Oracle boosts OSS/BSS arsenal with Tekelec buy

26 MAR 2013

Oracle has boosted its OSS/BSS portfolio with the purchase of Tekelec, a provider of network signalling, policy control and subscriber data management technology for communication networks.

The buy boosts Oracle’s communications portfolio as it looks to cater for the increase in smart devices, mobile apps and data traffic.

“Service providers require intelligent network control technologies to address these increased network workloads as well as to deploy and monetise cloud and over-the-top services,” Oracle said in statement.

Oracle plans to combine Tekelec’s technology — used by more than 300 service providers in more than 100 countries — with its own communications software and that of another recent acquisition, Acme Packet, which provides session border control technology.

“The combination of Oracle and Tekelec will provide service providers with the most complete solution to manage their businesses across customer engagement, business and network operations, service delivery and end user applications,” said Oracle Communications senior VP and general manager, Bhaskar Gorti.

Financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed.
