Nokia Siemens wants Nortel's CDMA, LTE and VoIP

Source: Rethink Wireless
It seems increasingly likely that Nokia Siemens is a frontrunner to acquire at least parts of the mobile business of Nortel, as it considers offers for its various business units as a possible alternative to emerging from bankruptcy protection intact but significantly pared-down.

The NSN bid is reported to include CDMA and LTE products, plus TDM switches and VoIP gear. The appeal of LTE and carrier VoIP are obvious - both will be growth sectors, and Nortel has valuable R&D and patents in the former, and a strong position in the latter, signing customer deals even from within Chapter 11.
