Ericsson is delivering a complete network expansion for Cable & Wireless across its three operations in the Caribbean and Panama.
The expansion includes hardware, software and licensing services for the brands Flow (Caribbean), BTC (Bahamas) and CWP (Panama), all of them now part of the Liberty Global group.
In addition, the network expansion will provide all Cable & Wireless markets across the Caribbean and Panama with access to software upgrades and migration to the Ericsson Software Model. The company’s subscribers will benefit from a network capable of supporting advanced technologies and high-speed features such as over-the-top (OTT) platforms, which are driving data demand across the region.
“Ericsson is committed to providing C&W Communications with excellence in end-user satisfaction and delivering best-in-class results. Ericsson will provide solid guidance and support throughout all of the project’s critical phases, enabling C&W to provide its customers with the best in connectivity solutions,” said Clayton Cruz, VP, Ericsson Latin America and Caribbean.
“We are happy to once again partner with Ericsson in this network expansion project across all of our markets. Considering the clear trend in the growth of subscribers, mobile data and smartphone usage, C&W’s key objective is to deploy a mobile network with world-class quality, performance and operational convenience in order to exceed our customers’ expectations,” said Carlo Alloni, EVP and CTIO, C&W Communications.
