C&W Seychelles to boost performance of its 2G, 3G and LTE-Advanced networks with TEOCO

Cable & Wireless Seychelles has selected TEOCO’s ASSET network planning tool to improve the performance of its 2G, 3G and LTE-Advanced mobile networks.

The TEOCO ASSET network planning tool is a radio solution for boosting capacity and coverage of mobile networks, and also for improving cell positioning and parameter planning.

The operator was looking for a network planning solution with the capability to integrate with the 3G dual carrier technology it uses for its HSPA network and support LTE-Advanced to deliver optimal performance.

Cable & Wireless will use ASSET network planning tool to increase the accuracy and effectiveness of planned improvements to all of its networks, and to also improve the efficiency of its business processes. As part of the agreement, TEOCO will also provide training to C&W’s employees on how to use the tool.

“We already know TEOCO and its solutions from its impressive work with other major operator groups to improve the planning and performance of their mobile networks,” said Sebastien Bec, Chief Technology and Information Officer at Cable & Wireless Seychelles. “Using the ASSET tool, we can deliver a reliable and first-rate quality of mobile service to our subscribers and also the many international visitors who visit our country, in the most cost-effective way possible.”

“Planning and maintaining a mobile network that properly covers the spread-out geography of the Seychelles – over 115 islands – and its widely dispersed population, as well as supporting the densely populated areas, is a unique challenge that requires innovative thinking and a flexible and intelligent approach to network planning,” said Daniel Ramirez,  Director of Planning Products at TEOCO. “We’re pleased to work with Cable & Wireless to expand and improve the performance of its network in the Seychelles while keeping capex and opex spend to a minimum.”
