Tekelec: Corrections to the Recent Light Reading Article

Last week I quoted a Light Reading article, containing some claims from Tekelec for their Diameter router and PCRF market share (see "Tekelec: 19 of 23 Major LTE Deployments Use our DSR" - here).

Tekelec marketing informed me that they have some corrections to the number of deployments mentioned in the article and my post:
  • Original post - “According to Tekelec, out of the 23 major LTE deployments that have taken place globally, 19 of them are using DSR deployments offered by them”.

    Correction: "The 19 DSR customer number is accurate, but we did not provide the 23 data point. We suspect that came from the reporter reverse-engineering our ~80% market share".

    See also "Tekelec: 10 New Diameter Router Customers; Total of 19" - here, May 2012 and "[Exact Ventures]: Tekelec has 75% of DSR Market; Acme and F5 Follow" - here, June 2012.
  • Original post" “In PCRF, Tekelec claims to have 63 customers around the world out of which 46 are tier 1 customers...”.

    Correction: "We have 58 policy customers, and 43 of them are Tier 1s"
