Nortel turns a profit

Like several other network equipment vendors, Nortel Networks reported third quarter earnings that included a sluggish revenue figure, but the big news for this recovering vendor is that it posted a quarterly profit of about $27 million.

Sales revenue came in at about $2.71 billion, lower than last year's $2.93 billion third quarter, and added to the perception that equipment vendors are in the midst of a sales slump driven largely by carrier consolidation. Though, Nortel actually blamed a manufacturing center snafu for part of its revenue decline.
