Nokia Merger Likely To Lead To Layoffs At Alcatel-Lucent India Unit

Comments Off on Nokia Merger Likely To Lead To Layoffs At Alcatel-Lucent India Unit 48

Finnish network gear maker Nokia’s acquisition of rival Alcatel-Lucent is likely to lead to some layoffs at the French telecom equipment maker’s India unit, mostly employees in marketing and sales and possibly some research & development staff, people familiar with the matter said.

“There are major overlaps surrounding the wireless infrastructure business line and minimal overlaps in other verticals, which would lead to some lay-offs in the country,” one person told ET.

A second person said the sales team is spread across six-seven key accounts where there’s an overlap with Nokia Networks in India. Original post at ET Telecom
