Nokia Looks To Boost U.S. Business With SAC Wireless Buy

In a bid to enhance its network infrastructure and deployment business in the U.S., Nokia has bought indoor wireless specialist SAC Wireless for an undisclosed sum. The acquisition, expected to close by the end of the third quarter this year, is likely to help the Finnish company improve its share in the network implementation market and deliver improved end-to-end network services to its customers. Adding to Nokia’s existing capabilities in network deployment, SAC Wireless is expected to help address complex issues related to distributed antenna systems, 4G upgrades and backhaul connectivity bottlenecks.

SAC Wireless has about 450 employees and specialises in improving wireless coverage in public places such as hospitals, government institutions, stadiums and enterprises by using distributed antenna systems. Buying SAC Wireless is in line with Nokia’s strategy of expanding its presence in the budding small cell market, and it must be hoping that the DAS specialist’s relationships with leading North American carriers including AT&T and Verizon helps it gain contracts as well. In fact, AT&T is planning to deploy more than 40,000 small cells by the end of 2015 as part of its multi-billion dollar network overhaul program Project Velocity IP, which could be a good business opportunity for Nokia.
