MORRISVILLE, NC--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2012) - Tekelec's market-leading Policy Server received the highest rating in the policy and charging rules function (PCRF) product review category from industry analyst firm Current Analysis for the second consecutive year.
Tekelec was the only independent policy provider to exceed the product class average in every category: overall rating, capacity, support, features and deployment. In addition, Tekelec was the only vendor to achieve "Leader" ranking for capacity, which Current Analysis called the product's "standout strength."
"Given its deployment footprint, impressive performance capabilities, and new all-encompassing Policy Everywhere framework and policy products, the Tekelec Policy Server still sets the standard in the industry against which all other policy controllers are measured," said David Snow, principal analyst, IP services infrastructure at Current Analysis.
Last month, Tekelec announced its "Policy Everywhere" vision by introducing three new policy products that integrate with its Policy Server: Mobile Policy Gateway, Application Manager, and Policy Analytics Platform. Tekelec's new framework evolves policy management well beyond fair usage and tiered services to mobile devices, over-the-top (OTT) applications and business intelligence. Mr. Snow said, "Policy Everywhere establishes a new framework and holistic thought-leadership position for Tekelec."
The firm also called the product "one of the most prolifically deployed platforms on the market" and said, "An operator that deploys the Tekelec Policy Server is unlikely to have any difficulty integrating the platform into its policy and charging infrastructure."
"Policy is the 'everywhere' technology that is unlocking new mobile data revenues and customer value," said Houck Reed, vice president of product management and marketing at Tekelec. "As policy extends to the mobile device and over-the-top applications, it will transform service provider business models and scale to unprecedented capacity levels."
Tekelec has 58 policy customers, including 43 Tier 1 service providers, in 33 countries. In July, industry analyst firm Analysys Mason named Tekelec the leading independent policy market vendor by share for the third consecutive year.
