C Spire Wireless, which serves Mississippi and parts of Alabama and the Florida panhandle, is deploying Tekelec’s Diameter Signaling Router (DSR) to deliver personalized services on its LTE network. The DSR intelligently routes the policy, charging, roaming, authorization, authentication and mobility management messages that enable mobile data services. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Tekelec said its DSR will support subscribers’ personalized LTE services by binding a subscriber’s mobile data activities – including browsing and voice over LTE (VoLTE) – to a single policy server. This allows C Spire to offer new tightly integrated VoLTE and data services. All of C Spire’s Diameter traffic will flow through the DSR,
Tekelec has 75 percent to 85 percent share of the Diameter signaling control market, according to industry analyst firm Exact Ventures, including eight North American mobile operators.
