Ericsson is one of three major vendors left following a wave of consolidation that last year saw its Finnish rival Nokia Oyj swallowing up Alcatel-Lucent, making the French vendor the latest victim of increased competition from China’s Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. and ZTE Corp. Their entrance over the past 15 years “fundamentally changed the industry,” Ekholm said, and a string of telecom pioneers, such as Siemens AG, Nortel Networks Corp. and Motorola Inc. exited the scene, leaving Nokia,...
In a gold mine hundreds of feet below the boreal forests of northern Sweden, Ericsson AB is seeking the answer to an existential question: Does anyone really want 5G wireless service? The troubled telecommunications equipment maker, suffering as sales of 4G technology falter, has bet its future on the fifth generation of mobile, which is expected to link billions of devices to the internet with connections fast enough to transfer a feature film in less than a second.
The Finnish manufacturer predicted a prolonged slump for the industry, sending its shares down as much as 16 percent -- the most since 2012, when it was still struggling with an ailing handset business that was later sold to Microsoft Corp. Now focusing on networks, Nokia faces a tough market as phone carriers are largely done with building their newest systems, and time isn’t ripe yet to start spending on the next-generation, so-called 5G technology.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
