Ericsson: MTN group selects Ericsson Order to Cash Suite

* Ericsson Order to Cash suite consisting of Charging System, Ericsson Multi
Mediation and Multi Activation software will be deployed in all MTN
networks.
* Ericsson will also provide Support Services and Managed Services for the
suite
* The new Business Support Systems will enable MTN to optimize service
delivery, and enhance customer experience
* The agreement supports MTN's ambitions to be leaders in the Networked
Society

MTN, a leading telecommunications company with presence in 22 countries in
Africa and the Middle East, signed a multi-year agreement with Ericsson
(NASDAQ: ERIC) to implement, support and manage Ericsson's Order to Cash
suite. This solution enables MTN to standardize the customer experience of
its products and services in all the markets it is operational.

As part of the agreement, Ericsson will be responsible for the replacement of
all legacy infrastructure with its new Charging System, Ericsson Multi
Activation and Ericsson Multi Mediation across all MTN operations, enabling
customers to activate new services more efficiently and to better monitor
their data cost and usage. It will also enable MTN to respond more
efficiently to customer related complaints.

Ericsson will support, operate and manage this suite of products to ensure the
benefits are realized across all MTN operations. Ericsson's Managed Services
will allow for an agile launch of services, thus increasing MTN's capacity
for innovation and speed that are essential for a sustainable and successful
business differentiation.

Jyoti Desai, Group CTIO MTN said: The new Ericsson Charging System will enable
a host of new services like catalogue orchestrated charging, flexible refill
and community charging, among several other different voice and data
offerings for MTN's over 220 million prepaid customers. Multi Mediation
supports the retrieval and processing of user data from all network nodes, so
that such data can be made available to the relevant IT back-end systems and
billed in real time. Multi Activation provides MTN with fully automated
real-time fulfillment capabilities.

Seckin Arikan, Vice President and Head of Global Accounts MTN said: "Operators
need to be fast, flexible and in control to deliver great experiences to
their customers, operate efficiently and deliver innovative new offerings to
stand out in today's marketplace. Our end-to-end solutions help operators
meet these challenges by helping them quickly develop new products, new
packaging as well as pricing models that target specific user preferences,
reducing time-to-market. This agreement not only reinforces our partnership
with MTN but places them in prime position to fulfill their strategic
ambitions. Together, we will continue to develop innovative offerings
suitable for all MTN operations".

Ericsson has been a long-term partner for MTN, and has provided the operator
with real-time charging capabilities since 1996. MTN was one of the first
customers to introduce Ericsson Pre-Paid Systems in all Africa and Middle
East Operations. Today Ericsson's charging and billing solutions support more
than 2 billion subscribers worldwide.
