Ericsson: TeliaSonera and Ericsson go 5G

* Ericsson and TeliaSonera will develop and test selected 5G use-cases and
services based on TeliaSonera's network and Ericsson 5G technology
* Aims at letting TeliaSonera customers in Stockholm and Tallinn experience
5G services already in 2018
* Taps into both companies' strengths in innovation and technology, as well
as understanding of how ICT, digitalization and connectivity impacts
society, business and consumers

Based on TeliaSonera and Ericsson's (NASDAQ: ERIC) common understanding of
market and customer needs, the two companies will develop 5G use-cases and
service scenarios, including both communication and Internet of Things (IoT)
services with the purpose to address new business opportunities. The
partnership will bring 5G services to customers in 2018 by combining the
TeliaSonera network with Ericsson technology.

Johan Dennelind, President and CEO, TeliaSonera, says: "Our ambition is to be
at the cutting edge - at all times - offering our customers and society at
large all the possibilities that technology brings. Stockholm and Tallinn are
two of the most connected cities in the world and now we'll take them to the
next level. 5G will create completely new innovations, ecosystems and great
services to our customers. 5G will also take connected things (IoT) to a new
level. I can't wait to see how Stockholm and Tallinn will embrace 5G."

Hans Vestberg, President and CEO, Ericsson, says: "More and more industries
tap into the value of digitalization and connectivity. 5G will amplify that
as it is designed to be the industrial internet. It will not only be built
for consumers, but also for digitalization of industries and the Internet of
Things. Together with TeliaSonera we launched the first commercial 4G network
in 2009, we will be in the forefront of 5G as well."

Potential 5G applications could include e-health with real time surveillance
of patients and remote treatment; connected cars including critical
communication between vehicles (warnings, support to self-driving cars etc.)
as well as better network performance in terms of capacity, coverage and
power consumption.

Sweden has long been a pioneer ICT-nation and notably Ericsson and TeliaSonera
launched the world's first 4G network in Sweden in 2009. Estonia has
acknowledged the economic importance of a digital society and is one of the
most advanced e-societies in the world.
According to the latest Ericsson Mobility Report, there will be 150 million 5G
subscriptions by the end of 2021.
