Ericsson Lands LTE Deal in Brazil

STOCKHOLM -- To cope with data traffic growth and expand its mobile coverage, Vivo - Brazil's largest operator serving 75.7 million mobile subscribers - has chosen Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) to supply and implement a 4G/LTE network in the North and Mid-Western regions of Brazil, as well as the states of São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Bahia and Sergipe.

Ericsson is selected as supplier for Vivo's 4G/LTE network, which will feature Ericsson's latest RBS 6000 multi-standard radio base stations. This agreement strengthens Ericsson's position as primary telecom infrastructure supplier for Vivo and marks Ericsson's second 4G/LTE win in Brazil.

Eduardo Ricotta, Vice President of Ericsson Latin America and the Caribbean, says: "We are honored to be chosen once again to cooperate with Vivo, supporting their network evolution and innovation. This decision is a result of the positive experiences that the operator has had with the successful implementation of Ericsson's GSM, WCDMA and HSPA technologies in the past. The evolution of mobile networks is a fundamental step toward the advent of the Networked Society in Brazil."
