Enea Launches Breakthrough Solution for Converged Mobile Multimedia

Stockholm, Sweden and Barcelona, Spain. 3GSM World Congress, February 12, 2007-Enea (Stockholm: ENEA.ST), a world leading provider of network software and services, today announced a breakthrough solution to two of the biggest challenges facing the future of mobile video - service integrity and availability. The Enea Accelerator Platform(TM) enables network equipment and service providers to deliver the always-on connectivity and enhanced quality of service demanded by consumers of third screen multimedia services like VoIP, IPTV, broadband Internet access, gaming, and streaming video.

At 3GSM this year, Enea, together with partners Kontron, MontaVista and Tail-f, will roll out the first components of its new Accelerator Platform, which is already in the early stages of deployment at a leading provider of mobile multimedia services. Enea will demonstrate the new platform and provide an advance look at the future of network convergence at its "Screening Room", which is located in Suite HS08 in the Gallery at the top of Hall 3 overlooking the central FIRA courtyard.

"Third screen consumers will not tolerate low-quality connections the way that they tolerate dropped calls today," said Virginia Walker, senior vice president of corporate strategy and marketing at Enea. "They expect continuous, anytime, anywhere connections with high-quality, uninterrupted music, games, video conferencing, and television, all delivered over the mobile third screen. Enea's Accelerator Platform provides the foundation for these reliable, high-quality connections," added Walker. "Our technology is already deployed in half of the world's new mobile phones and basestations. And we are the only vendor that provides a proven software framework for deploying high-availability, high-quality, converged third screen services that span multiple product segments across network infrastructure and mobile handsets."

The Enea Accelerator Platform is a carrier class software platform for quickly building high-availability, highly differentiated network equipment that delivers uninterrupted, high-quality multimedia services over IP networks. Featuring best-in-class networking, supervision, fault management, device management, and database management services, this flexible, reusable platform enables equipment makers to build scalable, upgradeable, "five nines" equipment that greatly reduces CAPEX and OPEX for service providers.

The Enea Accelerator Platform is the first carrier class platform that scales from handsets to network infrastructure equipment.
