      Ericsson : Ericsson to deliver mobile backhaul for T-Mobile Poland

  *New mobile backhaul solution from Ericsson serves 15 million T-Mobile
    customers in Poland
  *Ericsson to provide mobile backhaul that enables significant increase in
    network capacity, scalability and operational flexibility
  *Mobile backhaul ensures IP connectivity all the way through the network
    enabling continued running of 2G and 3G networks and future LTE services

The use of mobile broadband is spreading rapidly in Poland. In 2011 mobile
broadband usage was 55 percent, a steady and significant increase from 20
percent in 2009. The increase in mobile broadband users has challenged network
operators to provide significantly more capacity, while maintaining network
performance. With this solution from Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC), Polska Telefonia
Cyfrowa S.A. (PTC), operator of T-Mobile brand, can address the increasing
demand for data.

Ericsson will supply T-Mobile with its industry-leading MINI-LINK SP Packet
aggregation nodes, Ericsson SPO 1400 Packet Optical Transport and IP Transport
network management system products. T-Mobile will gain simple and
cost-effective network migration from TDM (Time Division Multiplexing) to
high-performance packet networking based on MPLS-TP (Multiprotocol Label
Switching Transport Profile) with a complete end-to-end managed mobile
backhaul solution from Ericsson. Ericsson is also providing deployment,
support and spare parts management services as part of the solution.

Anders Runevad, President of RWCE at Ericsson, says: "PTC, operator of
T-Mobile brand, is an exceptional partner for Ericsson. Our companies have
cooperated together for 17 years. The mobile backhaul migration provides
superior network quality, through a simple and scalable solution. It offers
speed and reliability and meets the subscriber demands for more bandwidth and
the best possible broadband experience for our customers."
