Ericsson AB, Telenor ASA, Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. and Nokia Siemens Networks are the big beasts in today's EMEA news jungle.

  • Ericsson is looking to bolster its cloud credentials with the launch of the Ericsson Cloud System, an umbrella term that encompasses what it calls a Cloud Manager and a Cloud Execution Environment, the latter based on OpenStack Cloud Management. So it's fair to say it's something to do with the cloud, then. All will be revealed at the forthcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
  • Norway's Telenor saw fourth-quarter revenues rise 2.19 percent year-on-year to 25.99 billion Norwegian kroner (US$4.75 billion), but this still fell short of analysts' predictions, according to Reuters.
  • Swisscom AG has chosen Huawei as its network expansion partner, as it looks to bring fiber-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) to the more rural parts of Switzerland. The eight-year deal is worth around 300 million Swiss francs ($326 million) to the Chinese vendor. (See Swisscom Picks Huawei for Fiber Expansion.)
  • The legal battle between French media companies Lagardere and Vivendi ratcheted up a notch as Lagardere sued Vivendi for restitution of €1.6 billion ($2.2 billion) to Canal+ France, the pay-TV unit in which it holds a 20 percent stake. (Vivendi holds the remainder.)
  • Nokia Siemens Networks is to supply its GSM-Railway infrastructure system to a major rail route in Poland that links Warsaw with the Baltic port of Gdynia. The system is expected to go live in the second quarter of 2015. (See NSN Gets Railway Job.) — Paul Rainford, Assistant Editor, Europe, Light Reading
