Microsoft would have plans to buy another branch of the Finnish Nokia. Market researcher CCS Insight claims this on the basis of unnamed sources, reports Forbes Monday.

First takeover was a failure

It would be the second time that Microsoft is pulling the wallet for Nokia. In 2013, the tech giant bought the Finnish company’s telephone division.

This time Microsoft would be interested in the network branch of Nokia. This makes equipment that is used in telecom masts of providers, among other things.

With an acquisition, Microsoft would become the first American manufacturer of network equipment. Currently, the parts are mainly made in Europe and Asia.

In addition to Microsoft, Intel would also be interested in the Nokia branch. This puts the company against the Windows maker, with which Intel often collaborates on the computer market.

The acquisition of Nokia’s telephone branch in 2013 did not end well for Microsoft. For two years, the companies tried to make phones together, after which the division was pulled through in 2015. $ 7.6 billion was written off and thousands of jobs were lost.

Nokia phones are now being made again, but that is done by the Chinese HMD Global. The manufacturer has taken out a license to use the Nokia brand.
