* Ericsson's cloud technology leadership to be showcased at IDF15 in San
Francisco
* As a world leading adopter of Intel Rack Scale Architecture (RSA) Ericsson
presents 2016 plans and vision for HDS 8000, software defined datacenters
and cloud
* Announcing the first collaboration on implementing Intel RSA enabled
datacenters with South Korean operator SK Telecom

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) will demonstrate key technologies from its cloud
infrastructure portfolio at the Intel Developer Forum 2015 (IDF15), an
industry and media event held August 18-20 in San Francisco, US.

The event will showcase Ericsson's cloud technology leadership to a broad
industry and media audience, and will highlight the strength of the company's
open developer eco-system including strategic partners Apcera, Guardtime,
Cleversafe and Intel.

Anders Lindblad, Head of Business Unit Cloud&IP, says: "Cloud technology is
rapidly disrupting the ICT industry, and we see IDF15 as a unique opportunity
to engage with decision-makers and developers in this critical area."

"We look forward to showing Ericsson's industry-leading cloud portfolio.
Combining our Networked Society vision and long experience of designing,
deploying and running the world's most advanced communication systems, makes
us a highly relevant ICT change-maker as the transformation of the industry
accelerates," says Lindblad.

At the event, Ericsson will also announce a close cooperation with South
Korean operator SK Telecom. The partnership will establish software-defined
data centers built on Ericsson's HDS 8000 datacenter system and Intel® Rack
Scale Architecture, leading to the creation of automated and TCO efficient
hyperscale cloud infrastructure.

"RSA is the key technology to make the cloud extremely scalable, flexible and
TCO efficient. SK Telecom believes this partnership will accelerate SK
Telecom's software-defined data center vision to be realized," says Alex
Jinsung Choi, Chief Technology Officer at SK Telecom

451 Research concludes that with the Ericsson's HDS 8000, Ericsson is just
doing what everyone else is talking about. What is very different is its
timing: real systems this year, literally many years ahead of the crowd."
according to Peter Christy, Research Director, Networking at 451 Research.

In support of openness in telecom transformation, Ericsson has recently joined
the Intel® Network Builders community and will show innovative network
functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN)
solutions. The members of the Intel Network Builders program collaborate on
accelerating network transformation through the adoption of SDN and NFV.

First held in 1987, the Intel Developers Forum is a biannual or triannual
event that gathers developers and technologists from across the ICT industry.
Ericsson is a gold sponsor of IDF15.
