Provides an evolution path to Alcatel-Lucent’s lightRadio product family
Wireless services provider America Movil has selected Alcatel-Lucent to provide infrastructure for its LTE/4G network rollout in Latin America.
The deployment will commence with America Movil’s operator Claro launching high-speed mobile broadband services to subscribers in Puerto Rico and the Claro’s service offering will use Alcatel-Lucent’s LTE offering, including its lightRadio portfolio of products.
The Alcatel-Lucent offering deployed by Claro in Puerto Rico also provides a future evolution path to ensure that Claro continues to offer state of the art network connectivity in Puerto Rico.
In addition, the new offering also provides an evolution path to Alcatel-Lucent’s lightRadio product family that will reduce operating costs, technical complexity and power consumption in mobile broadband networks.
Alcatel-Lucent Latin America president Osvaldo Di Campli said through Alcatel-Lucent’s experience of designing, delivering and operating LTE networks with customers in every major geography, Alcatel-Lucent has developed unrivalled domain expertise around all facets of 4G deployments.
"We look forward to sharing this knowledge with America Movil as LTE continues its roll-out across Latin America. We are excited to see all the benefits – economic, social and otherwise – that will result from the delivery of LTE to America Movil’s subscribers," said Campli.
