Nokia buys RF filter startup to strengthen small cell lineup


Nokia (NOK -1.4%) has bought Mesaplexx, an Australian developer of RF filter tech (known as xCube) it claims can improve a base station's performance while shrinking hardware size and weight.

Nokia plans to integrate Mesaplexx's technology within its Flexi line of compact base stations, and thinks doing so could allow it to reduce form factors for its small cell base stations by 30% or more.

Nokia, like Ericsson, Alcatel-Lucent, and Cisco, has viewed the budding small cell market as a growth opportunity. Carriers have begun rolling out the miniaturized base stations in high-traffic areas such as train stations, stadiums, and theme parks.

    Naturals swing intraday, Tim. I need to sell now but I'm waiting for it to start its daily uptrend. Sellers are pretty much done for the say it looks like. We already have 10M volume.

    Look at a 5 day chart and your expectations will be confirmed. It's got higher highs and lower lows and that's a great thing.

    Agree. Hope after their midsummer holiday in two weeks, they'll return with a " get
    er done " attitude for the second half of summer.

    I think sellers are exhausted. Should move up at least for a while.

    Looks like Nokia is on a spending spree blowing that lifeline away. What will happen when they are on the brink again? What unit will they have to sell just to get by?

    These are small buys. Just peanuts economically but with big payoffs in IP later on.
