NSN a winner in TOT auction

Nokia Siemens Networks profited where Ericsson failed in Thailand, as part of a consortium that won a major 3G network expansion contract issued by TOT.
 
Thai conglomerate Loxley and Chinese vendor Huawei are also members of the SL consortium - which is led by local vendor Samart - that won the contract on Friday with a bid of 16.29 billion baht (€385 million), after a court rejected Ericsson’s petition to freeze the auction, the Bangkok Post reports.
 
Ericsson had asked the nation's Administrative Court to put a hold on the auction process, arguing that it had been unfairly excluded after being disqualified from the sale along with ZTE earlier this month.
 

But the court denied the request, despite ZTE submitting a similar petition on the same day.
