Nokia Networks is to cut 17,000 jobs as part of an extensive restructuring program that the company hopes will help focus its business and cut €1 billion (US$1.3 billion) from its annual operating expenses by the end of 2013 compared with the end of this year. (See NSN to Restructure.)

The headcount reduction means NSN is cutting 23 percent of its workforce.

The company, which has been struggling to achieve profitability since it was formed, also plans to slim down its product portfolio to focus on next-generation mobile broadband and professional services. (See Is an IPO Next for NSN? and M&A Props Up NSN's Q3 Growth.)

Light Reading will update on this story as further details emerge.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
