Ericsson: Ericsson partners with HP to drive mobile networking

* Bilateral reseller agreement opens up enterprise market opportunities
beyond Ericsson's carrier-grade Wi-Fi and provides go-to-market
opportunities for Ericsson's industry-leading small cells through HP's
global enterprise channels
* Leverages HP's acquisition of Aruba Networks through integration of HP's
enterprise WLAN technology into Ericsson RBS 6402 picocell

Global leaders in the mobile and enterprise industries, Ericsson
(NASDAQ:ERIC), Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ) and Aruba Networks, an HP company,
are joining forces to drive innovation in mobile networking. The companies
will bring to market a ground-breaking set of Wi-Fi and LTE solutions
providing customers with ubiquitous voice and data connectivity.

There is a rapidly growing need to maximize the benefits of licensed and
unlicensed spectrum operating together in the Enterprise. To capture this
business opportunity, Ericsson is incorporating Aruba's 802.11ac enterprise
Wi-Fi technology into the Ericsson RBS 6402 indoor picocell. Carrying the
Ericsson brand, the solution will work seamlessly with the rest of the Aruba
Wi-Fi portfolio and with the Ericsson radio access network to deliver users
pervasive connectivity indoors.

Ericsson and HP have also signed bilateral resale agreements. Ericsson can
offer Aruba's enterprise Wi-Fi and connectivity solutions along with
Ericsson's portfolio of mobility solutions and global services to customers
worldwide. Additionally, these agreements allow HP to resell Ericsson's
industry-leading licensed band indoor small cell solutions, and bring the
full value of licensed and unlicensed mobile networking to HP's global base
of enterprise customers.

The partners intend to collaborate in joint market initiatives to address
opportunities for indoor coverage and mobility for enterprises and operators,
making effective use of both licensed and unlicensed technologies and
frequency bands.

Antonio Neri,Executive Vice President and General Manager for HP's Enterprise
Group, says: "This expansion of our existing partnership with Ericsson will
allow HP to deliver more solutions to meet our customers' growing needs for
productivity in the workplace. Ericsson's global scale and market leadership
in building mobile infrastructures with operators worldwide is an ideal
complement to Aruba Networks' enterprise-wide networking solutions.Together
we expect to transform the way mobile networks are deployed in order to stay
ahead of the pace of mobile requirements."

Arun Bansal, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit Radio, Ericsson,
says: "HP and Ericsson already have a successful track record working
together. With the addition of Aruba Networks, HP has leap-frogged
competitors, combining end-to-end enterprise solutions and global reach with
innovation and market share. It's a powerful combination and a perfect
complement to Ericsson's leadership in mobile infrastructure as we evolve to
address new operator and enterprise opportunities."
