Pro versus Con
We have entered a time in our industry where telecom system vendor mergers abound. After every merger, someone from the acquiring company usually makes a statement about how mergers are good for the industry by reducing excess competition and capitalizing on synergies. While they have a point, they are also not talking from the perspective of an uninterested observer. Being of two minds on the subject, I thought it best to set up an informal debate between myselves to try to solve this issue.
