Cable & Wireless (C&W) Seychelles, the largest telecommunications operator in the island nation, has chosen TEOCO’s ASSET network planning tool to improve the performance of its 2G, 3G and 4G LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) mobile networks. The TEOCO ASSET solution is a radio network planning software tool for boosting capacity and coverage of mobile networks, and also for improving cell positioning and parameter planning. The operator says it will use ASSET to increase the accuracy and effectiveness of planned improvements to all of its networks, and to improve the efficiency of its business processes. As part of the agreement, TEOCO will provide training to C&W’s staff on how to use ASSET.
‘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 David Burks, vice president, Africa at TEOCO.
