(NYSE:JNPR), Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO), Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK), Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW) and Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS). Today's readers may access these reports free of charge - including full price targets, industry analysis and analyst ratings - via the links below. Juniper Networks, Inc. Research Report Juniper Networks is considering making acquisitions to strengthen its security and enterprise business to ready itself for a possible sale or spinoff, according to a report from Reuters. This comes after talks to sell some assets, including security unit NetScreen Technologies, fell through last year. The telecommunications equipment maker failed to attract buyers, including storage provider EMC, on reasons that its enterprise-oriented assets "lacked innovation and growth." However, no investment banks have been hired to assist the review, but Goldman Sachs is most likely to emerge as top candidate considering their history. In other news, Juniper has been chosen by Ping An bank to supply QFX3500 Switches to deliver a low-latency network addressing the need for high-performance business processing and virtual host support.

In addition, Intucell employees will be integrated into Cisco's Service Provider Mobility Group, which enables mobile carriers to plan, configure, manage, optimize, and heal cellular networks automatically, according to real-time changing network demands.

The devices will be used by sales associates in those markets for order processing, equipment validation and market execution improvement. In other news, Nokia's shares went up 20 cents or 5.6 percent at $3.77 after Argus Research upgraded its rating on the stock to "buy" with a new price target of $6. The analysts say the company's economical phones could make a difference for it, particularly the lower and mid-level Lumia smartphones, the Lumia 520 and 720 they unveiled at the recently concluded Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

The acquisition will bolster the company's telecom activities in the Latin American region, building on Bargoa's strong brand, high-quality manufacturing, and flexible design capabilities. However, the agreement is still subject to certain conditions, including approval by Brazil's competition authorities.
