ERICSSON EXPANDS C&W COMMUNICATIONS’ CARIBBEAN AND PANAMA NETWORKS
After teaming up with Ericsson, C&W Communications has finished a network expansion in the Caribbean and Panama, addressing increasing data traffic demands by boosting speeds and network performance.
C&W, part of Liberty Global, announced in August that it had signed agreements with Ericsson and Cisco to install three IP Caribbean networks that will be a backbone for IPTV services, fixed operations and business-to-business services.
The expansion includes hardware, software, licensing and services for C&W brands Flow (Caribbean), BTC (Bahamas) and CWP (Panama). All C&W markets in the region will have access to software upgrades and the opportunity to migrate to the Ericsson Software Model.
“Ericsson is committed to providing C&W Communications with excellence in end-user satisfaction and delivering best-in-class results. In the journey that we envision undertaking with C&W, 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 mobile connectivity solutions,” said Clayton Cruz, vice president of Ericsson Latin America and Caribbean.
Carlo Alloni, executive vice president and CTIO of C&W Communications, added: “We are happy to once again partner with Ericsson in this expansion project.”
