Nokia strategy reflects capex shift

Tom Nolle Tom Nolle Profile: Tom Nolle

Nokia is launching “Tube,” its newest smartphone today, and is expected to articulate its mobile strategy in greater detail. The company, like others, is addressing what appears to be a capex shift to wireless for 2009, a shift that would increase sales of RF and handsets and reduce that of traditional data equipment, including routers, switches, and optics.

Mobile broadband has less capacity demand than fixed, and while mobile backhaul will be an important application, our research shows it to be shifting more decisively to Carrier Ethernet and also that the total capacity requirements for mobile backhaul are lower than those of enterprise Ethernet services or consumer wireline broadband and video.
