Policy Management Wins: Tekelec Diameter Router, Volubill First US PCRF

Tekelec and Volubill announced new US wins:

Tekelec said that it "has been selected by a U.S. tier-one operator to supply key Diameter signaling technology for its nationwide LTE network .. The operator will deploy Tekelec’s Diameter Signaling Router (DSR), which supports Diameter scaling needs for up to hundreds of millions of subscribers. In addition, the DSR will centralize network routing data and help manage subscriber profile information. Tekelec’s DSR provides up to 500,000 Diameter messages per second (MPS) in a single frame, including redundancy"

See "Tekelec’s Diameter Signaling Router Critical Component for Nationwide LTE Network" - here. A year ago Camiant (before being acquired by Tekelec) announced that "Verizon Wireless Selects Camiant for PCRF" (here).

Diameter routing is a new technology - see current list of vendors - here. I heard from one of the vendors that there 4-5 other, unannounced, vendors that they've seen in competitive situations.

Volubill announced that it has "secured a policy management deal with a North American satellite and wireless communications provider. The deployment will see Volubill’s CONTROL-IT [here] solution deliver dynamic service fulfillment and wholesale invoicing across a 4G WiMAX-based network, serving more than half a million customers".

The [French] company says that this is "its first policy management deal in the United States .. [the operator  is one of] Forbes' 200 Best Small Companies in America and Washington Technology's Top 100 Federal Prime Contractors". Feel free to solve the puzzle.
