[Ericsson and Wind to jointly conduct research and development for multimedia services.]

Strategic partnership for the creation of infrastructure and services. Ericsson and Wind have signed a strategic agreement that brings the two groups together to carry out research and development for multimedia services. The agreement was signed in Rome today by Kurt Hellstrom, CEO of Ericsson, and Tommaso Pompei, Wind Group CEO.

The two groups will collaborate on the development of highly innovative mobile telephony services, on convergent fixed-mobile-Internet solutions, and on the development of UMTS applications.

The partnership establishes a series of joint initiatives: - The analysis of market potential, of changes in technology and standards - Research & Development - Resource sharing for common initiatives - 'Service Design' for the creation of innovative services - Marketing activities for jointly developed projects.

Ericsson will provide Wind with support in the development of new services, granting it the role of `Guide Customer.' This gives Wind the opportunity to benefit from advance use of the products and services resulting from the agreement, with particular emphasis on the creation of advanced solutions for fixed-mobile-Internet multimedia services.

The development of support architecture for multimedia services basedon the evolution of existing network platforms has already begun and is one of the partnership's priorities.

"This agreement is further proof that Ericsson is considered a privileged partner by innovative, leading operators capable of achieving market success," announced Kurt Hellstrom, CEO of Ericsson. "We have worked with Wind since its foundation, as the principal supplier of its fixed and 2G and 3G mobile networks, and as the company's main technology partner for the implementation of Italy's first convergent fixed-mobile network. I am extremely pleased to see the partnership go on from here to include the development and deployment of next-generation multimedia services and applications."

Wind CEO Tommaso Pompei declared, "Thanks to the level of excellence provided by a partner such as Ericsson, this agreement will enable us to optimize the process of developing and launching multimedia and convergent fixed-mobile-internet services, thus giving our customers a real advantage."
