Schaumburg-based SAC Wireless has agreed to be acquired by Nokia Networks.

The telecom equipment company, founded in 1996, handles infrastructure design, installation and management services. Its client list includes major telcom companies such as AT&T, Alcatel-Lucent, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon. SAC Wireless employs about 450 people and has nine regional offices in the U.S.

“With SAC Wireless’ capabilities complementing our own in-house expertise, we are well positioned to bring enhanced quality and increased end-to-end delivery efficiency to our customers. No other infrastructure provider is offering this level of proven services,” said Ricky Corker, executive vice president of North America for Nokia Networks.

The addition of SAC Wireless will help Nokia Networks deal with increased demand for 4G LTE upgrades, new antenna systems and bandwidth issues.
