Star Solutions delivers LTE Network to Grenada’s Spice Mobile for 4G mobile broadband services
Richmond, Canada, November 4, 2014 – Affordable Island Communications Inc. (“AIsleCom”) has chosen Star Solutions to supply 4G LTE infrastructure equipment to add high speed mobile data services to its network. Using the latest wireless technology, including Star Solutions’ Sonata Evolved Packet Core (“EPC”) and iCell eNodeB, AIsleCom will enhance its wireless coverage capacity for 4G data rates and services to customers.
Working with Star Solutions enables AIsleCom to overcome key challenges in deploying wireless infrastructure: power consumption, scalability and space. The cost of electricity in Grenada is one of the highest in the world. Choosing the Sonata EPC platform enables AIsleCom to deploy the necessary LTE packet core network functions using compact (single rack unit) and energy efficient server platforms. The solution can be scaled as subscriber capacity and bandwidth demands increase by adding additional server systems. Key functions delivered in the Sonata EPC platform include the Mobile Management Entity (MME), the Serving Gateway (S-GW), the Packet Data Network Gateway (PDN-GW) and the Home Subscriber Server (HSS).
AIsleCom brings high speed broadband services to Grenada using 4G LTE technology. “Our choice of Star Solution’s technology and services is critical to the expansion of high speed data services for customers,” says Dave George, owner of AIsleCom, Inc. The two companies have worked together to deploy a CDMA2000 mobile network in Grenada and this expansion emphasizes AIsleCom’s commitment in delivering the best-in-class service experience to its subscribers.
Jack Mar, CEO of Star Solutions says: “It is a pleasure to work with Aislecom again in introducing 4G LTE technology to Grenada. The AIsleCom deployment is another example of why the Star Solutions’ scalability and distributed network architecture is so well suited for this type of service rollout.”
