AT&T, Ericsson Get $450-Million Cellular Order: AT&T Corp.'s McCaw Cellular unit said it placed the order for wireless communications equipment with its parent AT&T and Sweden's LM Ericsson telecommunications group, giving the two an early jump on rival telephone equipment makers. The order from Kirkland, Wash.-based McCaw was one of the most significant deals to date to provide equipment for the next generation of wireless communications, known as personal communications services.
