Ericsson powers T-Comís broadband rollout with EDA in Germany


August 10, 2006, Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERICY) has signed a frame agreement with Deutsche Telekom and its broadband/fixed-network business unit T-Com. T-Com will use Ericssonís cutting-edge EDA solution for the expansion of its German broadband network.

With EDA, Germanyís leading fixed-network provider will bring its broadband services to areas where DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) has so far been unavailable. The rollout has already started for fiber-to-the-curb areas in Germany.

Under the agreement, Ericsson will deliver all nodes required for the different areas of the access network. Ericsson EDA will be completely integrated into the existing T-Com network architecture, allowing the operator to efficiently increase high-performance broadband coverage nationwide and increase speed up to 6Mbps.

Stefan Kindt, President, Ericsson Germany, says: ďWe are glad to support T-Comís expansion with fast broadband lines into regions where there is no access today. Our solution will also help T-Com to cut operating costs while maintaining the highest service quality.Ē

Ericssonís EDA solution will be deployed in specified access networks without broadband-enabled fiber technology, defined by Germanyís regulator as HYTAS95.

Ericsson EDA combines the highest-quality performance with multi-service functionality based on well-established Ethernet technology. It is the most scalable IP-DSLAM solution on the market. It lets operators develop their business beyond basic IP connectivity, ensuring the ability to offer triple-play services to home and office environments in a way that is cost-efficient and future-proof.

Ericsson EDA is the most widely deployed IP-DSLAM solution globally, with more than 90 networks deployed worldwide.

Ericsson is shaping the future of Mobile and Broadband Internet communications through its continuous technology leadership. Providing innovative solutions in more than 140 countries, Ericsson is helping to create the most powerful communication companies in the world.
