Nokia buying U.S. network services firm

  • Nokia (NOK +0.1%) is acquiring SAC Wireless, a provider of mobile infrastructure engineering, deployment, and management services, for an undisclosed sum. The deal is expected to close in Q3.
  • Nokia predicts the purchase will help it grow its implementation services share. SAC has 450 employees, and boasts a proprietary process (called Engine Room) for handling large-scale deployments.
  • Light Reading observes the deal strengthens Nokia's presence in the growing indoor/small cell infrastructure space, and could help it make inroads with AT&T and Verizon - Nokia doesn't currently have 4G base station contracts with either.
