Reader Poll: NSN's Best US Fit
Basically, NSN wants to be a bigger player in the US telecom systems market, and has been trying to buy significant customer accounts, and technology assets, for more than a year now. First it bid for Nortel's CDMA and LTE business, and then the Canadian firm's optical and Carrier Ethernet (Metro Ethernet Networks) business, but it was outbid on both occasions. (See NSN Hopes Dashed as Ciena/Nortel Deal OK'd and Ericsson Delivers Knockout Blow to NSN.)
Now it could easily end up with Motorola's GSM, WCDMA, CDMA, WiMax, and LTE assets.
But which of the three businesses it has targeted would have best suited NSN's needs? That's the question we're asking you today. We're not giving you the "none of them" opt-out clause, though -– choose the one that you believe is/would have been the best/least-worst fit for NSN.
