Nokia has confirmed the makeup of its senior team now that the Alcatel-Lucent acquisition is pretty much a done deal.
There was no mention of current A-Lu CTO and head of Bell Labs Marcus Weldon, despite both companies having previously confirmed he will be CTO of the new company.
Meanwhile former A-Lu CEO Michel Combes seems to have his hands full at his new company – Altice. He is also Chairman of French operator Numericable-SFR, which is owned by Altice, and has had to temporarily step in as CEO following the departure of Eric Denoyer. The move is part of a general restructure at the company, which was formed when Altice acquired SFR in 2014.
With Amazon and Google launching smart home initiatives, have the telcos missed out on their chance to cash in on this market?
