MORRISVILLE, NC -- (Marketwire) -- 05/06/10 -- Tekelec (NASDAQ: TKLC), the session and mobile data management company, today announced agreements to acquire two companies enriching the broadband Internet experience: policy control leader Camiant and evolved subscriber data management (SDM) company Blueslice Networks. Tekelec also announced that the Blueslice Networks acquisition was completed on May 5. Tekelec will be the only player in the industry to uniquely blend and capture the synergies among session, policy, subscriber data management, network and business intelligence, and mobile messaging. With these acquisitions, Tekelec will help shape the definition of next-generation core networks as global service providers evolve to all-Internet protocol (IP) architectures such as long-term evolution (LTE) and IP multimedia subsystem (IMS).
Tekelec will provide a unique layer of intelligence that gives service providers new real-time abilities to manage their networks based on dynamic policy control, unified subscriber profiles, and market-leading session management, including network routing data.
These capabilities will enable service providers to deliver high-quality and differentiated broadband data services. For example, service providers will be able to lower network costs and generate new revenues through personalized services, applications and bandwidth optimization. In addition, network operations, marketing and customer service teams will be able to transition subscribers to next-generation networks, identify new service needs, improve the quality of service, and reduce churn.
Tekelec will discuss the acquisitions in its previously announced operating results conference call scheduled for today at 8 a.m. EDT. Tekelec will host a live webcast of its conference call; to access the webcast, visit Tekelec's website located at www.tekelec.com, enter the Investor Relations section and click on the webcast icon.
