Nokia completes deal with Sasken over German unit

Nokia completed the transfer of its adaptation software R&D unit based in Bochum, Germany, to Sasken Communication Technologies, a Reuters report said.

Nokia announced the deal in January as part of its decision to close its cellphone plant in Bochum, cutting 2,300 staff.

'The transaction will enable continuance of the employment for 35 employees of the software R&D entity in Bochum,' Nokia said in a statement.
