MORRISVILLE,The Pentagon’s Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) recently completed an upgrade of the Defense Department’s voice network, and Tekelec gear is part of the deployment.

The DISA utilized numerous Tekelec signaling platforms known as Eagle as part of the network backbone in both the United States and in the Asia-Pacific.

According to Tekelec, the gear “will increase call control reliability and network security.”

“As the network provider for the DoD, DISA requires highly reliable and secure solutions to support its mission-critical network,” said Fred Lax, chief executive officer of Tekelec. “The decision to deploy our signaling platforms in the U.S. and overseas illustrates Tekelec’s global reputation and expertise in meeting these stringent standards.”
