STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN -- (Marketwire) -- 03/21/13 --


* Entel Chile selected Ericsson as sole supplier for its 4G/LTE network and expanded partnership for its 2G and 3G networks

* 3G and 4G users to enjoy superior mobile broadband experience and high-performing networks, as well as advanced solutions and services

* Includes multi-standard radio access network, Evolved Packet Core with Evolved Packet Gateway on the SSR 8000 family of Smart Services Routers, operation and support system and backhaul transport design

In response to Chile's data traffic growth and increasing demand for mobile broadband coverage, Entel has extended its strategic partnership with Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) to supply its 2G, 3G and end-to-end IP network for 4G/LTE and will continue joint efforts to enhance customer experience.

Antonio Büchi, CEO of Entel, says: "At Entel, we value innovation and the skills to provide excellence in service; we have made huge efforts in delivering an unbeatable customer experience on mobile broadband and now on 4G. Together with Ericsson, we will be able to provide our customers with superior mobile broadband services and performance, based on a complete end-to-end 3G-LTE solution,"

Nicolas Brancoli, Vice President of Ericsson Latin America, says: "This contract marks another significant milestone for Ericsson and further consolidates our network leadership in the region. Entel's continued trust in us is demonstrated by their selection of Ericsson as the sole supplier for their 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE networks. We're proud and happy to extend our partnership and support Entel's launch of its territory-wide LTE network. Consumers will benefit from an optimal mobile broadband user experience."

Entel and Ericsson have a long-term partnership since 1997, which is based on a common commitment to enhance telecom experience for customers in Chile.

Under the three-year agreement, Ericsson will be the sole supplier of Entel's 2G, 3G and 4G network. The new LTE network includes a multi-standard radio access network supported by RBS 6000 base stations, Evolved Packet Core (EPC) with Evolved Packet Gateway on the SSR 8000 family of Smart Services Routers and SGSN-MME based in the latest MKVIII architecture. The agreement also includes network rollout, integration and support, deployment services, and network management with Ericsson's Operations Support Systems for Radio & Core.

Ericsson is the world leader in LTE and today has more than 130 commercial LTE contracts on six continents, of which over 60 networks have already gone live. LTE commercial networks worldwide currently cover 455 million people, of which 305 million people are covered by LTE networks delivered by Ericsson. Once currently awarded contracts have been deployed, Ericsson will have a more than 50 percent share of the Latin American LTE market in terms of volume.
