Nokia Siemens Networks will have its operational headquarters in the metropolitan area of Helsinki, Finland, and will have a strong regional headquarters in Munich, Germany, where three of the future five divisions of the new company will be based.

The remaining Wireless Modules business will be integrated into the Siemens group Automation and Drives as of 1 October 2006.
