"We needed a technology partner we had confidence in, one who understood our vision and could deliver something within an aggressive timeframe," says Dr. Michael Pezim, Chairman and President of medEra. "We were impressed with Ericsson's technical depth and expertise in the area of Internet Multimedia. They were the obvious choice."
