Ericsson CEO sanguine on Nokia-Alcatel-Lucent merger

Thursday 17 December 2015 | 22:08 CET | News
Ericsson CEO Hans Vestberg is sanguine about the merger of Nokia Networks and Alcatel-Lucent. "Of course they are in the same segments as we are," Vestberg told Les Echos, "but we have our own 2020 strategy, which consists in transforming our group. Today, we are halfway there. In the future, we will be much more than a software and services group, we have decided to evolve in areas such as ICT."
