained traction across multiple markets, particularly in the wireless sector, where we see the bulk of the policy management opportunity occurring over the next several years," said Shira Levine, Directing Analyst, Next Gen OSS and Policy at Infonetics Research. "We've also seen Tekelec looking to expand its capabilities further by integrating its policy control capabilities with its subscriber data management and performance management offerings. This type of solution could enable operators to make real-time, subscriber-centric policy decisions for revenue-generating personalized services, as well as relieve network congestion by weighing quality of service against guaranteed service levels."
