Oracle Buys Tekelec

If you can't build it, buy it. That's what Oracle Corporation seems to be doing as they venture deeply into real time communications related services, take aim at F5 Networks, Cisco and HP in the network services space and grow their sales portfolio. First was Acme Packet, a competitor to client Sansay, and today they entered into an agreement to purchase Tekelec, one of the leaders in signaling technology and policy management.

All of this is being fueled by the need to manage and control the way information flows and crosses boundaries. What is also obvious is what Mark Hurd learned while running HP is now being applied at Oracle.

Hat Tip to Todd Carothers of Counterpath for flagging this news.
