SANTIAGO, Chile -- Claro Chile, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the América Móvil group, has become the first operator to launch commercial LTE (long term evolution)* services in Chile. As its sole supplier, Nokia Siemens Networks has provided the radio and core network and services for the operator’s new 4G network, the first of its kind in the country. With the new 4G network, Claro Chile’s customers will soon have access to a host of advanced services.

“Our customers can now look forward to super-fast mobile broadband that will offer them a significantly superior service experience," said Gerardo Muñoz, chief executive officer at Claro Chile. “We have complete faith in Nokia Siemens Networks’ expertise as well as in their commitment to help us deliver world class communication services quickly so that we can satisfy our customers.”

Under the contract, Nokia Siemens Networks provided an LTE radio access network featuring its award-winning and high-capacity Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Stations. The Flexi Multiradio Base Station is a Single RAN (radio access network) base station for GSM, 3G, and LTE. It facilitates an easy and cost-effective site upgrade to LTE using Nokia Siemens Networks’ NetAct management system to ensure consolidated configuration, monitoring and network optimization for Claro Chile’s radio and core network, including iSON automation. To complete the LTE network, the company also deployed its Evolved Packet Core** (EPC) network to help the operator deal with the unprecedented increase in data traffic over its network.
