    As a warm up for Thanksgiving festivities, Huawei pulled off its ninth Global Mobile Broadband Forum, an extraordinary two-day event at ExCeL London with a total of 2,200 attendees and participants, 57% more than last year’s event, which was also in London. Although it’s not yet at the level of the SalesForce.com event that gathered 170,000 attendees in San Francisco last September—one-fifth of the city’s population—Huawei remains by far the only company in telecoms that has the capability, resources, and capacity to organize such a big event with a C-level league of speakers.

    US telecommunications equipment maker CommScope will acquire Arris, in a $7.4B deal valued at $5.69 billion, with the difference comprised of CommScope’s assumption of Arris’s debt. As part of the deal, the Carlyle Group will make a $1M equity investment in CommScope for an approximate 16% stake in the new company. CommScope’s CEO Eddie Edwards has claimed the two companies’ product lines are complementary, and that the combined company will “enable end-to-end wired and wireless communications infrastructure solutions that neither company could otherwise achieve on its own.” The deal is expected to close in the first half of 2019.
