Euronews: Kudelski's Swiss Miss

Swiss video software and Algerian mobile spectrum kick off a quiet day on the EMEA news beat.

  • Kudelski Group , the Swiss video software firm that is perhaps best known for its Nagra brand, saw its revenues slide by more than 21 percent year-on-year to 404 million Swiss francs (US$513 million) in its first-half results. The company largely blamed the strength of the Swiss franc for its woes. (See Kudelski Reports H1.)

  • The Algerian government is to make the tender specifications for the country's 3G spectrum auction available by mid-September, with the actual auction scheduled for early 2012, reports TeleGeography. (See Mobile Broadband Booms in Algeria & Russia.)

  • According to the OilVoice website, the Iraqi communications ministry is launching the fourth round of its mobile license-granting this week. When a fourth mobile license came up for grabs in 2010, up to 15 firms, including Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ), South Africa's Mobile Telephone Networks (MTN) and Turkey's Turkcell Iletisim Hizmetleri A.S. (NYSE: TKC), expressed an interest.

  • Broadband provider Augere Holdings , operating under the Qubee brand name, is expanding its operations in Rwanda with the launch of a WiMax network in the country's capital, Kigali. (See Web Wide World: Rwanda.)
