NSN’s 4G plans and strategic location for LTE center

Tom Nolle Tom Nolle Profile: Tom Nolle

NSN is opening a new LTE development center in Dallas, next door to the Nortel facilities, in effect, and thus able to draw on the labor pool from Nortel, much of which is willing to jump first and see how Ericsson might do second.

NSN had been an unsuccessful bidder for the Nortel wireless assets, but the move to set up its own development center might actually do the company more good by forcing it to devise a true LTE strategy of its own, integrated with its own assets and strategies.

Assimilating Nortel would not have been an easy task, in our view, and would have distracted management from the critical positioning exercises that are absolutely essential to getting a story ready for the fall planning cycle.
