Framfab and Ericsson develop separate versions of Brikks

Framfab and Ericsson develop separate versions of Brikks After the work with the first version of Brikks, Framfab and Ericsson have decided to continue the development of the software separately. Since Framfab and Ericsson in the long term have different goals for the product, they have come to the conclusion that they would benefit if they offered the market separately developed versions. "The decision to discontinue the development after the first version of the software has been made in mutual understanding with Ericsson, since we have noticed that there is a market for separate products. We want to stress that there are no disagreements concerning the ownership of the source code", says Mattias Söderhielm, VP Software, Framfab. This decision only concerns the development of Brikks and does not affect the cooperation between Ericsson and Framfab in general. The Brikks related revenues from Ericsson have been neglectible during the second and third quarter this year. Nor will this decision affect Framfab’s possibilities to develop and license Brikks. The Framfab-developed version of Brikks is a software for multi-access portals in both mobile, broadband and narrowband environments, that Framfab already has implemented for the Italian mobile operator BLU and Bredbandsbolaget. Brikks is also the basis in the system Framfab will build for one of the leading German telecom companies, VIAG Interkom.
