With this current move Nokia Siemens Networks expects further strong ties with multiple Telecom providers and stand strong as third largest wireless network provider in U.S, the biggest foreign wireless vendor in Japan and strengthen its second position at global level.

By the end of 2010, as per the contract  terms, company is expecting to complete transaction and all 7,500 employees of Motorola’s wireless network unit would be part of Nokia Siemens Networks. This way Nokia Siemens Networks’ will not have any financial influence in 2010.
