Where are the deals?

In light of the flurry of online deals recently – Ask Jeeves-Interactive, MemberWorks-Lavalife – it makes you wonder if anything will happen in the telecom sector. Why have Nortel, Cisco and Lucent have been inactive? They've certainly made their share of acquisitions in the past, although Nortel's John Roth probably went a little deal-crazy in the late-1990s. I guess they must be a little gun shy but you have to wonder if they have got all their bases covered, especially with IP emerging go quickly.
