Ericsson: Bouygues Telecom chooses Voice over LTE from Ericsson for its 4G network in France

* HD voice call quality, shorter call set-up times and video calling for
Bouygues Telecom's customers
* Users can make calls and use 4G mobile data services at the same time
* Ericsson to deliver end-to-end Voice over LTE (VoLTE) capabilities and full
IMS network integration in a multi-vendor environment

Bouygues Telecom has chosen Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) to launch a new era in
mobile voice communications with the introduction of VoLTE services to its
live, commercial 4G/LTE network in France.

The service will bring major benefits to Bouygues Telecom customers, with HD
(high definition) voice conversations that are significantly clearer than
conventional mobile voice services, shorter call set-up times and enriched
IP-based communication services such as video calling over LTE. Customers
will have the flexibility to make HD voice calls and use 4G/LTE mobile data
services at the same time.

Ericsson has been selected to provide key components of the IMS solution for
VoLTE including the Ericsson Multimedia Telephony Application Server Ericsson
Session Border Gateway, Ericsson Home Subscriber Server and Ericsson User
Profile Gateway, as well as software upgrades to the installed base of
Ericsson LTE radio access network and Ericsson Evolved Packet Core.

Based on its local expertise, international experience and extensive
credentials in this area, Ericsson has also been chosen by Bouygues Telecom
to complete the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) network integration in its
multi-vendor environment and thereby guarantee network reliability and
service quality. This large-scale project is the first step towards providing
enriched communication services, which are now being tested or planned for
the future.

Jean-Paul Arzel, Head of the Networks Division, Bouygues Telecom, says:
"Bouygues Telecom is proving the capabilities of its 4G/LTE network to
support the latest advanced technologies and services. Commercial service
roll-out is scheduled for 2015 and our network will be carrying the first
voice and video calls over LTE later this year."

Franck Bouétard, Head of Ericsson France, says: "Ericsson has been a partner
of Bouygues Telecom for many years, in particular for 4G/LTE technology. With
the combination of our leadership in both technology and services we are now
supporting Bouygues Telecom in its latest move to improve network and service
quality for French customers."

4G/LTE is a key technology for mobile data services and is taking off rapidly.
According to the Ericsson Mobility Report more than 65% of the world's
population will be covered by LTE in 2019.

Bouygues Telecom is an industry leader with a 4G network covering 69 percent
of the French population.

Ericsson is the IMS market leader having signed more than 115 commercial IMS
contracts worldwide for both fixed- and mobile access, of which around 70 IMS
systems are live running commercial traffic. In addition, Ericsson has around
280 IMS test and trial contracts. Having launched the world's first
commercial IMS system in 2005, Ericsson has gained extensive IMS deployment
knowledge and experience.
