Tekelec wins additional signaling business with Wataniya Telecom

To balance traffic for SMS needs and screen and control inter-operator traffic

By CBR Staff Writer

Tekelec, a US-based provider of telecommunications network systems and software applications, will provide its EAGLE 5 platform to Wataniya Telecom in Kuwait, giving the operator a central signaling system to handle core network functions.

According to Tekelec, EAGLE 5 is a signaling platform, providing a single system for multiple core networking functions such as signal transfer point, signaling gateway and intelligent routing. The platform scales to meet Wataniya’s signaling system 7 (SS7) and SS7 over IP, or SIGTRAN, signaling needs based on subscriber growth and the increase of 3G-enabled handsets, which can often generate more signaling traffic than 2G or 2.5G devices.

Wataniya will also use Tekelec to balance traffic for SMS needs and screen and control inter-operator traffic for billing accuracy. The EAGLE 5 maximizes SMS traffic routing by analyzing signaling intelligence.

Hisham Sibilini, chief technology officer of Wataniya Telecom, said: Tekelec gives us new abilities to perform numerous network operations and analysis from a central control. Saving CAPEX and OPEX and giving us the tools to improve our services’ portfolio as we continue to grow.
