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