MORRISVILLE, N.C. -- Tekelec (NASDAQ: TKLC), a leading developer of telecommunications products for next-generation fixed, mobile, and packet networks, today introduced the SIP-SS7 (session initiation protocol-signaling system 7) Gateway. The SIP-SS7 Gateway gives operators migrating to voice over packet (VoP) networks access to legacy services in circuit-switched networks--without requiring complete replacement of network elements or replication of intelligent network (IN) services in multiple domains. Tekelec is featuring the new gateway with its other advanced network signaling and switching solutions at SUPERCOMM in Chicago June 22-24, 2004, in Booth 22903.

"Operators are challenged to reduce overhead by creating faster, more efficient networks and to increase revenue with new multimedia services," explained Fred Lax, Tekelec president and CEO. "Many service providers worldwide are deploying VoP systems to streamline their networks and extend their service offerings. However, because of their substantial investments in circuit-switched networks, they need a solution that also leverages their existing resources and services as they transition to new technology. That's where our new gateway comes into play.

"Tekelec's SIP-SS7 Gateway serves as a stepping-stone to the next generation of voice technology--without requiring operators to upgrade existing network elements such as service control points," Lax continued. "By enabling VoP networks to seamlessly access routing-based IN services like toll free and number portability, the gateway extends the life of legacy systems while enabling the introduction of new technologies and services. It's a win-win situation."
