Guess the buyer games!
Oracle doesn't have a networking division in the soon-to-be-eaten Sun bizz, maybe they'd like to spend some of Larry's yatch fund on the Enterprise chunk? Might make a good match if he really does want to do the whole stack, and could be a bargain compared to the cost of the Sun purchase.
HP? Not sure, do they have the motive with ProCurve doing pretty well? Nortel do make some blade modules for them, but is that enough to make them buy up what looks like a serious mess. Mind you, Hurd The Butcher does like swinging his axe!
IBM? Well, they do have the cash spare seeing as they didn't splurge on Sun, and it could be used as a way to kick back at CISCO. But I can't see them wanting the whole Nortel pie, again maybe just the Enterprise bit.
I'm not sure if LG have the cash to buy out their shared VOIP phone venture, but there may be some desperate venture capitalists willing to supply funds. I can't really see any of the other phone hardware manufacturers or carriers being too fussed.
Avaya seem to be looking to buy their way out of the recession. They did come out of Lucent so there may be some of the old Goliath's networking genes there that would make them buy the whole kit and caboodle.
