Ericsson Selects MapleNet Wireless to sell World-Leading Portfolio of Microwave Radio Systems

8/5/09 - Ericsson Inc. (NASDAQ: ERIC) has signed an agreement with MapleNet Wireless, Inc. to sell Ericsson's portfolio of short- and long-haul microwave radio systems to broadband wireless network operators in the utilities, health care, education and municipal government segments.

MapleNet is an Elkhart, Indiana-based fixed-wireless engineering and installation firm specializing in turn-key wireless systems and tower construction. The company engineers and deploys high-capacity wireless WANs, WISPs and municipal wireless systems. Its corporate focus is on mission-critical high-capacity IP networks for utilities, healthcare, K-12 education, enterprise and government.

"We're pleased to add the world's most widely deployed microwave radio system to our portfolio," said Gene Crusie, president and CEO of MapleNet Wireless. "Ericsson's technology leadership provides our customers with carrier-grade solutions that give them faster implementation options and the flexibility to scale their networks as services and user requirements evolve."

The MapleNet affiliation is part of Ericsson's North America Indirect Channel Program that focuses on the market for PDH, SDH/SONET and IP/Ethernet fixed-wireless broadband networks. MapleNet is one of the first of several channel partners that have signed up for the new program, which will address a large part of the North American microwave market not currently served directly by Ericsson's direct channels.

"Ericsson has gained considerable traction in many segments of the North American microwave radio market since launching our Channel Program," said Thomas Lubeskie, vice president of Broadband Access and IP Solutions for Ericsson in North America. "In partnering with MapleNet, we will be able to combine their award-winning experience in the implementation and deployment of fixed-wireless networks with our world-leading microwave technology to provide customers with a cost-effective and reliable turnkey solution for microwave radio network systems."

Ericsson is the market leader in microwave transmission and has delivered more than 1.8 million microwave radios around the world. The portfolio consists of the well-established MINI-LINK family, strengthened by the Marconi LH trunk radio. These market leading solutions insure that Ericsson's Channel Partners will be able to address the evolution to all-IP networks using PDH, SDH/SONET, and Ethernet-based microwave radio products.
