What Went Wrong at Nortel
The demise of Canadian telecom giant Nortel Networks (NT) should serve as a stark warning to other tech firms struggling through the economic downturn.
The troubled equipment maker, which has been in Chapter 11 since earlier this year, announced plans to liquidate last month, signaling the beginning of the end for the 127-year old company.
Nokia Siemens Networks has already agreed to buy part of Nortel's wireless business for $650 million, and the Canadian firm plans to sell off the rest of itself.
