Euronews: EC Pushes for Huawei/ZTE Probe

Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., ZTE Corp., Infinera Corp. and Interoute Communications Ltd. lead the charge in today's assault on the EMEA headlines.
  • It looks like the European Commission will try to go ahead with an investigation into Huawei and ZTE's alleged state subsidies, reports Reuters, despite the lack of a formal complaint from European manufacturers. The fear of losing contracts in China is thought to have deterred the likes of Ericsson AB and Alcatel-Lucent from spelling out their grievances to Brussels.

  • Interoute has deployed Infinera's DTN-X platform, which features 500Gbit/s long-haul super-channels, across its pan-European network. Interoute's network connects 102 cities in 30 countries. (See Infinera's New Euro Scalp and Infinera Picks Up the Pace.)
  • Telkom SA Ltd., the South African fixed-line operator, has agreed to pay a 449 million rand (US$49 million) fine imposed on it by regulators for anti-competitive behavior, reports Reuters.
  • First-quarter revenues at Ziggo B.V., the Netherlands' largest cable operator, inched up just 0.2 percent year-on-year to €387.8 million($510.1 million). Some analysts believe Ziggo is a potential takeover target for Liberty Global Inc., which already holds a 12.65 percent stake in the operator.
