Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson, commonly abbreviated Ericsson, is a Swedish multinational networking and telecommunications company, headquartered in Stockholm (Sweden) [1]. The company specialises in infrastructure, software, and information and telecommunications technology, such as 3G, 4G and 5G equipment and IP and optical transport systems. Ericsson is the inventor of Bluetooth technology. In the past, Ericsson also produced (mobile) telephones. Ericsson also produced cipher machines like the C-37 under licence of the Hagelin Company. 1


The company was founded in 1876 by Lars Magnus Ericsson and is jointly controlled by the Wal­len­berg family through its holding company Investor AB, and the universal bank Handels­banken through its investment company Industrivården. Wallenberg and Handelsbanken acquired their Ericsson shares in the early 1930s, after the fall of the Kreuger empire [1].

  1. The Hagelin Company is often used as a synonym for Boris Hagelin's companies AB Cryptograph (Sweden) and Crypto AG (Switzerland).
