Nokia and Alcatel-Lucent: A combination beyond the greatness you need to know

Lately, we are informed that the European Commission has approved the request of buying Alcatel-Lucent from Nokia. This is such a new move in Nokia’s strategy to come back next year.

As far as we know, Alcatel-Lucent S.A. is a French global telecommunications equipment company, whose headquarter is based in Boulogne-Billancourt, France. Though it can be a not-so-familiar name on the mobile market in Asia, it is still a monster in the tech industry.

We think that the merging between Nokia and Alcatel, they will become a strong competitor against Samsung company with highest sale report currently as well as other giants. On the other hand, if only looking at the the EU market, the European Commision has another idea. When considered and agreed with the proposal of Nokia, they concluded that the acquisition “would not raise competition concerns” between many other well-known members in the market, namely Ericsson, Huawei, Samsung and ZTE. In addition, the merger would not “make it harder for new or small players to enter and expand in the market.”

Besides that, Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri is reported to run the new emerged company in China and take on contracts with the 2 biggest U.S. carriers: Verizon Communications and AT&T.

To recap, we are quite interested in the combination of Nokia and Alcatel as well as the products that they will introduce in the future. It looks like Nokia in 2016 will bring many surprises to the mobile world. Are you waiting for this as much as we are? Share with us your thinking!
