Brighter AB : Brighter and Ericsson in cooperation on technology and business development in mHealth.

Brighter selects Ericsson's Device Connection Platform (DCP) to open up to the
world's mobile network operators to connect their customers to Brighter's
cloud platform The Benefit Loop(TM) and the next generation Brighter One(TM).

Brighter and Ericsson launches a partnership to simplify the connection of
MedTech, such as next-generation Brighter One. This is an integrated blood
glucose meter and injection device for insulin treated diabetics, which logs
blood glucose value, actual volume of injected insulin, as well as other
information relevant to the treatment.

"We are very pleased to partner with Ericsson, which has a world-leading
platform for connecting devices to mobile networks, popularly called the
Internet of Things - "IoT", which includes global device connectivity
management", says Brighter's CEO and founder Truls Sjöstedt.

"The cooperation gives us not only the best technical platform, but also
access to Ericsson's customers - the mobile network operators, who through
Brighter's offer can access a new market segment on their existing customer
base. It's a win-win where all three parties receive the opportunity to
develop their business on a new, exciting and growing market - mHealth."

In The Benefit Loop continuous and valid patient generated data the management
and treatment of their disease is processed together with other relevant
data, with the goal of continuously improving treatment and quality of life.
In addition to the patient getting an easier and more convenient disease
management, Brighter can create great values for a range of other
stakeholders, for example, to improve treatments, plan care, develop drugs
and get reliable information on demographic changes in society.

"We look forward to working with Brighter", says Anders Olin, Vice President,
Product Area Network Functions, Business Unit Cloud&IP at Ericsson. "IoT is
already a core area for Ericsson and mHealth is an area with great future
potential. The service Brighter provides is very interesting for Ericsson
because it can contribute to a substantial increase of connected devices
based on the DCP services Ericsson offers."

"The connection to the mobile network is a central element in the
collaboration with Brighter, and together we will design the implementation
of the infrastructure required for The Benefit Loop. The strong demand for
the new subscription based services among the world's mobile operators have
become increasingly prominent, and we think that Brighter's platform the
Benefit Loop, combined with connected devices such as the new generation of
Brighter One, can create new opportunities for operators to grow outside the
highly competitive telephony and data market. Even though many of the
world's mobile network operators are already using Ericsson's DCP, the
collaboration with Brighter can create the conditions for further deployment.
Brighter also has a strong intellectual property portfolio that provides an
excellent base for the development of mHealth systems."

Brighter works with open APIs so that other connected devices can be
integrated in The Benefit Loop. With Ericsson's broad platform and network
Brighter sees great growth potential as the Benefit Loop will easily be able
to bring together mobile network operators' increasing demand for new service
offerings with the large number of connected devices that are currently
available, but not fully utilized. Devices worldwide will be able to become
part of the Benefit Loop.
