Tekelec Selected by T-Mobile and BSNL

India's Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. (BSNL) has selected Tekelec's EAGLE 5 Integrated Signaling System solution to support its transition to next-generation networks. This latest purchase order for BSNL was received through a Tekelec local reseller, ITI Limited, which also will be in charge of the project implementation. The project will expand the existing deployment of 10 EAGLE 5 ISS nodes and adds an additional 14 nodes, which is one of Tekelec's largest single shipments of EAGLE 5 ISS nodes. BSNL, India's largest telecommunications company, is also extending an existing relationship with Tekelec for traditional signaling system 7 (SS7) signaling solutions initiated in 2005.

Separately, Tekelec won a contract to upgrade the T-Mobile Netherlands signaling network. The contract is the second one T-Mobile has signed with Tekelec in fewer than six months and follows the roll-out of Tekelec's Sigtran--IP-based signaling system 7 (SS7) solution, running on the EAGLE 5 Integrated Signaling System (ISS), at T-Mobile Germany earlier this year.
