Centennial Communications has chosen Nortel to replace and upgrade its existing wireless network in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands with an CDMA2000 1X network. Nortel will deploy both core (switching) and access (radio base stations base station controllers) network equipment for Centennial. The initial phase of the project is expected to be complete by July 2005.
"We are relying on Nortel's superior technology and extensive expertise in deploying CDMA networks to ensure we have an infrastructure that can meet the vast demand for wireless voice and data services in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands today, while also giving us the capacity to continue to grow and expand our service offerings in the future," said Tom Cogar, chief technology officer, Centennial.
Centennial also selected Nortel in 2003 to deploy a CDMA 1X network in the Dominican Republic.
The new network being deployed by Centennial will be fully 1xEV-DO ready."
