Nokia losing 3G Ground To Competition

The company has suffered a string of loses in the networking space recently, the most recent being a decision by Italian operator Wind, a unit of Enel, to source and install its base stations through German provider Siemens AG.

In 2001 Nokia had made much of Wind’s decision to use Nokia “as its strategic partner to ensure the network’s fast deployment and effective launch of UMTS service in Italy.”

It now says that it had been only a minor supplier to the Wind network and that the decision to go with Siemens for base stations was “a commercial decision by Wind, rather than a technical one.”
