Ericsson, Huawei, and Nokia renewed and extended the terms of an operations support systems interoperability initiative (OSSii) agreement that is designed to simplify the integration of mobile network management systems.
Ericsson cut its outlook for how much the network equipment will grow over the next few years, but still said it aimed to grow faster than the market.
