EJL Wireless Research Comments on Ericsson Q3 Guidance and Impact on Overall Wireless Infrastructure BTS Market

Overall Industry Remains Healthy From a Shipment Demand Perspective

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - October 22, 2007) - "The recent announcement by Ericsson on softness in the wireless BTS infrastructure equipment market is a small speed bump for an industry known for its lumpiness in deployments and upgrades," says founder and President, Earl Lum.

"Our BTS contract analysis for Q3 certainly has indicated softening trends for Q3 for the industry overall but we highlight the $3.3 billion that Ericsson booked in India as a clear example of how the company continues to win large contracts," says Lum. A complete analysis of all of the OEM contracts awarded is available on the company's website.

"We continue to believe that for the wireless infrastructure ecosystem servicing Ericsson and the industry, hardware equipment demand remains within our current projections," says Lum.
