Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) will exhibit and present at TM Forum Live! 2016, highlighting the latest Transformative IT strategies that empower telco CIOs who favor change.

Through keynote presentations, panel sessions, demonstrations, and Catalyst initiatives, Ericsson will lead a critical discussion around Transformative IT-driven opportunities.
