Caricel’s LTE network to be deployed by Comtech and Alepo

The next weapon to be employed by telecommunications providers in Jamaica will be 4-G Long-Term Evolution networks (LTE). Flow, Digicel and now the latest entrant into the war Caricel are lining up to “switch on” their networks to feed an increasing data-hungry market.

Information has emerged that Caricel’s LTE network will be deployed by US telecommunication firms Alepo and Comtech.


“As we prepare to launch our new, superfast LTE broadband services, we are thrilled to work with Alepo as we seek to transform the Jamaican landscape with the introduction of the latest developments in LTE technology,” said Lowell Lawrence, CEO for Caricel Jamaica. “We are confident in the proven LTE leadership, innovation, and deployment expertise that an Alepo Comtech partnership offers.”

Alepo has worked with Jamaica’s market leaders Digicel in the past and will deploy its complete LTE monetization solution, including its advanced policy and charging control (PCRF), convergent charging and billing (OCS), CRM, and home subscriber server (HSS). With 4G LTE competition intensifying in Jamaica, Alepo’s LTE monetization platform enables operators like Caricel to rapidly launch innovative and competitive data offers.

“We are very pleased to partner with Alepo to support the launch of LTE at Caricel Jamaica,” said Jude Panetta, Group Vice President, Strategy and Technology in Comtech’s Government Solutions Segment. “Alepo’s complete LTE solutions and proven industry experience, coupled with its commitment to customer service helped them gain a competitive advantage in Caricel Jamaica’s LTE network rollout.”
