Ericsson Completes BelAir Acquisition

Ericsson completed its previously-announced acquisition of BelAir Networks. The former BelAir Networks' staff will be integrated into the Ericsson group in business unit Networks over the coming months.

BelAir Networks, which is based in Ottawa, Ontario, supplies indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi systems that enable service providers to build scalable, high performance Wi-Fi networks. Announced customers include AT&T and Comcast.

"We are gaining BelAir Networks' leading position in carrier-grade Wi-Fi equipment both in terms of installed base and product portfolio. By integrating BelAir Networks' talented people and these new assets into Ericsson's mobile infrastructure leadership, we will accelerate the integration of Wi-Fi and cellular technologies and strengthen our heterogeneous network (hetnet) offering," said Johan Wibergh, Executive Vice President and head of business unit Networks, Ericsson.
