Milan, Italy - 31 July 2015
Vodafone Italy, one of the country's largest operators and a fully-owned subsidiary of the Vodafone Group plc, has selected Nokia Networks to introduce commercial Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services on its network. Under the 5-year contract, Nokia Networks will implement its multifunctional Telecommunications Application Server (TAS) in a virtual, cloud-based environment to improve service agility and optimize network resource utilization for Vodafone Italy.
I'm willing to purchase at least one of your shares, provided you waive the no trade claus, and take BBRY stock in return (heh).
Nothing wrong with advertising the positives. If those ugly shorts are allowed to plaster the Yahoo message boards with their worthless spam, then I say do as yea please :o)
In a nutshell:
Huawei is the only telecoms equipment vendor that still spans consumer, enterprise and service provider markets.
Cisco sold off Linksys to Belkin and killed the Flip mini camcorder and concentrates on enterprise and service provider markets.
Alcatel merged with Lucent. Alcatel Lucent sold off its enterprise division to China Huaxin.
Lucent spun off its enterprise division and created Avaya.
Siemens sold its mobile handset business to BenQ, spun off its fixed handset business and created Gigaset
and divested the enterprise business that is now called Unify.
Siemens networks was eventually sold to Nokia. Nokia sold its handset business to Microsoft. Nokia Siemens Networks acquired the Motorola wireless networks business and became Nokia again.
Motorola sold off its wireless networks unit to Nokia, its handset business to Google, and the enterprise business is now named Motorola Solutions. Google sold Motorola to Lenovo.
Ericsson bought Marconi and sold off its stake in Sony Ericsson handsets to Sony and its enterprise business unit to Aastra. Aastra has now been acquired by Mitel. Ericsson als acquired Nortel’s CDMA and LTE assets.
After Nortel filed for protection from creditors in 2009, Ericsson won an auction to purchase Nortel’s CDMA and LTE assets and Avaya won an auction for Nortel’s Enterprise Solutions business.
Nokia has now stated its intent to buy Alcatel-Lucent for US $16.6 billion
As a result:
Huawei, Cisco, Nokia and Ericsson remain as large global telecom equipment vendors.
Marconi, Alcatel, Lucent, Siemens Communications, Nortel and Motorola no longer exist
Belkin, Avaya, Alcatel Lucent Enterprise (Huaxin), BenQ, Gigaset, Unify, Microsoft, Lenovo, Motorola Solutions, Sony and Mitel now compete in consumer and enterprise telecoms markets.

It's a second marriage for both. They have a much higher probability of succeeding than first marriages. They seem to have anticipated all of the pitfalls to date -- with virtually every constituency paving the way and an almost unanimous acceptacne. That clearly was not the case with prior integrations on both sides.
article at the multi-path tcp organization:
"In Korean, Multipath TCP is pronounced GIGA Path"
"At IETF‘93 in Prague, SungHoon Seo provided several very interesting details of the Gigapath commercial service that is now sold by KT. This service enables smartphone users to reach bandwidth of up to 1 Gbps on existing smartphones. This is probably the fastest commercially deployed mobile network. They achieve this high bandwidth by combining both fast LTE (with carrier aggregation) and fast WiFi networks on Multipath TCP enabled smartphones. At this stage, only the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones support the Gigapath service, but KT is working with other vendors to add Multipath TCP on their smartphones. Measurements presented at the MPTCP Working Group meeting revealed that current smartphones are able to reach throughputs of about 800 Mbps out of a theoretical maximum of 1.17 Gbps.
What is more impressive is how the system has been implemented and how the users can benefit from it."
able to work with exiting handsets, it uses carrier aggregation along with the addition of network server machines implementing proxy server software on the provider side of the network. and doesn't need to wait for any 5g protocols or standards to be developed, approved, tested and implemented. this could spur some build outs that will benefit nokula before the 5g build outs start.
what a spam I even don't waste my time to reply . These spams are all over every message boars.
I changes the good to goof just for fun.

still burning cash, quarter after quarter...but reality will come after Combes leaves and the accounting massaging stops at ALU, lots of skeletons in the closet
It shouldn't have any impact, but you never know. I believe it was Samsung that disclosed that a US arbitrator under the ICCC umbrella is handling this case The last time Nokia appeared before a US arbitrator in 2005 (vs Interdigital), it was absolutely flummoxed by the binding arbitration decision in favor of IDCC -- albeit, over a much narrower issue of the most favored licensee clause in its licensing contract with IDCC -- and tried mightily in vain to have it vacated.
1) The Samsung/Nokia binding arbitration is part of a renewal of a previous 5-year licensing agreement where both Samsung and Nokia already agreed to cross-license on a portfolio basis instead of a patent by patent basis.
This appellate ruling appears to encourage companies to litigate instead of settling. In fact, that is exactly what Apple is doing even this early in Ericsson vs Apple where it wants to question and litigate the essentiality of all of Ericsson's SEPs on a patent by patent basis.
2) As part of its April 2014 antitrust settlement with the European Commission, Samsung agreed to give up its right to seek injunctive relief over its standard essential patents for the next 5 years. Theoretically, that devalues the worth of Samsung's SEPs in relation to Nokia's SEPs.
The November 2013 Samsung renewal involved the same netting out process used in the previous 5 year deal in 2008 when Nokia was still doing 400+ million mobile devices a year and Samsung was only doing 150+ million mobile devices a year. This is a process whose exact mechanics are confidential, but apparently it is where the value of Nokia's SEP patent portfolio is weighed against the relative value of Samsung's SEP.patent portfolio to arrive at a net royalty rate.
Samsung has already conceded that they will pay Nokia more than the previous deal since Nokia is no longer in the mobile device business and Samsung is now doing 350+ million mobile devices a year. Binding arbitration is supposed to determine how much more.
