Ericsson: Ericsson transforms network capabilities for Telenor Asia

* Ericsson and Telenor Group sign five-year network enhancement contract
* Agreement covers deployment of 4G/LTE networks and transformation of 2G and
3G networks in Thailand, Bangladesh and Myanmar
* dtac, Grameenphone and Telenor Myanmar subscribers to enjoy improved
smartphone performance, including faster web browsing and downloads

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) has signed a five-year contract with Telenor Group for
the design and implementation of 4G/LTE networks and the transformation of
existing 2G and 3G networks in Thailand, Bangladesh and Myanmar.

The agreement includes hardware, software and services. Ericsson will install
its multi-standard radio base station, the RBS 6000, which supports 3G and
4G/LTE in a single cabinet. Indoor small cell solutions will also be
deployed, including the Radio Dot System and RBS 6402 to address the
requirement of reliable mobility, security and performance in challenging
indoor environments. Around the world, the small cell base station RBS 6402
is delivering speeds of up to 300 Mbps, with deployments in less than 10
minutes, enabled by self- organizing network (SON) features. In Radio Dot
System deployments, mobile data throughput has improved by up to 5 times,
dropped calls have been reduced to zero, and installation times are as low as
4 minutes per Dot.

In addition, micro radio base station RBS 6501 will also add extra capacity
and seamless mobility in selected outdoor spaces.

The transformation will improve network capacity and enhance mobile broadband
experiences for dtac (4G/LTE), Grameenphone (2G/3G) and Telenor Myanmar
(2G/3G) subscribers. Consumers will enjoy improved smartphone and network
performance, including faster web browsing and downloads.

dtac, Grameenphone and Telenor Myanmar are part of the Telenor Group, which is
headquartered in Oslo, Norway.

Operators such as Telenor Group are looking to enable digital transformation
of societies by extending internet connectivity to as many people as
possible. By teaming with Ericsson, operators are able to bring vital
infrastructure, new services and products that empower people, business and
society.

Sam Saba, Head of Region South East Asia and Oceania, Ericsson, says: "This
contract clearly demonstrates Ericsson's technology and services leadership,
and further extends our long-standing relationship with Telenor Group.

"Ericsson's 3G and 4G/LTE network solutions will enable dtac, Telenor Myanmar
and Grameenphone to deliver unique experiences for people, business and
society, thus shaping and accelerating the Networked Society in Thailand,
Bangladesh and Myanmar."

Ericsson is today present in all high-traffic LTE markets, including the US,
Japan and South Korea, and is ranked first for handling global LTE traffic -
40 percent of the world's mobile traffic is carried over Ericsson networks.
Ericsson is number one in LTE market share within the world's top 100 cities.
More than 220 Ericsson LTE RAN and evolved Packet Core networks have been
delivered worldwide, of which 170 are live commercially.
