have signed a contract to deploy Ericsson's VDSL2 solution, a
cutting-edge broadband access solution, provided through Ericsson's
EDA 1200. The move will step up the rollout of innovative broadband
services across Germany's largest cities, where users will enjoy
high-speed internet access with downlink speeds up to 50Mbps.

Ericsson's EDA 1200 VDSL2 solution is based on Ethernet technology
and is designed to support large-scale broadband rollouts quickly and
cost-effectively. The future-proof solution supports triple-play
services and underpins Deutsche Telekom's T-Home offering. The VDSL2
platform will also be managed by Ericsson's ServiceOn Access, a
multi-technology network management system allowing end-to-end
management of the high-speed network.

Market Unit Northern Europe at Ericsson, says: "This contract is a
significant milestone in our relationship with Deutsche Telekom and
will provide cutting-edge broadband access technology and exceptional
telecommunications services to Deutsche Telekom's customers."
