Ericsson: Ericsson maintains leadership in the Magic Quadrant for LTE Infrastructure 2014

* For fifth year in a row, prominent analyst firm Gartner names Ericsson a
Leader in the LTE industry in its Magic Quadrant report
* High performance end to end LTE offerings, expansive installed base and
global professional services capabilities continue to drive industry
leadership
* Ericsson LTE selected by the top 10 LTE operators, as ranked by LTE
subscriptions worldwide

Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned
Ericsson as an LTE industry leader within the "Leaders" quadrant of its
Gartner 2014 Magic Quadrant for LTE Infrastructure1report for the fifth year
in a row. Gartner, the world's leading information technology research and
advisory company, evaluates end-to-end vendors of LTE equipment (including
Radio, Evolved Packet Core and IMS for voice over LTE) based on their ability
to execute and completeness of vision in the LTE market.

Thomas Norén, Vice President and Head of Product Area Radio, Ericsson says:
"Ericsson LTE is differentiated by its performance, enabled through
innovative products such as Ericsson AIR and Radio Dot System as well as
industry-leading solutions including LTE-A Carrier Aggregation, LTE Broadcast
and our industry-leading VoLTE solution. Ericsson's end to end LTE offering,
large footprint and worldwide service capabilities have enabled us to serve
50 percent of all LTE smartphone traffic worldwide."

Ericsson has signed more than 190 commercial contracts for LTE and Evolved
Packet Core (EPC) in more than 70 countries on six continents, of which more
than 140 networks have already gone live commercially. Ericsson has supported
all the world's first commercial VoLTE launches and is the IMS market leader
with more than 115 IMS contracts worldwide for both fixed- and mobile
accesses. Ericsson is present today in all high traffic LTE markets including
US, Japan, South Korea, Australia and Canada, and has been selected by the
top 10 LTE operators as ranked by LTE subscription worldwide. Today, 50
percent of the world's LTE Smartphone traffic is served by Ericsson networks
which is more than double the traffic of our closest competitor.

Ericsson is the prime driver of open standards and has had the most
significant impact on the LTE specifications released to date. Ericsson
expects to hold 25 percent of all essential patents for LTE, both for TDD and
FDD mode, making it the largest patent holder in the industry.

The company is also the industry leader in managed services, providing managed
services for networks that serve more than one billion subscribers globally.

Ericsson was also recently recognized by the European Patent Office as a
leader in 4G LTE innovation.
