VALINHOS, Brazil -- TEL-NT, a subsidiary of Telmar Network Technology, announced its strategic relationship with Tekelec to provide multi-vendor repair, asset management and logistics services in Brazil and other Latin American countries.

TEL-NT will manage all repairs of Tekelec’s next-generation network equipment located in Brazil plus other countries at its world-class repair facility in Valinhos, Brazil. In addition, TEL-NT will provide asset management for Tekelec’s high-end signaling gear for its networks in Brazil and other Latin American countries at its Valinhos location.

“We’re very excited that Tekelec has chosen TEL-NT to manage its repair, asset management and logistics for its Brazilian market and additional networks in Latin America,” said Steven Pickett, president and CEO of TEL-NT. “We will be able to provide additional cost and delivery efficiencies with the same high-quality service Tekelec’s customers have come to expect.”

Brazil is Tekelec’s largest market in Latin America, with customers including Claro, Nextel, Oi and TIM Brasil. Multiple Tier One customers have deployed Tekelec’s session management, mobile messaging, performance management and number portability solutions, and Tekelec’s Camiant Policy Management offering has also been selected by a Tier One operator.

“We continually examine the most rapid and efficient ways to meet our customers’ support needs,” said Dave Rice, Tekelec’s senior vice president of operations. “TEL-NT helps Tekelec service an expanding installed base with deep product expertise, on-site equipment and quick response times across the region.”
