Oracle has acquired communications networking firm Tekelec in a move aimed at helping Oracle address the growing number of smart devices, mobile apps and connected services in network signaling and data traffic.
Oracle will combine its Acme Packet with Tekelec’s products and aims to create a new communications offering for service providers to engage with customers, control network resources and deploy new services, Oracle said Monday.
More than 300 service providers in 100 countries use Tekelec’s technology to deliver and control communications services.
“As connected devices and applications become ubiquitous, intelligent network and service control technologies are required to enable service providers to efficiently deploy all-IP networks, and deliver and monetize innovative communication services,” said Bhaskar Gorti, Oracle senior vice president and general manager of communications.
“In an increasingly mobile and social world, customer experience is about optimizing network performance and personalizing services based on what engages, moves, and inspires people,” said Ron de Lange, Tekelec president and CEO.
