Ericsson: Telefônica Vivo selects Ericsson for Brazilian digital city project

* Ericsson will be the prime integrator for the smart parking and smart
lighting in the Águas de São Pedro digital city project in São Paolo,
Brazil
* Ericsson is facilitating systems integration to deliver and integrate these
smart solutions across Telefônica Vivo's network

Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) has been chosen by Telefônica Vivo to integrate the
smart parking and smart lighting for its digital city project in Águas de São
Pedro, Brazil. Collaborating with leading technology partners, Ericsson will
be responsible for providing smart lighting and smart parking solutions and
for system integration. The design, installation and rollout of the project
are all included in the scope of the agreement, as is responsibility for
managed services, including operations and maintenance, once it has been
rolled out.

As part of the smart lighting project, Ericsson will deliver and install a
solution enabling the public energy system to remotely control and monitor
the energy consumption of each light point, switching lighting on and off
where necessary.

Remote monitoring will report any faults that occur and allow for remote
maintenance to be carried out, leading to savings and cost effective
operation as well as contributing to environmental sustainability.

Antonio Carlos Valente, president of Telefônica Group says: "The digital city
project in Águas de São Pedro is one of our most exciting initiatives in
Brazil. We are happy to continue our close relationship with Ericsson around
the globe to deliver this important project in Brazil."

Eduardo Ricotta, Vice President, Latin America at Ericsson says: "The
explosive growth of cities and the rapid uptake of broadband are happening at
the same time as the world faces economic and environmental challenges. To
ensure that our cities become creative, connected and sustainable is a
challenge but also a tremendous opportunity. The smart parking project is a
fantastic example of one such opportunity and an example of what we can do in
the future, especially at Águas de São Pedro, the first digital city in
Brazil."

Under the smart parking project, Ericsson will deliver and install smart
parking sensors across public parking areas in the municipality of Águas de
São Pedro. The sensors will detect whether a parking spot is vacant or not,
and it is hoped that the system will cut down on both traffic congestion and
carbon emissions. The rollout of the project is already underway.

the world's leading operators, providing communication, information and
entertainment solutions, with presence in Europe and Latin America.

The company has one of the most international profiles in the sector,
