A recent Infonetics Research survey found the global policy-management-software market grew 32 percent last year to $774 million, with products for 3G networks providing much of that momentum. However, policy deployments for LTE networks are on the rise as operators integrate policy control to better monetize network investments. The global policy-management market is projected to grow to $2.4 billion in 2017, and Openet continues to lead the policy-management software pack, followed closely by Tekelec (soon to be acquired by Oracle [CTDaily, 03/25/13]). This could be bad when it comes to choices for operators. “Oracle’s recent acquisition of Tekelec ups the ante in the already hot policy-management market, where we’re seeing the smaller players being edged out of deals by larger vendors,” comments Shira Levine, Infonetics Research’s directing analyst/Service Enablement and Subscriber Intelligence.
