Nokia Siemens Networks Bids on Nortel’s MEN

As expected, Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) officially stepped into the auction ring today to challenge Ciena for the privilege of owning insolvent Nortel Networks’ Metropolitan Ethernet Networks (MEN) assets.

The auction, as fas we know, is continuing. The winner would have to clear all the usual regulatory hurdles before consummating any purchase.

Speculation surfaced recently that Infinera might also take an auction-day run at Nortel’s MEN assets, but, as of now, we’ve received no confirmation that a third party has entered the proceedings.
