Two US-based telecommunications support firms say they’re moving to partner with Jamaica’s newest telecoms licensee, Caricel to launch the super fast internet Long Term Evolution, LTE, services in Jamaica.

The Aleppo Group has announced a new partnership with Comtech Telecommunications and Caricel for the LTE roll-out.

Aleppo is a global provider of core network and IT software solutions for communications service providers

While Comtech is a leading provider of advanced communication solutions to government and commercial customers.

Caricel is vying to be the first 4G LTE network in Jamaica ahead of its competitors Digicel and FLOW.

As part of the collaboration, Aleppo will deploy to Caricel its complete LTE monetization solution, including its advanced policy and charging control and home subscriber server.

According to the US firm – with 4G LTE competition intensifying in Jamaica, its LTE monetization platform will enable Caricel to rapidly launch innovative and competitive data offers.

Caricel is Aleppo’s second mobile network operator client in Jamaica. Aleppo has worked closely with Digicel Jamaica on multiple projects since 2009.

The partnership between Aleppo and Comtech to assist Caricel is the first joint LTE deployment involving the two U.S. companies.

In a statement issued this week Aleppo’s Group Vice President, Jude Panetta, said the company’s complete LTE solutions and proven industry experience helped them gain a competitive advantage in Caricel Jamaica’s LTE network roll-out.
