Ericsson Silicon Valley to Relocate to New Campus

Ericsson signed a long-term lease for a new campus in Santa Clara, California that will consolidate its operations in Silicon Valley.  The new Santa Clara Square facility, which is currently under construction by the Irvine Company, will include over 400,000 square feet of workspace for Ericsson in two buildings, located along the Great America/Bowers corridor at Highway 101.

Ericsson plans to move approximately 2,000 employees from its IP division in San Jose and its newly-acquired Mediaroom TV business in Mountain View to the new campus.

Per Borgklint, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit Support Solutions for Ericsson said: "Ericsson's new campus unites our rapidly expanding Silicon Valley workforce and creates an environment that will inspire our employees and customers. So much of our research and development is built on internal and external collaboration. Together with our customers and partners, Ericsson is driving IP, TV and Media innovation, and accelerating development of the media enabled, interoperable and programmable network of tomorrow."

"Over the years, Ericsson's growing presence in Silicon Valley has significantly enhanced our ability to innovate and collaborate with our customers and partners in the region. With our new campus, we're accelerating Ericsson research, development and innovation even further," said Maya Strelar-Migotti, Vice President of Development Unit IP and Broadband and Head of Ericsson Silicon Valley.
Silicon Valley is also a center for Ericsson innovation in TV and Media. As a leader in the convergence of IP, TV and Media, Ericsson is uniquely positioned to develop the technologies that will transform the television and video entertainment experiences seen by millions of people every day.
