STOCKHOLM -- Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) today completed its acquisition of substantially all of Nortel's CDMA business and LTE assets in North America. With this acquisition, Ericsson enhances its leading global telecommunications equipment supplier position and will further its quest to bring high-speed data connectivity to people on the move.

The Nortel acquisition, on the heels of important breakthrough contract wins for Ericsson in North America, positions Ericsson as the leading provider of telecommunications technology and services in the United States and Canada.

"Separately, our two companies played leading roles in freeing voice telephony from its fixed limitations," said Hans Vestberg, Ericsson's incoming president and chief executive officer. "Together, we will do the same for broadband - make it mobile and bring the benefits of high-speed data connectivity to the majority of the world's population".
