Ericsson: Ericsson selected as hyperscale cloud and NFV partner by XL Axiata

* Ericsson to transform XL Axiata's network through deployment of
disaggregated architecture
* Ericsson to deliver full-stack cloud solution including Ericsson Hyperscale
Datacenter System 8000 built with Intel ® Rack Scale Architecture
* Deployment meets XL Axiata's need for a standardized multivendor
virtualization environment and will enable innovative services to be
brought to market more rapidly

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) has been selected by XL Axiata, a leading
telecommunications operator in southeast Asia, to transform its network
through the deployment of disaggregated architecture.

Ericsson will deploy its full stack cloud solution, including the Ericsson
Hyperscale Datacenter System 8000 based onIntel ® Rack Scale Architecture,
and virtual network functions (VNFs) as part of XL Axiata's cloud evolution
and realization of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).

As part of the first phase of the transformation, Ericsson Service Aware
Policy Controller (SAPC) and Traffic Monitoring and Analysis (TMA) VNFs will
also be deployed.

Common management of the VNFs will be enabled by the Ericsson Network Manager,
which supports management of both physical and virtual network functions,
offers a common view of network resources and services across multiple
network technologies, and provides lifecycle management for VNFs. This
represents a key step for XL Axiata's cloud transformation, since both IT and
network applications will be deployed in the same environment.

The solution offers open NFV architecture and fulfils XL Axiata's needs for a
standardized multivendor virtualization environment that will enable the
operator to bring new services to market faster. Adopting Ericsson Hyperscale
Datacenter System 8000 with carrier-grade software will also allow XL Axiata
to optimize its NFV and IT infrastructure through disaggregated and
software-defined infrastructure that supports more flexible and responsive
resource utilization.

Dian Siswarini, President Director, XL Axiata, says: "Through this hyperscale
cloud initiative with Ericsson, we look forward to putting NFV and cloud to
practical use. We will accelerate the delivery of innovative services by
exposing network assets, while improving efficiency and reducing risk in how
networks are built and operated to meet the needs of the future."

Thomas Jul, Head of Ericsson Indonesia and Timor Leste, says: "This is an
important milestone in our long standing partnership with XL Axiata, marking
a significant step in the cloud evolution we are working together to realize
for XL Axiata. We will continue to strengthen the partnership by leveraging
Ericsson's leadership in both cloud and NFV."

Ericsson Hyperscale Datacenter System 8000 is a new generation of datacenter
system using disaggregated hardware architecture for better resource
utilization. The initial focus is on complete operator cloud transformation
for NFV, IT and commercial cloud operations.
