Nokia on Wednesday agreed to acquire U.S.-based network deployment services provider SAC Wireless.
The Finnish equipment vendor said the deal enables it to tackle problems faced by operators in areas including site acquisition, applying for permits, and sub-contracting, among others.
Financial terms were not disclosed. Nokia expects to close the deal in the third quarter, subject to regulatory approval.
"Once the transaction has been completed, it will help us increase market share in the network implementation space," said Ricky Corker, EVP of North America for Nokia Networks, in a statement.
"With SAC Wireless' capabilities complementing our own in-house expertise, we are well positioned to bring enhanced quality and increased end-to-end delivery efficiency to our customers," he said.
Meanwhile, in a separate statement, Nokia announced its Here mapping division has completed that acquisition of Medio, a company also based in the U.S. that provides real-time predictive analytics.
Nokia agreed to purchase Medio in June.
"With Medio's predictive analytics capabilities we are strengthening our platform to deliver more personal experiences in cars, on mobile devices and to businesses," said Michael Halbherr, CEO of Here.
"We believe that the focused investments we're making today will enable us to take maps far beyond where they are today to become a valuable source of location intelligence," he said.
