T-Mobile Selects Tekelec for LTE Signalling Routers
T-Mobile USA has selected Tekelec’s Diameter Signaling Router (DSR) for the buildout of the company’s LTE network, which will launch in 2013. The DSR provides T-Mobile with a central control point to route policy, charging and subscriber messages. This is essential to generate revenues from mobile data services and manage signaling growth in the New Diameter Network.
Earlier this year, T-Mobile announced its US$4 billion network modernization plan which includes the introduction of LTE services in 2013. One of the first steps is building a core LTE signaling network to support tens of millions of subscribers. Tekelec now has 19 Diameter Signaling Router customers, including five Tier 1 LTE operators in North America.
