Oracle Acquires Network Manager Tekelec
Oracle said in a statement that the growth of smart mobile devices — iPhones and iPads, as well as Android phones and tablets and the like — have exponentially boosted data traffic on networks. That has created a need for service providers to better manage the new traffic loads on their networks, while also deploying new services that can make money. Tekelec’s control software is already in use by more than 300 service providers around the world.
Additionally, Oracle said it will combine Tekelec’s capabilities with those of Acme Packet, which it acquired earlier this year for $1.7 billion.
