An interesting point is that in Germany the big 3 all bought Redback.
Vodafone, German Telekom and Telefonica all bought them. Back then i was

bought it they had a deep quality dip while trying to push all the 
mobile stuff into the Smartedge. It got better afterwards. I agree that
Ericsson is a difficult company to deal with ...
