Oracle Corporation has acquired Tekelec, a company that has created intelligent mobile broadband solutions that enables service providers to manage and monetize mobile data and evolve to LTE.  Tekelec provides networking signaling and subscriber data management for their clients.

Tekelec is used by over 300 service providers in over 100 countries.  Oracle said that Tekelec’s network signaling services complement their operational support systems, service delivery platforms, and business support systems.
