' While Nokia’s struggles continued in the third quarter, its oft-ignored infrastructure joint venture with Siemens actually had some good news to report. Nokia Siemens Networks posted a record profit of €323 million ($424 million), all thanks to recent successes in LTE equipment sales—a market that NSN was struggling to compete in just two years ago.Big LTE wins in Japan and Korea have turned Asia into NSN’s biggest market region, surpassing Europe and accounting for €1.27 billion of its €3.5 billion in sales last quarter. What’s more, some of these Asian deals make use of some of LTE’s most sophisticated capabilities. SK Telecom is building an LTE-Advanced network that incorporates new small cell and self-optimizing network (SON) technologies unseen on any other 4G network globally.''Though Ericsson and Huawei still dominate the global telecom infrastructure market, ABI Research recently ranked NSN the world’s leading vendor in LTE contracts, intellectual property, and, most notably, its progress in small cells.'http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2012-10-19/as-nokia-sie...------------------MDP Home Fool
