MORRISVILLE, NC -- (Marketwire) -- 07/11/12 -- Tekelec is the leading independent policy market vendor by share, according to a new report from Analysys Mason ("Service delivery platforms: worldwide market shares 2011"). Tekelec has outpaced other independent vendors for three years running. The company also announced today that new data from Exact Ventures shows Tekelec leading the Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC) market with 75% - 85% share.
The policy leadership resulted from Tekelec adding 11 Policy Server (PCRF) customers in 2011 and continuing to innovate with new software releases that support monetization of over-the-top (OTT) applications, advanced shared data plans and location-based LTE services. The company now has 57 policy customers -- including 43 Tier 1s -- in 33 countries.
Tekelec's Policy Server is a key element of the New Diameter Network, a framework for managing signaling growth and profiting from mobile data. Diameter is the protocol for communications among policy servers, charging systems, mobility and session management and subscriber databases. Other critical components include Tekelec's Diameter Signaling Router (DSR) and Subscriber Data Management products.
Glen Ragoonanan, Analysys Mason senior analyst, said in the report, "Tekelec is also a market leader in Diameter signaling routing, which is rapidly becoming essential for policy control." He added that Tekelec's "leadership in Diameter signaling routing further enhances its chances to win policy control deals from Tier 1 communications service providers."
"Policy is the brains of the network and the Diameter Signaling Router is the central nervous system," said Doug Suriano, Tekelec's CTO. "By bringing the two together, service providers can scale to deliver innovative, usage-based services like shared data plans as well as generate revenues from new over-the-top business models."
