re: Could Huawei Buy Marconi? The British government had no difficulty watching Bookham get up and walk out of the UK, taking bundles of Nortel and Marconi IP with it.

I can't imagine they would have a problem seeing Marconi go.

It is a bit of a surprise BT have dropped Marconi for Huawei when they have no experience with the legacy systems.

re: Could Huawei Buy Marconi? So if Huawei won and critics say they don't have a support structure in place in UK then what the hell is several hundred people in UK doing? eating and drinking ??, What were BT's criteria if service as support isn't one of them ?

re: Could Huawei Buy Marconi? interesting that the last bits of Marconi-Fore ATM business tends to be in US government contracts.

You gotta figure Huawei would be the last nail in the Pittsburgh coffin.

re: Could Huawei Buy Marconi? A Marconi news release stated the company could not meet BT's commercial requirements.

re: Could Huawei Buy Marconi? Should the Huawei/Marconi buyout take place, Bookham could get a huge boost. In addition to buying Marconi's optical business, Huawei represents more than 10% of Bookham's revenues, and in 2004 Bookham received Huawei's sole gold award.

re: Could Huawei Buy Marconi? The should buy Tellabs or ADC.

I think Tellabs or ADC will be bought by somebody maybe Siemens or Fujistu.

Why?

Not technology. The customer contact list and entry into the door.. period.

re: Could Huawei Buy Marconi? The suggestion that the UK Govt would step in to stop Marconi being bought by anyone is ridiculous. No White Knight would rush in from the City of London mainly because most of our financial institutions are foreign owned anyway. Apart from that they're too busy trading in hedge funds and other rubbish..... The UK has absolutely no concept of a loss of prestige. We are quite content to let other countries invest in and develop technology so we can buy what we want when we need it. Napoleon once said that England was a nation of shopkeepers and it won't be long before he's proven 100% right. We're up for sale - offers anyone?

re: Could Huawei Buy Marconi? Totally agree, the tickets!!!

However, Marconi have more tickets than Tellabs or ADC I believe.

re: Could Huawei Buy Marconi? Huawei doesn't do R&D in UK, a couple of hundreds of experienced people are not enough, but not that bad.

China is the second largest market for Cisco, guess how many Cisco employees in China? Less than 1000! I admit there are a lot of Cisco parters in China, my point is, several hundreds of people should not be too bad.

But anyway, to purchase Marconi at this moment is really a smart choice for Huawei.

Well I would say, Huawei may not have experience on BT, but they do have lagacy system experience.
