Nokia Networks to Acquire Eden Rock
Nokia Networks today announced its intent to acquire Eden Rock Communications for an undisclosed sum. Eden Rock pioneered self-organizing networks (SON) technology for mobile broadband operators. "SON is essential for the increasingly complex heterogenous operator networks," said Nokia. "It provides workflow automation, network performance improvements, and additional reliability." Nokia Networks has its own SON business, and believes Eden Rock's solution is complementary to its own. Combined, Nokia believes it can become the vendor-of-choice for supplying SON radio tech to network operators. Some of the benefits cited by Nokia Networks include reduced operating expenses and improved customer experience. Eden Rock's employees will be transferred to Nokia Networks in the Seattle area. Nokia expects the deal to close during the third quarter of the year. Nokia is already in the process of acquiring Alcatel-Lucent to improve its competitive stature in the telecommunication networking market.
