ALCATEL TO TAKE 50% OF EUROPEAN DIGITAL CELLULAR VENTURE WITH AEG, NOKIA

By CBR Staff Writer

Alcatel NV, AEG AG and Nokia Oy have now settled the details of their pan-European digital cellular equipment joint venture, saying that the company will be called European Cellular Radio or ECR 900. Alcatel, controlled by CGE SA, will have 50% of the venture, with Nokia holding 35% and AEG the remaining 15%. The product range for the new generation of digital cellular telephone equipment to the GSM standard, due to come into service in the early 1990s, will include base stations and switches. The company will be headquartered in Stuttgart, West Germany, and development, manufacturing and marketing will be shared by the three partners, but the plan is to dissolve the partnership in 1993. The aim by then is to have won 30% to 50% of a market they reckon will be worth $3,200m a year.
