An expert from GSM equipment manufacturer Nortel is in the Cayman Islands to analyse Cable & Wireless’ bMobile network to ensure that it remains the stronger network for mobile users in the Islands.
Working together with the telecommunication company’s GSM Expansion Project staff the expert is here to review system design to ensure C&W’s customers continue to have the best coverage and network quality available, states a press release.
‘We will go to any lengths to ensure we have the stronger network, best support and the most modern infrastructure for our mobile customers,’ remarked Nicola Buder, C&W’s VP Mobile. ‘Therefore we are delighted to welcome Fikri Lahri, a leading expert in his field, who has travelled from France to assist us in this mission.’
Quality and coverage can be affected by a number of factors including the effect of the different seasons, natural disasters, new buildings being erected and increased demand as the numbers of customers on the system increases.
Mr. Lahri will work to ensure peak quality and coverage is maintained as the network grows and is affected by these factors. His work will compliment the Expansion Project work, which has already planned for new cellular towers at Lower Valley, Seven Mile Exchange, Eastern Avenue, the Port Authority on Harbour Drive and Linford Pierson Highway. In addition the existing towers at Owen Roberts International Airport at Cayman Kai will get multiple antennas pointing in different directions to improve coverage in these areas.
