The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) announced that

in Las Vegas, Nevada.


Ericsson is a global leader in mobile broadband and
communications technologies and services and we are thrilled to welcome Hans
Vestberg to the CES keynote stage,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CEA.


Ericsson has grown into a market leader with its
equipment powering broadband networks for more than 1,000 service providers in
180 countries. With more than forty percent of the world’s mobile traffic
passing through Ericsson’s equipment, this dynamic company will share its
vision of our mobile broadband future,” Shapiro added.

Since joining Ericsson
in 1991, Vestberg has been instrumental in developing the company’s vision of a
Networked society where everything that benefits from being connected, will be
connected. A new mindset is emerging where the primary concern is not about
having access; it is what you do with it.

Mercedes-Benz’s Dieter Zetsche as confirmed keynote speakers for the 2012 CES.
