STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Sept. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

·         Acquisition ensures long-term support for Ericsson's CDMA customers

·         38 employees of Airvana Network Solutions have joined Ericsson



Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC), a world-leading provider of communications technology

business. The transaction was structured as a stock purchase.

Airvana's approximately 38 EVDO specialists joined Ericsson group. Airvana

and is an important part of the CDMA ecosystem.

Paul Challoner, Vice President, head of CDMA Radio product, says: "Ericsson is
committed to CDMA and to its CDMA customers. We recognize that CDMA will
continue to be an important technology in the operators' networks. We continue
our vertical integration strategy for key CDMA products and further strengthen
our control over product portfolio, ensuring long-term support to our customers
with the ability to better respond to their requirements."

Ericsson and Airvana will jointly seek dismissal of the lawsuit filed by Airvana
in February 2012, against Ericsson in the Supreme Court of the State of New
York, USA.
