Oracle has entered into an agreement to acquire North Carolina-based Tekelec, a provider of network signaling, policy control, and subscriber data management solutions for communications networks. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Tekelec’s technology enables service providers to deliver, control and monetize personalized communications services, and is utilized by more than 300 service providers in over 100 countries.

Tekelec’s network signaling (Diameter and SS7), policy control and subscriber data management solutions complement Oracle’s mission-critical operational support systems, service delivery platforms, and business support systems, says the company.
