On the vendor side, this was highlighted by the big deals Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO) and Ericsson (Nasdaq: ERIC) completed. On the service provider side, Consolidated Communications (Nasdaq: CNSL), which acquired SureWest, and Zayo, which grabbed AboveNet, led the way, although there were a number of other notable smaller deals as well.
