Ericsson Completes LTE Deployment on Cayman Islands
Published on: 16th May 2014
Cayman Islands based mobile network Lime has completed the roll out of its new LTE network. The network was installed by Ericsson as sole supplier covering 100% of the islands.
A 4G LTE mobile data service will also complement users of the latest smartphones like the iPhone 5, which Lime has the exclusive rights to provide in the Caribbean. Ericsson has also expanded Lime's existing HSPA network, which now covers 100% of the islands.
Since the upgrade took place, average data traffic on Lime's mobile network has increased by 68 times. Over the last 18 months the company said that there has been a significant increase in video, streamed TV and social networking usage.
Bill McCabe, CEO, Lime Cayman Islands, says: "At Lime, we value innovation and the skills to provide excellence in services; we have made a huge effort to deliver an unbeatable mobile data customer experience. Together with Ericsson, we are able to provide our customers with superior mobile data services and performance based on a complete LTE solution."
The solution included the deployment of a new Evolved Packet Core (EPC) and new HSS (Home Subscriber Server), as well as new radio base stations for LTE services.
