Phil, 

Yes, of course I think Nokia is more appropriate. :) I also know Nokia Networks won't change the name.

Re: Swings and roundabouts
Personally speaking I find the names amusing.    Ciscosson is an attempt at taking a partnership between Cisco and Ericsson and making it appear as if they are joined at the hip.   

As Kelly Ahuja so eloquently pointed out, there are areas where they will partner with Ericsson, and other areas where they will compete.

As for the other name, Nokia seems more appropriate don't you think :).

Re: Swings and roundabouts
I wonder what the companies think about the "Ciscosson" and "NokiaLu" names. Anything that I have missed? -Susan

Re: Swings and roundabouts
I do think the Cisco-Ericsson partnership was a long-term strategic move to shore up some weaknesses within both companies. Cisco is particularly good at doing this, but usually through M&A. Ericsson obviously believes it can still make a go of it alone, and I would probably agree with that.

Re: Swings and roundabouts
@nasimson, you may be right.  Certainly Cisco is a shrewd player and knows the field well.  If they have put toether the right combination of strengths, they could be coming up with something truly competitive.

Note:  I find interesting Steve's point as well that this is a JV not a merger - could be another indicator of clear strategy!

Re: huh
@Steve: Perhaps they are not that excited about Ericsson's partnership with Cisco because of the latter's ongoing patent litigation with Arista?  Pending litigation always makes analysts and investors uncertain.  Other analysts have upgraded Arista recently, so perhaps that is indicative of the way the market is thinking in relation to Cisco overall.

Re: Swings and roundabouts
I think it's a little too early to dismiss Ciscosson as a nobody. Huawei and NokiaLu are tough but Ciscosson might have something up it's sleeve.

Re: huh
Iain, Ray,

If the Cisco/Ericsson partnership had been a merger rather a JV the regulators would have stopped it, right? 

Just thinking out loud here; bare with me!
