We may be coming to the point of a Nortel Ethernet sale soon after the first of the year, according to some of our sources. Four companies have been named possible buyers (Cisco, Ericsson, Huawei, and Nokia-Siemens), but we are hearing that the front runner is Huawei and that Cisco is not a serious contender. There are potential issues in a Huawei sale but company executives from both sides have been working to make them less likely to derail a deal. Whoever does the deal, it is likely that it will spur additional activity in the Ethernet space, and a Huawei buy could well set the stage for an eventual takeover of all of Nortel by Huawei
