Ericsson Completes Acquisition of Nortel's GSM Business

Ericsson completed its acquisition of Nortel's North American GSM business. The acquisition includes the transfer of important GSM business with North American operators and further strengthens Ericsson's ability to serve North America's leading wireless operators. More than 350 employees from Nortel will be integrated in the Ericsson group over the coming months. The deal was first announced in November 2009.


Ericsson's bid for Nortel's GSM assets was made together with Kapsch CarrierCom AG of Austria. Under the two transactions Ericsson is acquiring certain assets of Nortel's GSM business in North America and Kapsch is acquiring certain assets outside North America.



"The addition of Nortel's skilled GSM experts adds additional depth to Ericsson's newest business unit," said Rima Qureshi, head of Ericsson's CDMA unit. "The CDMA team acquired from Nortel late last year has built a strong foundation already, and this new acquisition places us in a great position to support our growing list of North American and International customers."http://www.ericsson.com
